Volkmann Inc. introduces a new line of low-profile pneumatic pharmaceutical conveyors that is part of the PPCVS series. These new models feature a purpose-designed, low-profile vacuum pump and reverse-jet shock tank, providing a necessary solution for conveying tablets and capsules in restricted height areas. In addition, by adding these models, Volkmann now also offers common sizes throughout its range of products, allowing easy access to spare filters fitting multiple units. Pictured is an ATEX-certified PPC250VS model discharging through a split butterfly valve. It includes a HEPA unit and a mobile trolley with pneumatic height adjustment. All Volkmann PPCVS units feature a one-piece, gap-free design with a smooth, polished stainless steel surface. Their modular, quick-release, best-in-class cGMP designs also allow for no-tools cleaning. The units feature a patented QX filter system with its unique connection to the filter plate. Replacing the commonly used felt seal or ‘O’ ring seal, this purpose-designed double seal ensures complete isolation of the process down to the 0.3 micron size critical to pharmaceutical manufacturing.
