For food, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals
At 44 pages, this brochure allows piab clients to order piFLOW equipment in bulk for their own use, and they are welcome to hand copies out to their own customers. But Customized Solutions is more than a catalogue of products: it also offers information on the principle on vacuum conveying, to help readers understand the purpose and function of this equipment. piab encourages customers to order the brochure by using part number 02.43.337.
piFLOW vacuum conveyors are recommended for material-handling applications in the food-processing, pharmaceutical, and chemical sectors and in additive manufacturing. Firing Industries carries all products in this family, including the piFLOW®t. This model conveys food slowly and carefully, with guided entry, controlled low speed, and no sharp edges for gentler overall handling. The piFLOW®t offers a gentle touch to the movement of fragile food items like candy, roasted coffee beans, whole nuts, and nutraceutical tablets.
Nicknamed the Changeover Champion, the piFLOW®p SMART is a self-optimizing unit built for manufacturers that handle various materials and/or have processes necessitating frequent batch changes. This saves significant time and cost in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries. The vacuum technology of the piFLOW®p SMART allows users to change materials six times more quickly – so changes that take an hour with a conventional vacuum conveyor now take only ten minutes.
Finally, the piFLOW®am conveyor is designed to convey powder with bulk density of more than 500 cubic pounds with a small footprint and a high throughput. This model is perfect for additive manufacturing, a sector in which tight spaces must make room for large equipment.
