The oil and cement industry had been conveying this material (grinded and hot ) for some time now.
From what I have seeen is not difficult to convey , though it requires carfull design of feeder bins and dust collector hoppers, also be carefull with the design of the screw conveyors shrowd after the dust collector, this material can refluidize and surge back, or even arch in the hopper, some plants have experienced lenghtly startup delays due to this simple matter. see that your supplier's scope includes the dust collector dust removal system.
