Yes you can do almost anything with pneumatic conveying and get away with it.
You pay a price though.
The sloped pipeline will wear out faster than a combination vertical horizontal.
You can fall out of suspension if this was a diluted phase system, near the treshold, and present chugging and you might end out recirculating some particles after you shut down the solids feed.
Is there any way you can change the layout to go horizontal and then vertical?
like keeping your pipeline horizontal all the way to the end of the conveyor belt and then using the structure to hold the pipeline just go vertical.
It is always tempting to use the belt conveyors walkway as support for pneumatic conveying lines, it is there it is cheap. it is out of the way and it is logic. but sometimes it backfires.
