Material transfer by our hygienic and sanitary systems with few mechanical contact parts, combined with our conveyors’ compact and modular design contributes to safe processes, increased productivity and efficiency. The demands from the markets increase (e.g. related to food allergies, kosher food, halal food). The conveyed material remains uncontaminated and pure. Good reasons, that Volkmann’s Vacuum Conveyors are the preferred choice in more and more food related applications. For powder mixtures „á la Carte“, too.
The VS conveyor family fits perfectly with the requirements in the food industry: Modular design can be adapted for a variety of different bulk materials (from fine powdered sugar to roughly cut small pieces of ham). It is simple and can be disassembled without tools making cleaning and product changeover particularly user-friendly.
Most food ingredients are of organic origin and therefore flammable as they can form explosive dust. Volkmann vacuum conveyors are ATEX certified. Even substances with low minimum ignition energy such as maltodextrin or cornflour are transported reliably, efficiently and safely. In the food industry, mechanical conveying systems are often replaced because they are no longer able to meet the increased requirements for transportation.
