Fan Speed Reduction in Pneumatic Conveying Systems in the Secondary Wood Products Industry, No.1

The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (Alliance) has funded a project to increase the energy efficiency of low-pressure pneumatic conveying systems (PCS) in the secondary wood products industry. In these systems, centrifugal fans provide the suction needed to remove and transport wood waste generated by various steps in the manufacturing of wood products.  The project intends to improve PCS efficiency by demonstrating and promoting the benefits of a fan speed reduction strategy for these systems.
