Vacuum Conveyors Feature Receiver-Mounted EPV

Oct. 8, 2012
Unit can be coupled to any electrically driven pump

Volkmann will showcase new variants of its VS series of vacuum conveyors featuring electric pump options at Pack EXPO 2012 Oct. 28-31. The conveyors can be viewed at Booth #E-7658 at McCormick Place in Chicago. These new pump options mount a purpose-designed electric switch box assembly (EPV) directly on the receiver.

 Because the EPV includes a non-return valve and vacuum relief valve as standard, the unit can be coupled to any electrically driven vacuum pump assembly, providing greater flexibility for end users. Volkmann will also display a new PLC-based controller, the QX “quick exchange” patented filter system, and a full range of Multijector compressed air driven working conveyors.
