VAC-U-MAX’s straight-sided Tube Hopper material receivers are especially suited for non-free flowing materials, with rapid discharge rates minimizing non-conveying time, while providing higher transfer rates. The straight wall, no edge, no ledge design, terminates in an automatic discharge valve the same size as the tube, allowing rapid discharge of even the most difficult to handle materials.
Designed in stainless steel or carbon steel, in standard or sanitary construction, Tube Hopper material receivers feature short discharge cycles where conveying is virtually continuous, speeding up the loading and batch transfer step. No external vibration or agitation is required, with receivers operable via positive displacement vacuum pumps, regenerative blowers, or VAC-U-MAX’s exclusive air-operated venturi units.
Every VAC-U-MAX pneumatic conveying system can be a closed system, eliminating product contamination, loss via waste, and unnecessary housekeeping. Vacuum operation allows material to be drawn directly from containers, eliminating messing scooping, lifting, dumping and stair-climbing. Vacuum transfer is dust-free with any leakage inward, unlike positive pressure vacuum conveying where leaks are outward.
VAC-U-MAX vacuum receivers offer simple operation with few moving parts, with minimal maintenance and downtime. Material is drawn from drums, bags, totes, bag dump stations, feed bins, bulk bags or other similar containers.

VAC-U-MAX specializes in the design and manufacture of pneumatic conveying components, systems, controls, and support equipment for vacuum conveying, batching, and weighing of bulk materials. With a VAC-U-MAX pneumatic conveying system on site, bulk materials move gently and quickly from point to point, with nothing in the way to impede the efficiency ...
