Vacuum Conveyors New Vacuum Conveyor for Industrial and Food Technology Applications
Piab has recently extended its piflow i/f range with a new vacuum conveyor – the piflow i/f 28L which proves beneficial for larger batch volumes.
Piab’s piflow vacuum conveyors are widely spread. They are often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when dust-free conveying or little maintenance is required. Another advantage is that the pump is based on Piab’s Coax technology, the most energy efficient way to create vacuum. In order to provide even better support to large companies, the firm has expanded its product range to include this vacuum conveyor for larger batch volumes, states the company.
The new vacuum conveyor has a 28L body and the possibility for configurations such as double mounting of the pibasic 400 and 600 pumps on the cover, meaning that the total pump capacity can be increased to 800 or 1200. For example, this will increase production from the current 4 tonne per hour (14L and 600 pump) to 7,5 tonnes per hour with the addition of 2 x pibasic 600, mentions the firm.
The company’s vacuum conveying systems are built of high quality material and have been developed as an answer to the severe requirements of operational safety and hygiene in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. The conveyors are Atex Dust certified and additional models such as piflow p and piflow t are also Atex Gas certified, concludes the firm.
