Safely Conveying Powder & Granules
Fri, 03/08/2013 - 9:40am
Volkmann’s ATEX-approved INEX vacuum conveying system takes vacuum transfer of dry or wet powder and granules into potentially hazardous conditions to a new level. The company says that this solution is characterized by:
- By using a sophisticated, patent-pending nitrogen purging function, INEX reduces oxygen content within the unloaded batch to below 7% (or lower when required), maintaining the material’s inert safety while providing dust-free transport.
- The INEX features a closed station, which can be flushed from within by sucking in the washing liquid or through WIP/CIP.
- Standard lightweight and pressure-rated systems are available with INEX functionality.
