Case Study: Pneumatic Conveying Systems Prescription For Maximizing Material Delivery

Source: VAC-U-MAX

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.
