The MDP 2000 Pressure Concept Conveying System is a dense phase, low pressure, medium velocity, continuous conveying system. It is used for conveying low density, heat sensitive, and non-abrasive materials over shorter distances where high pressure compressed air is available. Examples of materials that can be conveyed include plastic pellets, detergent powder, wheat, barley, corn, oats, limestone, coffee beans, granulated sugar, ball clay and boric acid.
Typical conveying line velocities are 2000 to 3000 feet per minute (10 m to 15 m/sec) and the conveying pressure is up to 15 PSIG (1 barg).
This concept utilizes a high density feeder to control the feed rate into the conveying line. The air is supplied by a high pressure - up to 100 PSIG (7 barg) - air compressor.
