PNEUMATIC CONVEYING SYSTEMS

Our team of experts established Neu Engineering in 1965, marking the start of a development trajectory that has seen FPE Global become a leader in pneumatic conveying.

Pneumatic conveying is our core activity, we are world leaders and innovators in the technology. Every conveying technique is used; pressure and vacuum, closed loop, dilute and dense phase and low velocity.

State of the art test and development facilities, equipped with the complete range of conveying techniques and other processing equipment.

FPE Global produces its own innovative range of pneumatic conveying systems, which utilise air pressure to transport bulk materials from one location to another via a pipe network.

The type of system is classified in terms of its “phase density”, i.e. the mass of product compared to mass of air in the system. FPE Global provides the full range of lean phase and dense phase or NEU phase conveying systems, tailoring each product to match the customer’s individual needs.
