The main objective of this investigation was to formulate a technique for particle velocity determination in pneumatic conveying system. Plastic pellets were transported in a pneumatic conveying experimental rig. A large number of pneumatic conveying tests have been carried out under various experimental conditions. Experimental data was captured by pressure transmitters and analysed. The high-speed video of pneumatic conveying of plastic pellets in horizontal pipe element was recorded by high-speed camera. Mathematical model was developed for solids velocity determination of plastic pellets in horizontal pneumatic conveying. Based on the results of measurement and calculated solids velocity for horizontal conveying of plastic pellets, a model for solids velocity estimation was formulated with a material dependent constant..
