Part of the Powder Technology Series book series (POTS, volume 8)


For pneumatic transport the basic principle of analysis is the material balance of the solids transported. A number of different situations could arise for the control of the solids flow. The macro approach to the control analysis will be considered first; then more detailed distributed models of the actual solids flow will be explored.
