Belleville, NJ, October 13, 2010 From innovative systems for food packaging and reloading applications as well as pharmaceutical applications such as Tablet Press Loading systems that are complete, ready-to-operate systems, VAC-U-MAX, pioneer in pneumatic conveying systems since 1954, will be demonstrating its equipment in booth E-7018 in the Upper Lakeside Center at Pack Expo in Chicago, IL October 31 November 3, 2010.

Specializing in the design and manufacture of vacuum conveyor systems and support equipment for the conveying, weighing, and batching of dry materials, VAC-U-MAX combines modern electronic technology with innovative mechanical and pneumatic design to customize vacuum conveying systems that perform sophisticated operations with little human assistance, deliver flexibility, integration and efficiency that have long been sought after.

Pneumatic conveying systems have quickly become the method of choice to move product from the manufacturing line to the packaging line because they provide the most efficient approach to coordinate with packaging equipment.

Vacuum producers are the core of pneumatic conveying systems and work with the control panel to manage the flow of material through the convey tubes to the vacuum receivers or packaging equipment. Vacuum producers come in many shapes and sizes. Two of the most common vacuum producers are venturi-powered units that run on compressed air, and positive displacement pumps that run on electricity.

Vac-U-Max has extensive industry experience in the packaging arena, and offers pre-engineered systems that address common conveying problems in the packaging line. Because each packaging operation has unique requirements, vacuum conveying systems are adapted according to how much automation a manufacturer desires and the amount of packaging equipment involved.
In a packaging line, whether moving caps and closures, glue chips, or dry materials such as powders, conveying experts compile a great deal of information about the application to design an efficient pneumatic conveyor system.
VAC-U-MAX offers a wide range of standard pneumatic conveying systems, weighing systems and accessories, plus semi-custom systems, as well as totally custom-engineered systems. They offer factory testing of trial materials, as well as installation assistance and full maintenance documentation. They are the provider of choice of many well-known companies in the food, drug, and industrial manufacturing sectors.
