At Pack Expo International South Building booth #S-2991, process equipment manufacturer Volkmann USA, Bristol, PA, plans to showcase its versatile VS Series pneumatic vacuum conveying system in operation along with a companion bag discharge station. To be shown transferring dry seeds, the Volkmann VS Series conveyors are currently used in hundreds of food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and other plants worldwide to transfer powders, granules, pellets, small components, and other bulk materials safely, gently, and automatically. The conveyor may be operated in dense phase or lean phase and quickly disassembled without tools for easy cleaning to support frequent product changeovers.
The Volkmann RNT-180 bag discharge station to be displayed at the booth automatically captures fine particles as the material is loaded into the hopper to prevent nuisance dust from entering the workplace. The bag dump station and conveyor are ATEX-certified as explosion-proof by design as standard.
The Volkmann VS pneumatic conveying system and bag dumping station may be tested in advance of Pack Expo in the company’s Bristol, PA test facility to verify performance. Tests may be scheduled at firstname.lastname@example.org.
