17.08.2020 Vacuum conveyor handles large batch volumes

Piab, Täby, Sweden, has extended its piFLOW® i/f range with the introduction of a new vacuum conveyor that allows for larger batch volumes.

The company’s piFLOW vacuum conveyors are often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors where there is a requirement for dustfree conveying combined with minimal maintenance. Another advantage is that the pump is based on Piab’s COAX® technology, reportedly the most energy-efficient way to create vacuum.

The new piFLOW i/f has a 28L body and the possibility for configurations such as double mounting of the piBASIC 400 and 600 pumps on the cover, meaning that the total pump capacity can be increased to 800 or 1200. For example, this will increase production from the current 4t/h (14L and 600 pump) to 7.5t/h with the addition of 2 x piBASIC 600.

Piab's vacuum conveying systems are built of high quality material and have been developed as an answer to the stringent requirements of operational safety and hygiene in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. Additional models such as piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are additionally ATEX Gas certified.
