Volkmann, Inc. expands its U.S. headquarters in Bristol, PA to include a 750-square-foot dedicated test facility. The laboratory incorporates a range of the company’s VS Series of vacuum conveyors, including the 200, 250, 350 and 450 receiver models, as well as a variety of feed hoppers and the company’s RNT rip and tip hopper. Two 150 foot runs of 1 ½” and 2 ½” conveying lines are available to simulate real world applications in product transfer, and a 20 foot vertical lift can be added where necessary.

The VS series can simulate conveying conditions for powders, granules, particles, tablets and capsules for customers in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and coatings industries. A PPCVS 170 unit, built specifically for the pharmaceutical industry with a one-piece, gap free design and polished stainless steel surface, is also available and can be used to test product when necessary. 

The test lab also features a conference area and a separate static display of all Volkmann conveyors. Volkmann offers these complimentary application-related tests in relation to proposals for system solutions to customers and potential customers.
