Pneumatic waste removal systems must be designed to provide enough suction to convey waste (usually edge trim) to a system air motivator (venturi or fan). They must, also, provide enough air speed, pressure and volume to convey waste to a collection point.
If you chop your waste, keep in mind, you will have to contend with the chopped pieces in the air stream, as they exit the conveying duct and are deposited into a collection point. Pieces may have a tendency to blow around and out of a dumpster or other collection methods due to just the sheer volume of air mixed with the chopped waste, creating a mess around the collection point.
There are several ways to combat this problem:
There are a lot of advantages to chopping waste for conveying in a pneumatic waste conveying system. Chopped waste is easier to convey allowing long conveying distances, chopped waste takes up less space at the collection point and if you are using a material handling fan, chopping may be required. Some thought should be given to the challenges associated with collecting chopped waste from a high volume air stream.
