Vac-U-Max: Pneumatic Conveying System
March 1, 2001
This company has developed an innovative way of handling potassium permanganate, a chemical widely used in industrial water treatment facilities. A pneumatic conveying system eliminates workers from manually scooping and lifting the material into the existing treatment process. A quiet but powerful regenerative blower creates vacuum for this self-contained pneumatic conveying system. A large, leaf-type filter provides the necessary filtration area to keep the system operating at peak performance, and an electric filter shake mechanism keeps filters clean for optimum efficiency.
