Read more on page 6 Considerations When Designing a Pneumatic Transfer System Several factors can influence conveying system design. The more information gathered about these factors allow for a more complete and accurate recom- mendation in system design.

It incorporates a self-draining trough so the unit can be washed in place. A built-in drain with external connection handles wash fluid disposal. Combined with the feeder's USDA- and FDA-approved materials of construction, as well as quick- disassembly features, the unit is ideal for food processors or anywhere that frequent, thorough cleaning is required. The Accufeed uses molded composite components and a modular design to reduce cost and delivery time.

Integrated into Ceia or Lock brand metal detectors, Auto-Check "de-manualizes" the metal detector challenge process by eliminating the need for operators to put test tablets one by one through the metal detector. The metal detector automatically shuts down the deduster and tablet press should the challenge test fail. For combined deduster/metal detector units with containment, utiliz- ing Auto-Check makes dedicated openings for test tablet introduction unnecessary, eliminating the risk of containment breaches.
