Intermittent Demands...
 In many industrial plants there are one or more applications with intermittent demands of relatively high volume. One example is the use of dense phase transport systems to convey powdered material. Dense phase systems can cause severe dynamic pressure fluctuations affecting quality of the end product in a plant. Usually, the correct sizing and location of a secondary air receiver close to the point of high intermittent demand can relieve this.
 Such demand is often of short duration, and the time between demand events is such that there is ample time to replenish the secondary receiver pressure without adding compressor capacity.
