Vacuum Tablet Press Loading System

VAC-U-MAX vacuum tablet press loaders are available in complete, ready-to-operate systems, for mounting on single or dual hopper tablet presses. Constructed from 316L Stainless Steel and USDA accepted, sanitary loaders eliminate the need for manual scooping of product and messy dumping or mishandling. Loader draws material directly from drums, boxes, storage containers, and process vessels at rates of 200-250 kg per hour. Compact design is easy-to-clean with no tools required, offering four quick-acting heavy duty clamps for disassembly and cleaning. Dust-tight connection of receiver to press hopper provides maximum cleanliness and product integrity. Automatic pulse jet filter cleaning ensures peak operating performance. System includes level sensor which automatically starts conveying cycle when material level reaches low level in the tablet press hopper. Unit is powered by air-operated venturi power unit, or high efficiency electric blower, with minimum maintenance – very few moving parts. A full opening discharge valve assures complete discharge of material. Complete package includes: receiver, power unit, vacuum, hose, conveying wand, control panel and mounting lugs for easy installation.
