Pneumatic conveying is one of the most popular methods of handling bulk powdered and granular materials in mining, chemical and agricultural industries. This 3rd edition of this successful book covers both theoretical and practical aspects of the subject. It is unique in its blending of academic materials and good industrial design techniques. Each topic is covered in depth, with emphasis placed on the latest techniques, hardware systems and design and research methodology. Its comprehensive worked examples and table ensure that the reader need not consult any other reference material. In this 3rd edition new sections on simulation and modelling have been added, while the use of tomography as a tool for monitoring pneumatic conveying is also covered.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon customer review for 2nd Edition: "Excellent book, more for theoretical approach of the pneumatic conveying problems and questions. A good presentation for most of the pneumatic conveying components, but it does not enter the real problem of sizing a pneumatic conveying system." (by Vassilis Tsalicoglou)
