World-leading manufacturer of ceramic membrane separation techniques, Pall Exekia, wanted a less laborious, safer and more efficient transfer system for alumina powder. The company had been manually hoisting 25kg bags of powder up 7m to a hopper.
Pall Exekia replaced its manual material handling processes with an automated pneumatic conveying solution from Piab.
Pall Exekia has experienced a significant reduction in the amount of time required to handle the heavy bags of alumina. Additionally, the vacuum conveying solution has alleviated physical strain on employees, which has contributed to a considerable improvement in work-station safety. Because the conveyor features filter design that traps particles, the risk of dust or contamination in the manufacturing facility is prevented.
