piFLOW®f - food grade vacuum conveying

The piFLOW®f is our most popular vacuum conveyor in the food industry. It replaces manual handling or mechanical conveyors such as screw conveyors or bucket elevators to ensure a safer, ergonomic, dust-free working environment in food manufacturing facilities. Typical materials conveyed include a wide variety of powders and granules, including, but not limited to salt, flour, granulated or icing sugar, coffee (powder or whole beans), tea, protein powder or other functional food, oats, paprika powder, cocoa, dried goods (e.g. pasta), lentils, rice, seeds (hemp, peanuts, cashew, etc...), spices, bread crumbs, cheese powder, rice crisps, chickpeas, birdseed, pet food, fish oil capsules, dried fruits, and more. Piab has conducted a significant number of tests related to different food applications. The test results are a part of the Piab knowledge base, therefore, feasibility checks are provided within an extremely low timeframe in case of most requests. The piFLOW®f range consists of models with 6, 8, 14, and 28 l [0.21, 0.28, 0.49, 0.99 ft³] batch volumes, which can convey up to 7.5 tons/h [15 000 lbs/h]. They are designed with a stainless-steel body (ASTM 304L). All parts which are in contact with the conveyed materials (the conveyor body and sealings) are compliant with FDA, EC No. 1935/2004, and EC No. 10/2011. ATEX Dust certification is available, depending on the configuration. This range is available with two automation levels. The standard version is a straightforward, reliable vacuum conveyor. In contrast, the BVO or Batch Volume Optimisation version features a level sensor to facilitate batch volume setup, leading to a shorter amount of conveyor setup at material changeovers, and secure a higher level of operation safety by reducing the possibility of human error.
