Compounding, Extrusion, Resin Production, Masterbatch

The Plastics Industry demands equipment that will handle bulk powders with maximized focus on continuous throughput, machine uptime, safety, productivity, and end-product quality — while minimizing downtime, dusting, & degradation.

 DUST-FREE MATERIAL TRANSFER
• Material is drawn directly from drums, super-sacks, storage containers, totes, or other process vessels — without manual lifting, stair-climbing or messy dumping.
• Automated systems can be completely sealed minimizing fugitive and combustible dust.
• Any potential leakage will be inward — no materials or combustible dust discharged into the work area.
• Filtration based on application requirements — Unifilter, Multi filter (sock), Multifilter (pleated bag), or cartridge filter
• All systems are available with secondary HEPA filtration located ahead of the vacuum producer.

WHY VACUUM CONVEYING?
• Eliminate hand scooping & messy dumping
• Any potential air leaks are inward, not outward
• Powders/Granular materials delivered in a closed process
• Material easily & safely delivered from point A to point B
• Material is discharged into the process with control
• Ideal for large containers, reduces frequent container changes
• Long service life and lower cleaning costs
• Minimal maintenance due to few moving parts
• Reduced downtime, reduces operating costs
• Vacuum conveying lines can be routed between floors, through partitions, around machinery — and can be easily re-routed to accommodate process modifications.
• Ideal for Toll Processors - adaptable, easily integrated, automated, and reused.
• Allows floor-level loading, no manual lifting, ladder or stair climbing, trip/fall hazards, heavy lifting, or messy dumping.
• Mobility brings vacuum conveying to the extruder

DILUTE PHASE MAXIMIZED
• Material entrained in the air stream
• Handfuls to 25,000 lbs/hr (11,000 kg/hr)
• Less then 300 ft (90m) convey distance
• Up to 6” (150mm) convey line

SAFETY & CERTIFICATION
• Explosion protection available based on the application
• Rupture Discs, Flame-less Venting, Chemical Suppression, Pressure Containment, Inlet & Outlet Isolation Valves
• Conveying with inert gas
• In-House Passivation & Dye-Penetrant Testing
• For Medical Extrusion, FDA Documentation, Passivation Certificates of Compliance and Mill Certifications
• Bag-in-Bag-Out Filtration
• Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) available at VAC-U-MAX’s 6,000 sq/ft customer test lab in Belleville, NJ.

CONTROLS
• UL and C-UL certified control panel designer and builder for General Purpose, Class 1, and Class 2 environments
• VAC-U-MAX controls with local PLC or remote plant system including Allen-Bradley, Siemens, RTU, Modbus +, Modbus/TCP, Allen Bradley DF1, Device Net, Ethernet/IP & Profibus DP.
