Whether it is direct loading of blenders, mixers and other vacuum tolerant vessels, gentle handling of empty or
filled capsules, the dust-free transfer of ingredients to table presses, or clean up of materials, pneumatic
conveying systems and vacuum technology have become an indispensible tool in streamlining pharmaceutical
and nutraceutical production lines.
Pneumatically conveying material to processing equipment is a relatively simple concept consisting of 5
components that come together to act as a single unit. In the most basic of explanations, material gets sucked
into chamber for a period of time long enough to fill a container, the vacuum turns off, the valve of the chamber
opens up, discharges the material, closes and then the process repeats itself again.
