Conveying Ultra Light Bulk Density Powders No Longer a Challenge

Conveying light bulk density powders like fumed silica, diatomaceous earth and micro ballons can be challenging because they behave in a fluid manner and when moving them mechanically or pneumatically they can create fugitive dust as well as lump up, causing process problems.

However, VAC-U-MAX’s new POWD’r PUMP’r was designed as a complete plug-and-play system specifically for conveying these ultra light powders.

The combination of the ergonomic system’s Bag Dump Station with its 5 cubic foot capacity hopper that enables operators to fit entire large bags of ultra light powders into the system, and the integral dust collector with 1.5 hp fan that uses pleated polyester felt filters with PTFE coating to maximize filter filtration and product release, allows ultra fine powders to be pumped into the customer’s process vessel in a safe and dust free environment.

For enhanced safety and operator ease, a lift up door with gas springs is standard with the system that has a small footprint and can be wheeled out of the way.

VAC-U-MAX, the pioneer in pneumatic conveying, has been handling tough powder applications for over 50 years.

For more information about the POWD’r PUMP’r or custom pneumatic conveying systems and support equipment for conveying, vacuum conveying, batching, and weighing materials contact 1800-VAC-U-MAX (822-8629) or visit our website at
