IEDCO says its Volkmann vacuum conveyor replaces the manual method of charging powders to reactors, mix tanks and presses. The unit clamps to a sanitary ferrule on the mix tank or press feed hopper and is plugged into a 1⁄2-in. compressed air line before use. Powder can be vacuum transferred from drums, bulk bags, silos, IBCs or other containers through a sanitary vacuum feed nozzle or adapter, and discharged into the tank through the sanitary butterfly valve on the conveyor.
