SteriValves Vacuum Conveyor

SteriValves Vacuum Conveyor

During the last edition of Pharmitech trade show (Bologna13-15April 2016) those who came to see us at our stand had the opportunity to see the Vacuum Conveyor.
Designed and manufactured according to cGMP standards this vacuum conveyor is widely used in pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries where it is necessary to transfer bulk material using suction through an integrated vacuum pump. Stainless steel AISI 316L 1.4404 guarantees high corrosion resistance and compatibility for use in pharmaceutical and food sectors . The mirror-polished finishing ( Ra < 0.5 μ ) of the contact parts and the absence of retention zones allows easy cleaning and helps prevent cross contamination.
Vacuum Conveyor typical applications are loading of reactors , dryers , granulators, mills, containers, tablet presses , capsule filling machines , blister packaging and other applications where there is a height difference. If it is possible to access to an open container (e.g. a drum)  the suction takes place through a  loading nozzle, or through a relay hopper to be positioned at the  outlet of a container  (IBC) or of a process machine.
The discharge takes place by gravity. The integrated vacuum unit allows high efficiency and minimizes the pressure loss of the vacuum line . SteriValves  Vacuum Conveyor can be equipped with inertization and / or ATEX certificate.
Together with its Vacuum conveyor SteriValves proposes the Inflatable gasket valve Pharmalite
Designed for intensive use, Pharmalite is an alternative to traditional butterfly valve. Thanks to its inflatable gasket it drastically reduces wear, prevents contamination of the product and reduces the maintenance operations.
The essential design makes it particularly suitable for use in environments where a high level of hygiene, easy cleaning and maintenance  are required.
