Wear resistant bends for pneumatic conveying

Bends in pneumatic conveyor lines cause load loss leading to lower flow rates. Pumping abrasive materials causes ordinary cast-iron bends to wear out over time causing product loss and system downtime.

Convey abrasive materials through bends with low-loss and wear

GVF Impianti offers wear-resistant bends for dense phase pneumatic conveyor lines. They are produced in cast iron with Ni-Hard carbonitriding for increased wear resistance. GVF bends are supplied with a revolving split flange which allows them to be rotated as desired. They are supplied with soft gum die casting gaskets and are fitted with an eye-bolt for uplift support.

The CSQ Series bends are squared bends, available with two or three channels in sizes of 2-5 inches. CSQ bends allow the product to form a bed in the bend which helps reduce wear.

The CM series of segmented bends is available in sizes of 2.5 to 4 inches. CM bends are designed to minimize loss of load at the bend. They are composed of three sectors of 30° and can form 30°, 60° and 90° bends. The three sector construction allows replacement of a single element.

Applications include foundry sand handling and conveying of other fine, abrasive or granular solids including feldspar, fly ash, alumina, carbon black, candies, resins, beans, nuts, and grains.

BENEFITS FOR YOU:

  • Reduce replacement downtime with wear-resistant bends
  • Easy installation with rotatable flange and eye-bolt
  • Increase flow rates by minimizing load loss with segmented bends
  • Cut maintenance costs with single segment replacement

GVF Impianti is a market-leader in the production of dense phase pneumatic conveyor´s plants and of bulk materials handling.
