The latest breakthrough from EXAIR Corporation is its new Sanitary Flange Line Vac Conveyor, an ideal solution for conveying products through systems that require frequent or mandatory cleaning. This powerful vacuum conveyor is a worthy addition to this manufacturing company’s inventory of intelligent compressed-air equipment.
Helping to prevent contamination
Built out of type 316 stainless steel for maximum hygiene and resistance to corrosion, the Sanitary Flange Line Vac Conveyor is a compressed-air-operated conveyor that can handle large volumes of bulk materials over long distances, including parts, scraps, and trims. EXAIR recommends it for applications in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and food-processing sectors.
The Sanitary Flange Line Vac connects easily to standard clamp-style flange fittings to convert any flange piping system into a more effective inline conveyor, and users can control the material flow rate with a pressure regulator. An optional bracket allows for easy mounting. Most importantly, the ISO 2852-compatible sanitary flanges limit areas that are vulnerable to bacteria growth, minimizing the chances of product contamination.
This vacuum conveyor operates by ejecting a small amount of compressed air to produce a vacuum on one end with high output flows on the other end; this causes an instantaneous response, and regulation of the air pressure provides infinite control of the conveying rate. This is ideal not only for conveying materials, but also for part transfer, fibre tensioning, scrap trim removal and filling operations.
Like other Line Vac conveyors manufactured by EXAIR, this product is among the safest of its kind: it is designed to comply with strict safety standards, such as the pressure requirements of the United States Occupational Safety & Health Administration, as well as the European Union’s Conformité Européene standard. Another key benefit of the Sanitary Flange Line Vac Conveyor is its minimal need for maintenance, due to its lack of moving parts or electricity.
The vacuum conveyor is primarily available in 1½”, 2″, 2½”, and 3″ flange sizes, although smaller and larger sizes are also available for different hose and pipe sizes. Prices begin at US$1,095.
