FIGURE #1: One of the HammerTek Smart Elbow® deflection elbow in the pneumatic line carrying grain to storage areas. The use of this short-radius elbow allows the pneumatic line to hug the wall, saving plant space.
FIGURE #2: The HammerTek Smart Elbow deflection elbow sends "fines" from a line on the floor upwards to the cyclone. These fines are small food particles which are later recycled back into the production line. The upper end of this vertical run is shown in figure 3.
FIGURE #3: This is the upper end of the vertical run shown in Figure 2. The elbow used here turns the fines 90 degrees for entrance into the white cyclone. Figures 1 to 3 all show locations where earlier long-radius elbows gave very poor service. The HammerTek elbows have as yet shown absolutely no wear, and created no trouble of any kind.
