Volkmann recently introduced its No-Tip Unloader vacuum conveyor. The conveyor was developed to eliminate the material flow issues involved when transferring powders, granules, pellets, capsules, tablets and other bulk materials through conventional unloading methods requiring tipping of the raw material drum, bin or IBC. When combined with the Volkmann vacuum conveyor, the system offers an interactive, enclosed transfer system with considerable advantages over conventional, old-fashioned, mechanical transport technologies. It features:
- A lifting column equipped with three product sensors for product recognition.
- Control logic designed to allow handling of different materials without a new set-up.
