Optimizes Material Flow and Provides Safe Contained Transfer
Hainesport, NJ (Vocus) -- Volkmann, a market leader in vacuum conveying, introduces its “No-Tip Unloader” vacuum conveyor. The No-Tip Unloader has been developed to eliminate the material flow issues involved when transferring powders, granules, pellets, capsules, tablets and other bulk materials through conventional unloading methods requiring tipping of the raw material drum, bin or IBC. This vacuum transport can supply packaging lines, mixers, filling machines, tablet presses or any other kind of process equipment or vessel (containers, silos etc.) on demand.
The No-Tip Unloader, when combined with a Volkmann vacuum conveyor, offers an interactive, enclosed transfer system with considerable advantages over conventional, old-fashioned, mechanical transport technologies. It features a unique lifting column equipped with three product sensors for product recognition. Activated by the sensors, the column guides the product suction device while initially holding the product repository liner bag in place, and then lifting it up to exhaust as much product as possible in the final suction periods. The suction process continues automatically until no product is recognized or an operator mechanically stops the process. The control logic of the No-Tip Unloader has been designed to allow handling of different materials without a new set-up.
