Uni-Vac (V-20)


Vacuum Conveying System

The Uni-Vac vacuum conveying system from Hanningfield Process Systems provides a safe, practical and dust-free method of conveying powder, granules and flakes without waste.

The Uni-Vac V-20 is a Hanningfield vacuum conveyor with a capacity of 20 litres and a throughput of up to 1200 kgs/hr.

 Vacuum conveying provides cost-effective automation that improves production, reduces contamination and creates a clean and safer working environment. Powder spillage, airborne dust and the common problems associated with manual feeding are eliminated.

The conveyor is designed for applications with typical industry requirements.  The handling of heavy drums, kegs, bags, etc. are all eliminated by using a Uni-Vac system.

Conveying allows a process to benefit from improved productivity and a safer, more hygienic working environment.  Vacuum transfer is the perfect solution for powder process systems in the pharmaceutical, food, chemical and allied industries.  Through conveying, a process can take advantage of improved output and a cleaner, safer working environment.

The Uni-Vac V-20 is the Hanningfield  vacuum conveyor for applications where the requirements are fairly typical in terms of both throughput and bulk density.  The capacity of the hopper is 20 litres and the throughput is up to 1200 kgs/hr. 

The Hanningfield Uni-Vac offers many advantages, such as an easy clean design; the hopper can be completely dismantled without the need for tools.  The system also boasts remote controls, a hygienic crevice free design and design flexibility.

The Uni-Vac is easy to use, clean and maintain. It improves production, reduces manual handling and operator fatigue.  The conveyors are manufactured from 304 or 316 stainless steel and can be either static or mobile dependent upon preference.
All internal surfaces are crack and crevice free, the surface finish is to customer requirements.  All connections are "quick-release" type, enabling easy dismantling and access to internal parts.
The Uni-Vac is designed and manufactured by Hanningfield Process Systems at their UK Headquarters.

What is Vacuum Powder Conveying?

Pneumatic-Powder-Conveying-1bVacuum Conveying, also known as Pneumatic Powder Conveying, is a method of transferring powder in a fully contained and sterile manner.  Powder can be automatically transported upstream or downstream via smooth-bore pipe work.  This simple automation makes pneumatic conveying perfect for the secure transfer of bulk materials in the pharmaceutical industry.

Benefits of Vacuum Conveying in Pharmaceutical Processing

Vacuum conveying is an extremely hygienic and efficient method of transferring powders.  This makes it perfect for the pharmaceutical industry as it helps improve safety, whilst also increasing productivity.  Pneumatic powder conveying eliminates the need for the manual handling of hazardous powders, whilst also being able to charge up to 4,000 kgs/hr (8,800 lbs) to a downstream process.

For example, powder can be sucked directly from an IBC, into the conveyor, and then transferred from the conveyor to the required destination, such as a tablet press, cone mill or filling machine.  In this regard the conveyor acts as a temporary storage container, holding the process material until it is ready to be dumped or loaded into the process machine.  This allows the process of pneumatic powder conveying to be carefully controlled, as the throughput can be moderated in accordance with each customer’s individual requirements.

Vacuum Conveying: Conclusions

The Vacuum (pneumatic) transfer of powder is perfectly suited to the pharmaceutical industry.  The ability to quickly and safely control the movement of powder makes powder conveying a best practice solution.  Hanningfield have over 20 years experience with pneumatic powder conveying in the pharmaceutical industry, and would be please to share this knowledge to help improve your process.
