GVF Impianti: Dense phase pneumatic conveying systems

Quality and innovation are keywords to GVF Impianti, the partner for the supply of quality solutions for pneumatic conveying in dense phase and bulk material handling

With more than 50 years of experience, GVF Impianti Srl is the ideal partner able to supply quality solutions for pneumatic conveying in dense phase and bulk material handling in sectors like plastic, pet-food, food, chemical and construction materials.

The wide range of production represents the know-how and the experience gained in each sector of application, making the company become able to design and produce components, complex machines as well as complete turn-key plants since 1964.

Quality and innovation are keywords of GVF Impianti work.

In-house production of PED compliant vessels

To improve the production quality and to control all the production processes internally, GVF Impianti Srl is WPS (Welding Procedure Standard) certified. The company produces in-house PED compliant vessels for its pneumatic conveyors, certified by TÜV (CE0948).

This leads to a higher possibility of products customization and to a stronger level of control for the entire production system quality.

Low transport speed, reduced energy consumption and no products’ contamination during transport

The dense phase pneumatic conveying system transports the product at low speed, using a small amount of air and reducing the energy consumption.

GVF Impianti’s technology prevents contamination between the transported materials thanks to a process control that executes cleaning cycles every product’s change.

It is also available on request a special version of GVF Impianti’s dense phase pneumatic systems, suitable for fragile products, that thanks to a very low transport speed and a very good transport cycle management allows to preserve the product’s granules.

In addition, an innovative loading cone valve made in Ni-Hard cast iron allows to transport also highly wearing products with very good results.

Distinctive marks

What distinguishes all GVF Impianti’s pneumatic conveyors is the special design of the components and the unique air distribution system, which distributes the compressed air in three main parts of the vessel: in the outlet, laterally and inside the vessel.

To these features you should add:

– an automatic management system

– a low wear of pipelines and bends

– reduced product un-mixing

– a very low air consumption

– an efficient air/product ratio

– no mechanical moving parts

– low operational and maintenance costs

– construction material both in carbon steel and stainless steel

Three main types of conveyor explain the production range: GA (with loading butterfly valve suitable for normal wearing products), GC (with an innovative loading cone-valve for highly abrasive products), GA COMBO (compact and modular for reduced available space).

On request it is available also the version with load cells, for weighing the material before the transport, the HP (High-Performance) version for long distances and big hourly capacities, the HT version for products with high temperatures and the Atex classified version.

A full range of components for the pneumatic transport lines completes the company pneumatic conveying systems’ production: pipeline’s boosters, wear-resistant bends, wear-resistant terminal boxes, two-ways diverter valves and multi-ways diverter valves (from 3 up to 12 ways).
