Volkmann, Inc., will showcase its high quality, high performance vacuum conveying systems for the transport of fine food powders, chemicals, granules, pellets, tablets and other small components in lean, dense or plug flow conditions along with its new products for contained product transfer at this year’s PackEXPO at Booth s-4342. Production facilities can now turn to Volkmann for contained powder transport from the receiving area through final packaging. Volkmann units provide a closed system with dust free feeds to protect employees and the work environment and meet ATEX certification standards for explosion protection.
The most notable new products are Volkmann’s highly sensitive weighing and dosing systems which can accurately weigh and dose powders, granules, food particles, pellets, capsules, tablets and other bulk materials being transferred into and out of product pick-up, through vacuum conveying and into the final unit.
Volkmann has upgraded and increased its line of bag dump (Rip and Tip) stations to include a variety of high containment models from a secure, glove box dump station with 3 discharge options (fluidizing with air or N2, mechanical agitator, pneumatic agitator) to OEB5 with push-push filter and Hepa filter options. They also have upgraded their Bulk Bag unloading frame.
Volkmann also offers a new mobile trolley unit designed to allow the positioning of Volkmann receivers anywhere on the production floor. The unit comes with programmable height adjustment that eliminates hoisting being limited to the dimensions of a rodless or pneumatic cylinder while also overcoming the tendency for cylinders to ‘sag’ with time.
“We are very excited about our expanded capability in material handling this new equipment affords us,” states Volkman president, Nick Hayes. “We listened to our customers and worked to develop products that complement our industry respected vacuum conveyors so that we can satisfy the entire product transfer process requirements from unloading through the final packaging operation.”
