19/06/2017 Vacuum conveying with WIP functionality

Piab, Täby, Sweden, has added wet-in-place capability to its popular piFLOW®p vacuum conveyors, which are widely used in food and pharma industries. WIP spray nozzles are now available for inclusion/retrofitting in new and existing piFLOW p conveying systems. Water sprayed by the WIP nozzles will wet any dust from food or pharmaceutical materials left in conveyors, preventing it from escaping into the air where it could be inhaled by processing staff during maintenance or cleaning procedures. By wetting potentially harmful leftover material before the equipment is opened for cleaning, the spray nozzles ensure that any such dust stays wet-in-place until it can be safely removed.   
 
For maximum performance and coverage, and to make sure as much material as possible is captured as quickly as possible, up to three spray nozzles can be fitted to each conveyor. The configurable design of the piFLOW p conveyor also allows simple retrofitting of WIP units, including extra air filters, in existing conveying systems. The company’s sterile Ultra Low Penetration Air (ULPA, class U15-17) filters are said to provide greater filtration than High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, and are offered as standard accessories for piFLOW p. www.piab.com
