The piFLOW®p vacuum conveyor by piab

piab is the brand name that industry trusts for unmatched vacuum-conveying technology, available in Canada via Firing Industries Ltd. The manufacturer has extensive experience in material handling in the food-processing, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries – for which it highly recommends its piFLOW®p series of conveyors. Another field in which these devices come in handy is additive manufacturing. piab piFLOW®p vacuum conveyors are perfect for additive applications, particularly safe handling of hazardous materials and easy transfer of material to and from printers.

Enclosed system boosts user safety

Vacuum-conveying technology by piab is also ideal for filling printers with metal powder, cleaning or reclaiming excess materials from printers following production, and emptying or filling metal powder to and from adjacent equipment like powder containers or sieves. The piFLOW®p can handle high-density materials and transfer them reliably and quickly.

Another benefit of this series is the enclosed system, which increases user safety with protection from hazardous materials. It also protects sensitive, often reactive powder from contact with unwanted matter. While powder handling is usually a manual process, vacuum-conveying technology automates it. The piFLOW®p also allows simple material changeover, and it is easy to clean and maintain.

The piFLOW®p series is a great choice for additive manufacturing due to its ATEX certification and because it comes with a wide variety of accessories and possible configurations to comply with the standards of this unique industry. piab recommends two specific configurations on a three-litre piFLOW®p device for use in this sector: a 200 pump, PLR02 filter, and 32-millimetre conveying line; or a 400 pumps, PLR04 filter, and 32- or 38-millimetre conveying line. Recommended accessories include a feed nozzle, a feed adapter, and a module to fit the receiver.

The piab lineup also includes many solutions for inert gas applications, compact conveyors, and other suitable accessories for its existing products. Firing Industries is the supplier to turn to for all of the piab solutions that are necessary to make processing applications as fast, efficient, and profitable as possible, including those in the additive industry.
