Vacuum conveyors for powder & bulk

Vacuum is used with great advantage in conveying dry powder products through dedicated pipe systems. Piab’s vacuum conveying systems are built of high quality material. When producing food, pharmaceuticals and chemical products there are demands on the highest possible degree of safety as to hygiene and operation. Piab’s piFLOW® conveyors have been developed as an answer to the severe requirements of operational safety and hygiene in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are ATEX Gas certified. All conveyors are available with either an ejector driven vacuum pump or with a mechanical pump.

Premium – piFLOW®p SMART

piFLOW®p SMART is a stand-alone system with machine learning software and sophisticated algorithms that run the application to reach the maximum capacity for the conveyed material. To reach the maximum material capacity an air carrying unit is integrated in the system. If there is a vertical lift higher than 8 meters in the conveying pipeline, Piab is offering a pipeline emptying unit to prevent blockage of the pipeline. All the vacuum conveying functions are controlled by the electrical control unit ECU-15S and its software.

Tablet – piFLOW®t

Piab premium conveyors are designed with a Stainless Steel body (ASTM 316L) and meet the very high hygienic demands of FDA. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are ATEX Gas certified. Typical applications are transfer of tablets, capsules, coffee, granules and other fragile products. Also hygienic applications or places where space is at a premium.

Premium – piFLOW®p

Piab premium conveyors are designed with a Stainless Steel body (ASTM 316L) and meet the very high hygienic demands of FDA. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are ATEX Gas certified. Typical applications are powder and granules transfer, form-fill-seal machines, big bag loading and unloading, drum/bag filling and emptying, mill/sieve/mixer/blender filling, tablet/fragile products transfer, applications in explosive atmosphere, hygienic applications or places where space is at a premium. All conveyors are available with either an ejector driven vacuum pump or with a mechanical pump.

Food grade – piFLOW®fc

This is a conveyor widely used in the industry where food grade quality is a demand. It has a high throughput performance as well as a small foot print. This conveyor is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. Another advantage is that the pump is based on COAX® technology which is the most energy efficient way to produce vacuum. Piab food grade conveyors are designed with a Stainless Steel body (ASTM 304) and seals in direct product contact zones that are in compliance of FDA to meet the demands of industrial food grade applications.

This conveyor is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. Another advantage is that the pump is based on COAX® technology which is the most energy efficient way to produce vacuum. Capacity up to 4 tons/h. Piab food grade conveyors are designed with a Stainless Steel body (ASTM 304) and seals in direct product contact zones that are in compliance of FDA to meet the demands of industrial food grade applications. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are ATEX Gas certified. All conveyors are available with either an ejector driven vacuum pump or with a mechanical pump.

Industrial – piFLOW®i

This is a conveyor widely used in the general industry and sometimes in the chemical industry. It has a high throughput performance as well as a small foot print. This conveyor is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. Another advantage is that the pump is based on COAX® technology which is the most energy efficient way to produce vacuum. Capacity up to 4 tons/h. The general industry often handles abrasive powders that require specially designed equipment. Our conveyors are designed with Stainless Steel body (ASTM 304) to resist wear of parts. Piab conveyors are ATEX Dust certified. piFLOW®p and piFLOW®t are ATEX Gas certified. All conveyors are available with either an ejector driven vacuum pump or with a mechanical pump.
