Vacuum Conveying Solutions For The Pharmaceutical Industry
Volkmann Vacuum Conveyors and material handling solutions are used throughout the pharmaceutical industry for feeding and transferring materials to and from processes such as refilling bins, initial weighing, blending, screening, granulating, compacting and compressing.
Mixtures can be conveyed free of segregation due to dense phase conveying both in feeding production processes and successfully transferring capsules, dragees and tablets.
