Pneumatic Vacuum Conveyors
VOLKMANN’s high quality, pneumatic conveyors transport fine food powders, chemicals, granules, pellets, tablets and other small components under vacuum in lean, dense phase or plug flow conditions without damage or abrasion.
Volkmann vacuum conveyors are easy to install and simple to operate. Working with negative pressure below atmospheric conditions, they help to keep the production environment clean and prevent material escape into the environment.
Due to constant improvement in technology, avoidance of explosion risks by design and a focus on effective sanitary solutions, Volkmann Vacuum Conveyors today are a preferred choice in many industries. They are capable of transferring nano-sized material and fine dust from 0,1 µm up to larger sized tablets, candy or bottle caps. They are effective for highly abrasive powders, mixtures, light filling materials, like fumed silica with only 0,05 kg/l bulk density, but work as well with metal powders with a bulk density of 10 kg/l such as those used in 3D printing and additive manufacturing.
A Volkmann Vacuum Conveyor offers the Food, Pharmaceutical and Chemical industries:
- user friendly systems with safe material transfer
- easy material aspiration and dust-free loading of machines
- gentle dense phase conveying, no segregation of material mixtures
- optimum hygiene conditions
- reliable filter systems in GMP quality
- simple installation and operating
- low energy consumption
- favorable investment- and operating costs
Modular components allow for customized modifications to suit the individual application. Even critical materials can be conveyed safely and conveyors can be adapted for use in hazardous applications inside explosion areas or with highly toxic materials.
Delivery time frames: The modular design of our vacuum conveyors also allows for quick delivery times on a complete vacuum conveyor (2-3 weeks for Food-/Chemical-Vacuum Conveyors, 4-5 weeks for Pharma Vacuum Conveyors, 5-8 weeks for highly customized systems).
Typical vacuum conveying capacities: 100 lbs/h up to 3.5 t/h (max. 12 t/h)
Typical vacuum conveying distance: 45 ft horizontal and 30 ft high (max realized 300 ft horizontal distance + 100 ft height)
We offer pneumatic conveying trials and demonstrations on-site or in our U.S. test facility. We can analyze your material handling task and specify what is needed to convey your products inside the local production environment. We want you to be sure, that our systems will reach your required capacity without damage or abrasions during transport, assuring you of the stability of the vacuum conveying process provided by Volkmann Vacuum Conveyors.
Make all powder handling in production processes safe and reliable, make the work of your production staff easier and improve conditions at the workplace: Choose Vacuum Conveyors from Volkmann for your aspiration and pick-up, transfer and loading of machines with powders and bulk materials.
