piab is trusted by many companies in the food-processing sector for smart processing solutions for the automated world – including its industrial vacuum conveyors, which are available in Canada from Firing Industries. What distinguishes piab from its competitors is its understanding that conveyors need to handle food products as gently as possible.
That is why piab has designed its innovative piFLOW®t vacuum conveyor to convey food slowly and carefully, with guided entry, controlled low speed, and no sharp edges.
Providing a gentle touch
These industrial vacuum conveyors provide a gentle touch to the movement of fragile food products like candy, roasted coffee beans, whole nuts, and nutraceutical tablets. This is possible by way of the piFLOW®t’s groundbreaking flow-control system, piGENTLE®, a proprietary, patent-pending technology that regulates the feed pressure of the pump in order to keep the flow gentle and prevent needless damage to fragile items.
The piFLOW®t blends this innovative technology with a unique guided entry and no sharp edges to solve common problems with other kinds of industrial vacuum conveyors, particularly when handling delicate food products.
piab has designed and built the piFLOW®t to transport as many as four million items in an hour, which makes it suitable for moving any fragile items in a food-processing plant. In moving ingredients and products between tablet presses, coating drums, packaging lines, and other processing units with no damage, this device eliminates the need for inadequate standard equipment and exhausting manual procedures.
An upgrade of piab’s acclaimed and very popular piFLOW® conveyors for powder and bulk materials, piFLOW®t has been designed specifically for the strict demands of hygiene, health, and safety of the food-processing, pharmaceutical, and chemical sectors. Spare parts and accessories are also available. piFLOW®t represents the cutting edge in vacuum conveyors for fragile items.
