Piab's new vacuum conveying catalog
Piab's new vacuum conveying catalog

Featuring the piFLOW series of vacuum conveyors, this new 56-page Version 5.0 catalog is a resource guide for a variety of industries including food, chemical, and pharmaceutical.

The catalog includes a Piab Vacuum Academy section that details the principles of vacuum conveying and how it can be used to improve your production process. Terminology is defined and each component of a complete vacuum conveying system is described in detail with illustrations of applications.  

The piFLOW is offered in three models: the piFLOWi for industrial applications, the piFLOWf where food-grade quality is a demand and piFLOWp for premium applications such as food and pharmaceutical.

The vacuum generated by piFLOW is produced in an energy-efficient way, namely through utilizing COAX cartridges. The COAX cartridges are smaller, more efficient, and more reliable than conventional ejectors, which allows for the design of a flexible, modular, and efficient vacuum system. Besides having the COAX technology in common, the three piFLOW models are all configurable so you can build the exact conveyor you need.  The modularity makes them easy to maintain and clean, and they are compact in size.  

The catalog can be downloaded by visiting www.piab.com. For a hard copy, call 800-321-7422 or email [email protected].
