The 3TC Turboconveyor* discussed in this paper is a new product developed to provide a simple, low cost source of compressed air for the unloading of bulk commodities and is the first unit specifically designed to accommodate all conditions peculiar to pneumatic conveying operations utilizing the exhaust gases of the diesel engine as a source of power. The heart of the conveying system, a small, efficient, highspeed turbine driven centrifugal compressor, is described in detail.
