Vacuum conveyors comply to typical demands of the Pharmaceutical Industry (e.g. FDA, cGMP, WIP, CIP). They transport materials under vacuum sanitary and emission free. The systems are small in relation to the transfer rates achieved and highly flexible to install. Vacuum conveyors are the first choice for the transfer of powders in most pharmaceutical applications.
Vacuum conveyors and material handling solutions from Volkmann are used for feeding and transferring materials to and from processes like refilling bins, initial weighing, blending, screening, granulating, compacting and compressing. Mixtures can be conveyed free of segregation due to dense phase conveying, e.g. to feed materials into filling machines. The systems can be used for the transfer of capsules, dragees and tablets successfully, too.
VS Vacuum Conveyors are modular and sanitary design. They are easy to dismantle without tools. Their single parts and assemblies are compact and lightweight.
For such applications, which require the highest surface quality and a minimum of connections and gaskets, Volkmann PPC Vacuum Conveyors are the preferred choice. The rinsing and cleaning is easier. Due to their very smooth and gap-free design, they can be equipped with WIP and CIP functions. PPCs can be installed within Containment systems and Isolators, e.g. to refill materials from bin to bin.
Volkmann Pharma hoists are used for stationary and mobile operation to make the handling of vacuum conveyors easier.
Volkmann offers Vacuum Conveyors in combination with Isolators and stations for contained feeding of materials. The bag unloading and material sending station RNT-CON discharges materials from bags and other bins under vacuum in a contained system.
