  • The operating envelope of a pneumatic conveying system, or conveying characteristic (Mills [1]), is the set of all possible operating points that can be achieved by the particular combination of system and bulk material. The extent of the envelope is constrained by the characteristics of the components that comprise the system (for example the maximum pressure rating of the air-mover), and the modes of flow that can be achieved by the material. The properties of the bulk material and the geometry of the pipeline govern the …
