Under the sponsorship of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), a project is now near completion to assess the technical and economic feasibility of using pneumatic capsule pipelines (PCPs) for underground transportation of freight in.

Pneumatic tubes are systems that propel cylindrical containers through networks of tubes by compressed air or by partial vacuum.

They are used for transporting solid objects, as opposed to conventional feasibility of pneumatic capsule pipeline systems book, which transport fluids. Pneumatic tube networks gained acceptance in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for offices that needed to transport small, urgent packages over.

Capsule pipelines transport freight in feasibility of pneumatic capsule pipeline systems book propelled by a fluid moving through a pipeline.

When the fluid is air or another gas, the technology is called pneumatic capsule pipeline (PCP), and, when water or another liquid is used, it is termed hydraulic capsule pipeline (HCP).

Owing to the low density of air, capsules in PCP cannot be suspended by air at ordinary speeds. New York City's post offices had a capsule pneumatic pipeline (8 inch diameter) for over five decades, () before the department switched to use of trucks only under Eisenhower ("What's good for GM .").

The 26 miles of dual pipes, carried the mail at (a very steady) 35 mph between branches. Pneumatic capsule pipeline (PCP) uses wheeled capsules (vehicles) to carry cargoes through a pipeline filled with air.

IGURE. 1 PCP. WHEELED CAPSULE (DRAWING BY. UMITOMO. ETALS) The air is used to push the capsules through the pipeline. For a PCP of 3-foot diameter, each capsule can carry about two tons of cargo, traveling at 25 mph. Large PCP Systems Considered for Underground Freight Transport in New York City Sponsored by the NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority), a study was completed in on determining the technical and economic feasibility of using large PCP systems for underground freight transport in New York City.

The pipeline, which is the major part of the capsule transport system, is maintenance free [1]. The greatest advantage of this system, it can carry large size cargoes with standard containers [ History and Recent History Pneumatic Capsule Systems. Mines are growing increasingly interested in Pneumatic Capsule Pipelines for horizontal and vertical transportation.

One of the feasibility of pneumatic capsule pipeline systems book reasons to motivate miners to consider P.C.P.'s is the cost of fuel. Due to the complexities of system design, a lack of reliable design data, and a poor understanding of compressible flow, many pneumatic conveying systems pose numer- ous problems on commissioning.

Pipeline blockage and conveying systems not capable of achieving the desired material flow rate are common by: A little history of pneumatic capsule pipelines and underground freight transport Underground freight transport can take place in the form of capsule pipeline transport when it concerns smaller objects (less than 1 m diameter) and for larger objects in the form of Cited by: Liu H.

A pneumatic air tube transport system is a distributed network of tubes through which carriers of various sizes containing small items are driven by air flow, which may typically be either a point to point or a multipoint system.

Direct operating costs for the proposed pneumatic installations, including the container dray from the pneumatic terminal to the transfer station, would be 30% less than those for conventional manual.

An alternative approach to the pipeline transportation of bulk solids, especially in cases where, for some reason, it is undesirable for the conveyed material to come into contact with the carrier fluid, is to enclose the bulk solid in cylindrical or spherical capsules, of diameter only slightly less than that of the pipeline, and then use the.

ENGINEERING FEASIBILITY AND COST No detailed engineering feasibility and cost study of the Alaska to California pipeline concept has yet been undertaken.

There were also a number of papers presented on the subject of pipelines in general. From inside the book. Pipeline engineering has struggled to develop as a single field of study due to the wide range of industries and government organizations using different types of pipelines for all types of solids, liquids, and gases.

This fragmentation has impeded professional development, job mobility, technology transfer, the diffusion of knowledge, and the move5/5(2). This dissertation studies the tubular linear induction motor (TLIM) for application in a pneumatic capsule pipeline (PCP) system.

The TLIM concept is used to develop a non-intrusive capsule pump for the PCP to transport freight. Employing the non-intrusive capsule pump allows the capsule free passage through the pump, thereby increasing the system throughput.
