With the addition of the new larger sizes, it would allow for greater speeds to handle difficult- to-move powders and granules over a greater distance. The piPremium pump, together with the piFlow p vacuum conveyor is ideal for meet- ing the high demand from the food and pharma industries. Users benefit from the latest in vacuum technology from Coax's ejector efficient design that saves on compressed air energy costs. The working environment is improved with a lower noise level from an integrated silencer. Uptime is increased with a maintenance- friendly design of less internal parts, one connection point. Its hygienic aspects provide for easy dismounting of parts and cleaning. Piab, Hingham, MA 800-321-7422 www.piab.com Bulk Bag Conditioning System Booth 3917 - Discharging bulk bags containing material that has solidi- fied, hardened, or agglomerated can cause serious operational bottlenecks. Conditioning and emptying bulk bags can be dangerous if the proper equip- ment is not utilized. This patented system utilizes hydraulically actuated, twin heavy wall tubular steel pivoting conditioning arms. Each conditioning arm features "v-shaped" tubular steel breaker profiles that safely and ef- ficiently return solidified materials to a free-flowing state. A rotary lift table positions the bulk bag for complete material conditioning on all sides, as well as the top and bottom. The unit features an ultra-compact footprint and machine guarding for operator safety.
