The Volkmann VS series of vacuum conveyors can be used to effectively transfer fine particles, powders, tablets, and capsules into bagging and packaging machinery, avoiding costly worker injuries related to manual loading of machinery and environmental hazards and contamination issues created by airborne particles that escape during transfer. The VS gentle air flow allows safe product transfer in lean, dense, or plug-flow conditions, eliminating the concerns of product segregation or separation often caused by vacuum conveying. Its flexibility suits diverse production needs, covering conveying distances up to 150 ft and heights up to 60 ft, with a transport capacity of up to 10,000 lb/hr for typical granular particle sizes of 100-500 µm and a bulk density of 40 PCF. The airflow velocity critical to maintain product integrity product through transfer can be varied to suit the material and application with associated vacuum levels between 5 and 28 in. Hg for a compressed air supply of between 45 and 90 psig. Volkmann Inc., Hainesport, NJ 609-265-0101 www.volkmannUSA.com
