Pneumatic Conveying of Major, Minor and Micro Food Ingredients from Drums, Totes, Bags, Super sacks, IBC’s
Designed to convey a multitude of bulk ingredients, VAC-U-MAX systems offer continuous conveying for many applications within the food industry, including hopper loading, feeder refill, direct-charge blender / mixer loading, batch weighing, or any application that requires a high level sanitary design, frequent cleaning, or material-from-air separation. All VAC-U-MAX components function as a single system for continuous operation, increasing productivity, cost savings, plant operation efficiency, throughput, end-product quality, and process safety.VAC-U-MAX sanitary receivers are constructed from 316L Stainless Steel and USDA accepted, with convey rates ranging from 500 pounds (227 kg) per hour to 5,000 pounds (2,268 kg) per hour and beyond, providing dust-free operation for batch and continuous processing.
No Edges, No Ledges”™: Signature Series Vacuum Conveyors
Eliminate hand scooping and dumping and the associated hazards. Vacuum convey powders and granular food ingredients to your processing or packaging line. Stop by Booth 4446 at IBIE 2019 and preview VAC-U-MAX Signature SeriesTM vacuum conveying solutions.
1500 SeriesTM – with conveying rates from handfuls to 1500 lbs//hr (680 kg/hr)
3500 SeriesTM – with conveying rates up to 3500 lbs//hr (1600 kg/hr)
Batch Weighing Systems: Gain-in-Weight (GIW) & Loss-in-Weight (LIW) Batching
Whether delivering a single-ingredient to multiple destinations within bakery processing operations, or multiple Ingredients to a single destination, VAC-U-MAX systems deliver product to the batching station, dispensing ingredients based on precise preprogrammed formulations. VAC-U-MAX systems weigh ingredients at the pick-up-point for loss-in-weight transfer, or at the end for gain-in-weight transfer. For applications requiring batch weighing with scale hoppers suspended on load cells, ingredients are received, with material remaining in the scale hopper until the precise weight or combination of ingredients is achieved. Once achieved, discharge valve opens, and material is discharged to the process below.
Industrial Vacuum Cleaners for Fine Powders: ATEX-Certified, NFPA-compliant
VAC-U-MAX product line includes a full range of portable, continuous-duty and central vacuum cleaning systems engineered for specific applications that address issues like worker exposure to dusts, chemical compatibility, and combustibility. An expert at combustible dust handling, VAC-U-MAX industrial vacuum cleaning systems are available for a wide range of applications including the Models 850 Continuous-Bagging System for Fine Powders and the ATEX-certified, compressed-air powered Model 40012, ideal for fine powders / combustible dusts in Class II, Division 2 environments.
