Hammertek Pneumatic Conveying Elbows

CMT offers industrial conveying elbow pipes used in many pneumatic conveying applications by HammerTek Corporation. Hammertek manufacturers a patented Wear Resistant Industrial Conveying Elbow and Streamer Reducing Conveying Elbow which is used in the following conveying systems:

  • Pressure & Vacuum Systems
  • Dilute & Dense Phase Systems
  • Slurry Systems
  • Steam, Condensate & Pumping System

Title - Wear Resistant Elbow

Wear and tear can becoming a problem with pneumatic conveying systems and other industrial elbows. The Hammertek Smart Elbow is the solution to your wear and tear problems. Hundreds of applications where ceramic lined, ceramic backed, concrete reinforced, wear backs and others have failed consistently within 3-12 months. By implementing the HammerTek Smart Elbows, the wear problem has been solved.

HammerTek has been solving degradation/ "streamer" problems for over 15 years.  It’s said that 70% of all streamers are caused by the elbows.  By implementing an industrial elbow that does not allow material to bounce off the walls, which causes heat and eventual streamers down stream, streamers can be reduced by 50-70%. 

The reason for our success with conveying elbows is HammerTek's patented vortice design.  This design enables material to change direction by deflection, as opposed to impact, as is the case with other conveying elbows.   HammerTek's conveying elbow actually "lifts" the material away from the outer wall, returning the product to laminar flow (not hitting the walls) within a distance equal to twice your conveying pipe diameter.  Compare 8" of "bouncing" to 6 - 8 feet for a standard long radius elle.

HammerTek eliminates the streamers by eliminating the main heat source (impact point) and the secondary heat source, the back of the conveying elbow as 80% of the pellets slide along the back wall of the long radius sweeps.  Feel your LRES and you will likely find them warm or hot.  Your product begins melting due to the heat and comes apart.  Generally you will see the interior tubing coated with plastic a few feet beyond the conveying elbow, as the air starts to cool the streamers they adhere to the tube.  We can eliminate this for you!
