Volkmann_Multijector_Vacuum_ConveyorsVolkmann Multijector Vacuum Conveyors are designed to optimize material flow from the supply side to the downstream packaging operation. When used with a level-controlled buffer hopper, Multijector Vacuum Conveyors can transfer from as little as 10 lbs./hr. to 6 tons/hr. over distances up to 200 feet, all in dust-free, operator friendly and healthy conditions. Ideal for the transport of food particles, powders, granules, pellets, capsules, tablets and other bulk materials under vacuum, Volkmann vacuum conveyors can supply packaging lines, mixers, filling machines, tablet presses or any other kind of process equipment or vessel (containers, silos etc.) on demand. In addition, Volkmann’s interactive, enclosed transfer system has considerable advantages over conventional, old-fashioned, mechanical transport technologies --mmost notably in the transfer of traditionally difficult and sensitive powders. The cyclic vacuum plug flow conveying arrangement of the Multijector Conveyors avoids product separation or segregation. Volkmann conveyors are certified as explosion-proof by ATEX and require no additional equipment.
