Pneumatic conveying characteristics of a dilute phase flow in a circular horizontal pipe was predicted using MP-PIC method in OpenFOAM code. The geometry, material and operating conditions are similar to some experimental data in published literature. The pipe diameter is 30.5 mm. The solid particles are plastic pellets which are having 1000 kg/m3 of density and 0.2 mm of particle diameter. The simulations were carried out for 10 m/s of superficial air velocity and for different solids mass loadings 0, 1, 2 and 3. The pressure drop, air velocity profiles and solids distribution were analysed and some of the results were compared with experimental data from the literature. The predicted pressure drops and air velocity profiles show a quite good agreement with the experimental data.
