VAC-U-MAX Demonstrating Pneumatic Conveyor Systems at INTERPHEX 2010

Belleville, NJ, February 25, 2010 - In business since 1954, VAC-U-MAX, an early pioneer of vacuum technology, will be demonstrating two of its most popular pneumatic conveyor systems as well as some of its other vacuum equipment in booth 1978 at INTERPHEX 2010 in New York, New York, April 20-22.

"INTERPHEX is a great place for us to answer questions about processors' most difficult powder problems," says Doan Pendleton, VP of Marketing and Sales at VAC-U-MAX. "We are best known for handling free and non free flowing powders in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets."

Vac-U-Max specializes in design and manufacture of pneumatic conveying systems and support equipment for conveying, weighing and batching of dry materials. The primary technology for conveying is vacuum, but positive pressure pneumatic conveying systems as well as mechanical conveyors, like flexible screw conveyors
, are used as applications dictate.

"The equipment we take to the show demonstrates some of the basic components that make up pneumatic conveyor systems," Pendleton says. "We want people to get a fundamental idea of how a system operates and then we can work with them to design a system that best fits their specific application."

In addition to having two operational pneumatic conveyor systems in the booth, VAC-U-MAX also conducts live demonstrations of how pneumatic conveyor systems can be designed to deliver closures and moderate-sized containers to a filling line.

The company routinely supplies equipment to the pharmaceutical industry to deliver delicate capsules to and from filling machines as well as providing processors with ready-to-operate vacuum Tablet Press Loaders which are furnished as a complete pneumatic conveying system for mounting on customers' presses.

Combining modern electronic technology with innovative mechanical and pneumatic design, programmable control panels with microprocessors are the nerve center for these pneumatic conveyor systems that have reserve capacity to handle a total of sixteen presses. The microprocessor constantly scan level controls on surge bins and initiate conveying of tablet formulation to the receiver over any press requiring material, insuring that no press will run dry, which could cause costly tooling damage.

These loaders eliminate manual scooping of product and messy dumping or mishandling, drawing material directly from drums, boxes, storage containers, or process vessels. Where product separation with conveying powders and granular material is an issue, flexible screw conveyors are implemented to eliminate separation.

All equipment built for pharmaceutical application is USDA accepted and is CE Mark approved.
