VAC-U-MAX announces exhibition at ProFood Tech 2017, PMMI’s new biennial food and beverage processing event powered by Pack Expo, Anuga and IDFA, that will be held April 4-6, 2017, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL Booth 1132, where VAC-U-MAX will exhibit several “Plug-and-Play Vacuum Convey“ Systems for Food Ingredient Transfer to Processing and Packaging Lines. Specializing in the design, manufacture, engineering and automation of food processes, VAC-U-MAX combines state-of-the art electronic technology with innovative mechanical and pneumatic conveying technologies, designing systems for conveying, weighing, and batching of over 10,000 various bulk materials. Experts at both conveying and cleaning combustible dusts, VAC-U-MAX will also exhibit specialty industrial vacuum cleaning equipment for cleaning fine dusty debris via air-powered, non-electric industrial vacuum cleaners.

“Plug-and-Play” Receipt-to-Process Vacuum Conveying Systems for Food Ingredients
VAC-U-MAX Systems are designed to convey a wide range of food ingredients including powders, flakes, pellets, tablets, sugar, coffee, nuts, beans, raisins and other materials like bottle caps, glue chips, and corks. Each “Ready-to-Operate” VAC-U-MAX System consists of five components: pick-up point, convey tubing, vacuum receiver, vacuum producer, and UL-Listed controls, working in unison for dust-free conveying of food ingredients from plant receipt to processing or packaging line. VAC-U-MAX controls dictate the amount of time the system conveys product to-and-from the receiver to the process. VAC-U-MAX application expertise also includes batch weighing systems and multi-ingredient handling systems, where bulk ingredients are weighed at the pick-up-point for loss-in-weight transfer or at the end of the system for gain-in-weight transfer.
Visit VAC-U-MAX Booth 1132 for a working demonstration.
Sanitary Vacuum Conveying for Powders and Combustible Dusts: FDA / USDA, 3A-Dairy Accepted
Serving the global Food, Pet Food, Snack Food, Tortilla, Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Nutraceutical Industries since 1954, VAC-U-MAX sanitary receivers offer the most versatile solution for handling free and non-free flowing powders and other dusty or difficult-to-convey food ingredients. VAC-U-MAX systems offer continuous and/or batch conveying solutions, including hopper loading, auger / feeder refill, blender / mixer loading, or any application requiring high level sanitary design, frequent cleaning, or material-from-air separation. All food processing equipment is 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.
Utilizing Pneumatic, Mechanical, and Flexible Screw Conveying for In-Plant Bulk Material Transfer
VAC-U-MAX offers a full range of bulk material handling solutions incorporating pneumatic, aero-mechanical, and flexible screw conveying technologies. VAC-U-MAX systems are designed to deliver flexibility, integration, efficiency and dust-free operation with little or no human interface, particularly where combustible dusts are a concern. VAC-U-MAX is a UL-listed designer and fabricator of control panels for general purpose and hazardous locations, with control systems configured to control a wide range of bulk ingredients and conveying technologies.
VAC-U-MAX Industrial Vacuum Cleaning Systems: Minimizing Combustible Dust Exposure
VAC-U-MAX invented the world’s first industrial vacuum cleaner, powered by compressed air in 1954 – first designed for combustible dust and high suction required by textile mills in New Jersey. The variable orifice venturi allows operation with the lowest air consumption on the market. Utilizing no electricity, no motors creating spark, VAC-U-MAX air-driven vacuum cleaners are the ideal solution for cleaning combustible dusts.
NEW! Model 15 Combustible Dust Air-Vac for Food Processing Environments
VAC-U-MAX introduces the newest member of its Combustible Dust Vacuum Cleaner product line. This new model avoids expensive electrical components and uses the VAC-U-MAX venturi power unit, proven to have the lowest compressed air consumption in its product class. Model 15 fills a niche between VAC-U-MAX’s 5-gallon hand-held vacuum and the 30-gallon model for combustible dusts. Model 15 is designed for fine powders with a static-conductive PTFE primary filter and secondary cartridge filter. Unit collects powders in off-the-shelf static-conductive polybags which eliminates the mushroom cloud that comes with drum dumping. Standard construction is 304SS/316SS with bead-blast finish, and is suitable for food environments. Model 15 is also equipped with static-conductive compressed air hose, casters, ATEX-certified vacuum hose and complete cleaning tool kit.
