Piab’s piFLOWt conveyor gently handles delicate ingredients and products, promising to revolutionize the automated handling of fragile goods in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Available in Canada from Firing Industries, this conveyor features innovative and groundbreaking new technology that enables it to successfully convey delicate items.
A gentle and efficient solution
There will be no more chipped candy or damaged nuts, seeds, beans, nutraceutical tablets, etc., in plants that employ Piab’s piFLOWt conveyor, explains Jarno Tahvanainen, vice-president of Piab’s Material Handling division.
“A controlled, low-speed, guided entry into the conveyor, and the elimination of all sharp edges, are the keys to our success, ensuring that products are handled with great care in our conveyors,” he says.
The conveyor has the capability to safely transport up to four million items per hour between the various processing units, such as tablet presses, coating drums and packaging lines, avoiding all risks of damage. This eliminates the use of inadequate standard equipment and alternative, often back-breaking, manual procedures.
At the core of piFLOWt is the proprietary piGENTLE, an innovative, patent-pending technology that maintains a gentle flow by regulating the feed pressure of the pump, ensuring that fragile ingredients or products are handled as delicately as possible.
Piab’s piFLOWt is an extension to the company’s popular range of piFLOW conveyors for powder and bulk materials, and is specially developed to meet the stringent demands of the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
Piab’s piFLOWt conveyor is available in Canada from Firing Industries, a supplier of process equipment backed by more than 40 years of experience. The company has earned a reputation for its consultative, problem-solving approach, and takes great pride in working closely with each client to ensure they get the most appropriate solution for their application.
