Vac-U-Max batch-weigh vacuum convey systems are designed for the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries to custom deliver powders, flakes, and other granular bulk materials to process vessels with a high level of accuracy based on preprogrammed formulations.
Systems are designed in 316L stainless steel and USDA Dairy accepted, combining modern computerized technology with innovative pneumatic and mechanical conveying, for automated dust-free ingredient handling with little or no human interface.
Bulk materials are conveyed from drums, bags, or super sacks with the system automatically batching precise weight of ingredients to the weigh hopper. Batch-weigh system accuracies are within 0.5% of the batch size, allowing for greater control of end-product quality and inventory control of bulk ingredients to the process, maximizing on production and overall cost savings.
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 systems. Smart control stations can be located in remote areas of the plant away from production machinery, and can be designed to communicate with plant DCS systems.
