Vac-U-Max ColumnLift pneumatic conveying system

The ColumnLift pneumatic conveying system provides a better way to move powders and granular materials from floor level to up-and-over process equipment, increasing productivity while reducing manual ingredient handling.

The system vacuum conveys from handfuls to 5,000 lb/hr and provides easy access to mixers or process vessels requiring opening and closing hatches. The ColumnLift reduces lifting, stair climbing, and manual dumping of ingredients with heavy containers remaining at ground level, maximizing regulatory compliance including FSMA (sanitation) and OSHA (walking/working surfaces).

The vacuum receiver is easily brought down to floor level for cleaning and maintenance, utilizing minimal floor space (18-in.-diam baseplate). The system works with all types of containers including paper bags, drums, IBCs, silos/day bins and bulk bags.
