Handling and conveying of powderous material needs a detailed knowledge of the powder properties itself combined with the knowledge how the conveying and handling effects the powder properties. Ideally there is no measurable effect on the powder. For intermediate storage in the plant and Material Distribution Systems alongside the pot room these effects need to be considered. In this paper the influence of various parameter of pneumatic conveying on the material properties is described. Comprehensive tests have been done to evaluate the influence of changes in conveying parameters on the material and vice versa. This paper concludes technical features presented on earlier TMS Annual Meetings and compares them with results from practice. To determine these effects in more depth for Alumina tests have been undertaken with systematically varied material compositions. These data are compared with material data from other industries with the aim to give general conclusions for the material handling.
