The pressure differential is generated by creating a vacuum, where material will be “carried” by the air flow caused by the vacuum. This mechanism works best with any dry free flowing materials. Should a material be more challenging in its handling characteristics, we also offer a solution to transfer materials which bridging. Vacuum conveyors are ideal for both small and larger applications, where bulk material is fed to the conveyor from big bags, sacks, hoppers, railcars, silos, and other typically dusty containers. They are inherently self-cleaning, have a smaller footprint than other traditional conveyor options, are easy to install, and are energy efficient.
They come with the option to be driven by compress air through our conventional vacuum pump or if compressed air is at a premium we also have the option to supply an electro-mechanical vane pump.
