VAC-U-MAX announces exhibition at Powder & Bulk Solids Expo 2017, May 16-18, Toronto Congress Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Booth 1818, exhibiting the latest process automation solutions for powder and bulk material handling, for the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical industries. Equipment on display includes sanitary loaders / receivers for complete continuous bulk material transfer. VAC-U-MAX systems engineering capabilities and application experience includes dilute and dense phase vacuum conveying, dilute and dense phase positive pressure conveying, multi-ingredient handling, aero-mechanical and flexible screw conveying, and batch weighing systems. Also on display, NFPA-compliant continuous-duty industrial vacuum cleaning equipment for fine powders with continuous bagging options.
Continuous Bulk Material Handling Systems for Powders & Granular Materials
Designed to convey powders, pellets, flakes, granular materials, or any difficult conveying powders, VAC-U-MAX systems offer continuous conveying for many applications including hopper loading, loss-in-weight feeder refill, blender loading, batch weighing, tablet press loading, 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, creating cost savings and plant operation efficiency over time with increased throughput. VAC-U-MAX application experience 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.
Sanitary Powder-Handling Receivers for Food and Pharmaceutical Applications
VAC-U-MAX sanitary receivers offer the most versatile solution for the handling of free and non-free flowing powders and other bulk materials. Many configurations are available, dependent on conveying applications, including batch weighing, loading tablet press machines, mix tanks, blender, hopper loading, and loss-in-weight feeder refill. All food and pharmaceutical equipment is constructed from 316L Stainless Steel and USDA accepted, with convey rates ranging from 500 pounds per hour to 5,000 pounds per hour and beyond. Variety of discharge valves types and finishes are available.
NFPA-Compliant Industrial Vacuum Cleaning Systems
VAC-U-MAX product line includes a full range of portable and central industrial vacuum cleaning units and systems, engineered for specific applications that address issues like worker exposure to dusts, chemical compatibility, flammability, and combustibility. Models on display include:
· Model 850: Continuous-Bagging Vacuum Cleaning System for Fine Powders & Combustible Dusts
The VAC-U-MAX Model 850 Industrial Vacuum Cleaner is designed to reduce operator exposure to fine powders, improving material handling of dusty debris. This continuous-duty vacuum is equipped with a continuous bagging system that eliminates dumping of a drum or rigid collection container. Closed bags prevent dust clouds, with unit containing a unique filter cleaning system that eliminates the need for compressed air and solenoid controls.
Model 40012: Air-Powered Vacuum Cleaner for Fine Powders & Combustible Dusts
Vacuum cleaner features pulse-jet filter cleaning system for Class II, Division 2 environments. The 55-gallon air-powered unit is completely grounded and bonded, meeting NFPA 70 requirements. VAC-U-MAX air-powered vacuums do not use electricity and do not generate heat, meeting the definition of an “intrinsically safe system”.
