Pneumatic transport is the most commonly performed transport of fine-grained and powder materials to manufacturing plants. It is considered that this is the most applicable transport within the manufacturing companies for the processing of grain and powder materials. The need for this kind of transport to be more sustainable, improved and to perfect encouraged the authors of this paper to address this issue. It is assumed that at a certain point transport system choked due to unforeseen circumstances so it is necessary to make urgent additional works to be returned to the operating mode of the system. Tendency is to make the system predictable and downtime to a minimum.
