piFLOW®p - Premium Conveyor
This is a conveyor
when a premium technology is needed, e.g. in the food and pharmaceutical
industry. It also makes sense when there is a large demand on high throughput
performance with a small foot print. The piFLOW®p offers a wide capacity range –
from 0.07 to 2 cubic feet batch volume.
piFLOW®f - Food Grade Conveyor
This is a conveyor
widely used in the industry where food grade quality is a demand. This conveyor
is often used as an alternative to mechanical conveyors when there is a
requirement for dust free conveying or low maintenance. Capacity up to 4 tons/h.
piFLOW®i - Industrial Conveyor
This is a conveyor widely
used in the general industry and sometimes in the chemical industry. It has a
high throughput performance as well as a small foot print. Capacity up to 4
Since there are
special safety requirements for equipment and health protection for workers in
potentially explosive atmospheres the EU has created legislation for this called
the ATEX directives. (ATEX is an abbreviation for Atmosphere Explosible).
vacuum conveyor is reliable and requires a minimum of maintenance. It is,
however, necessary to regularly change some of the parts to maintain maximum

Vacuum is generated by a compressed air-driven Piab vacuum pump. The filters are
automatically cleaned. The fluidization ensures the discharge of the material.
