Palamatic Process offers the vacuum transport system V-Flow® running on a dense phase principle.

The bulk material is vacuumed through a vacuum pump (electric or pneumatic) to a arrival cyclone (cyclo-filter) with tangential arrival (cylindrical).

The product is vacuum through a pneumatic conveyor gearbox installed at the point of withdrawal (no rotary valve) until the vacuum cyclone that is equipped with filters of small sizes to separate the air from the product. The vacuum cyclone is equipped with a butterfly valve (or other if the process requires) and a level probe allowing the emptying at regular intervals.

The rates obtained by this type of powder pumps are between 5 and 10,000 litres per hour with low energy consumption and extremely simple maintenance.

The other advantage of this powder system is the ease of the implementation of the weight control.

The vacuum cyclone may be located on loading cells allowing the vacuum and feeding of the conveyed product.

For incorporation of powder into liquids (powder skid), the powder pump solutions are often used because of their advantages:

  • Weighing of the bulk material
  • Simple system
  • Easy cleaning
  • Simple piping that can be modified in the future

The pneumatic conveyor gearbox can also be replaced with a vacuum pipe handled by the operator.

This type of pump for powder is generally associated with weighing. Indeed, the hopper of departure may be located on load cells and a purge valve is shutting off product flow ensuring management of the fall.

On the contrary, the cyclone of reception can be implemented on load cells in order to extract from different points the right amount of product needed in the preparation of the premix.

All these vacuum conveying systems can be mounted directly under sacks unloading stationsbig bags unloading unitscontainerssilos ...
