Special advantages:

The low product speed achieves a dense conveying phase with very little product segregation. This also means the conveyed product is handled very gently, with very little attrition, and therefore extremely low wear rates within the conveying pipes. It is easy to engineer such a system with many different product feeding points. Due to the low air and energy consumptions this system is very efficient, especially advantageous if conditioned (i.e. cooled / dried) air is required for conveying the product.

Preferred applications:

The AZO®VacuumPlus - dense phase conveying system is a new conveying system, intelligently combining the advantages of pressure and vacuum systems. Whenever fragile and/or temperature sensitive bulk materials need to be gently conveyed without segregation, this new materials handling technology is the solution – especially for applications with medium throughputs and conveying distances of up to 100 m.

System description
This conveying technology is basically separated into two different versions; i) discontinuous operation, and ii) continuous operation. The decision of which version should be used is dependant upon the nature of the manufacturing process (either before or after the conveying stage).
For instance, if the conveying system is feeding a batching process, a discontinuous system is recommended. If the manufacturing process is continuous, then a continuous AZO®VacuumPlus system is probably more appropriate.

AZO®VacuumPlus system, discontinuous
The product pickup point is equipped with a secondary air intake. Several additional air intake ports are also installed along the conveying pipe up to the receiver. The number and position of the air intake points is dictated by several parameters such as the nature of the product itself, the required throughput, pipe routing and other conditions. The reception point or receiver of the discontinuous AZO® VacuumPlus system is equipped with a butterfly outlet valve. The conveyed product discharges completely into the downstream process after each conveying cycle. This system should be used for batching processes.

AZO®VacuumPlus system, continuous
This conveying system consists of a product pickup device, a conveying line with air intake ports and a receiver equipped with a rotary valve. Vacuum pumps, suitable for high negative pressure, are used for generating the required vacuum. Convenient controls enable trouble-free operation of the conveying cycle.
