Bellville, NJ, February 24, 2012 For one-on-one practical information about selecting or troubleshooting pneumatic conveyor systems, handling difficult powders, increasing efficiency in the housekeeping routine with a heavy duty industrial vacuum cleaner, or questions about explosion proof vacuum cleaners designed to meet the OSHA Combustible Dust Standard, visit VAC-U-MAX in booth 111 at Powder and Bulk Engineering's 2012 Southeast Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta, GA, March 13-15, 2012.

Vac-U-Max, an early pioneer of vacuum technology best known for handling free and non-free-flowing powders, specializes in design and manufacture of pneumatic conveyor 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 will have at the show demonstrates some of the basic components that make up pneumatic conveyor systems, and we use those to give people a fundamental idea of how systems operate," says Doan Pendleton, VP of Marketing and Sales at VAC-U-MAX.

In addition to having two operational pneumatic conveyor systems in the booth, VAC-U-MAX also conducts live demonstrations of its powerful heavy duty industrial vacuum cleaners that reduce housekeeping cost, clean up spills quickly and safely, reclaim expensive powders, create a better respiratory environment, and mitigate fugitive combustible dust.

"The most important aspect of attending these shows is the ability to meet face to face with processors and answer difficult powder problems," says Pendleton. You won't see any gimmicks at the VAC-U-MAX booth to pull people in, because the company focuses on rolling up its sleeves and brainstorming solutions.

Users of vacuum conveying systems or plants that are in need of a heavy-duty industrial vacuum cleaner system to combat fugitive dust and comply with the OSHA Combustible Dust Standard often assume they need a custom, one-of-a-kind solution when their application actually calls for a pre-engineered product that offers option capabilities that best fit their application.

"If people want answers to problems they have on the line, or want to increase production, or reduce labor intensive processes, they should stop by the booth and talk to us and our Georgia Rep, Ollie Meyer Company. More than likely we have dealt with a problem that is similar to theirs and can come up with a solution that fits their specific needs," says Pendleton.
