Our History

Clyde Materials Handling Ltd was founded in 1974 and began supplying pneumatic conveying equipment to the foundry, coal power and steel industries. Much of that early pioneering technology is still in use throughout the world but now in industries as diverse as metals, minerals, foods, ag/grain, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

During the 1980's and 90's, the company acquired a number of world-leading brands, some dating back to 1897, significantly increasing its knowledge and skill base, and helping to secure its position as one of the world's leading pneumatic conveying specialists. This process also extended the product base and industry spread.

Today, Clyde Process is recognised as a global materials handling solutions provider. It offers levels of service from equipment supply through to total turn-key solutions inclusive of design, installation, commissioning and training and systems can be found operating in every part of the developed world.

In 2007, Clyde Process Solutions plc acquired MAC Equipment, Inc , a US-based provider of pneumatic conveying, dust filtration and material handling valve technologies. MAC's range of technologies have been integrated with Clyde Materials Handling to create a world-leading provider of pneumatic conveying, pneumatic injection, dust filtration and material handling valves for process industries.

No one else has more specialised experience than Clyde Process and no one else is better equipped to deliver the right solution to the customer.

Clyde Process is a member of SHAPA, the Solids Handling and Processing Association and the MHEA, Materials Handling Engineering Association.


Vacuum Dense Phase System

Clyde Process Vacuum Dense Phase (VDP) pneumatic conveying systems offer end users the flexibility of a vacuum system with the product protection properties of a dense phase conveying system.  Using high vacuum pumps and special feeding mechanisms, moving slugs of material are formed and conveyed at sub-atmospheric pressures.  The result is minimized pipe friction and maximum protection for multiple applications.
