Specializing in the design, manufacture, engineering, and automation of 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 dry bulk materials to both processing and packaging lines. Equipment on display includes:
Refilling Refill Machines via Vacuum Conveying: Auger, Weigh, Count, Vibratory, Form / Fill / Seal
VAC-U-MAX Systems are designed to convey a wide range of bulk-ingredients including powders, flakes, pellets, tablets, capsules, gel caps, food ingredients like coffee, beans, nuts, raisins and other materials like bottle caps, glue chips, and corks. Each “Ready-to-Operate” VAC-U-MAX System consist of five components: pick-up point, convey tubing, vacuum receiver, vacuum producer, and UL-Listed controls, all working in unison, moving bulk materials from plant receipt to packaging refill machine. VAC-U-MAX controls dictate the amount of time the system conveys product to-and-from the receiver to the refill machine. Visit VAC-U-MAX Booth N-5747 for a working demonstration.
In-Plant Bulk Material Transfer to Packaging: Via Pneumatic, Mechanical, and Flexible Screw Conveying
VAC-U-MAX offers a full range of bulk material handling equipment and automated systems 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. A UL-listed designer and fabricator of control panels for general purpose and hazardous locations, VAC-U-MAX control systems can be configured to control a wide range of batch-weighing and packaging refill systems. All VAC-U-MAX components function as a single system for continuous operation, with increased throughput creating cost savings and plant operation efficiency over time. VAC-U-MAX application expertise includes batch weighing systems and multi-ingredient handling systems where bulk ingredients are weighed at pick-up-point for loss-in-weight transfer, or at the end of the system for gain-in-weight transfer.
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 the handling of free and non-free flowing powders and other dusty and difficult-to-convey ingredients. VAC-U-MAX systems offer continuous and/or batch conveying for many applications including hopper loading, auger / feeder refill, blender / mixer loading, batch weighing, tablet press loading, or any application that requires a high level sanitary design, frequent cleaning, or material-from-air separation. Many configurations are available dependent on conveying applications. All food and pharmaceutical 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. A variety of discharge valves types and finishes are available
Since 1954, VAC-U-MAX has provided solid application and process automation expertise for bulk material handling and industrial vacuum cleaning, particularly where combustible dusts are concerned.
