Vacuum Conveying for Pharma Industry

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are implementing vacuum conveying technologies to deliver drugs to consumers faster, safer, and more economically. Vacuum technology provides a safer transfer of dry bulk materials and allows pharmaceutical processors to meet tight industry standards for sanitation and environmental safety.

Tiermax Pneumatic Vacuum Conveyors and material handling solutions are used throughout the pharmaceutical industry for feeding and transferring materials to and from processes such as refilling bins, initial weighing, blending, screening, granulating, compacting, and compressing.

Dust containment is a principal reason that manufacturers add vacuum conveyors to production lines. Feeders that are manually dumped generate small dust clouds with each scoop, resulting in fugitive dust-particulate matter (PM), which is defined as any solid or liquid that is moved by the wind or by humans.

Features and Benefits

  • Vacuum conveying systems designed specifically for direct charge loading can efficiently load equipment that is capable of withstanding a vacuum
  • Dust containment is a principal reason that manufacturers add vacuum conveyors to production lines.
  • The pneumatic conveyor allows transferring the same material from one point to another using the vacuum as a driving force.
  • The completely closed system allows eliminating product dispersions during transport, eliminating the risk of contamination.
  • The completely closed system allows eliminating product dispersions during transport, eliminating the risk of contamination.

Feeding & Dosing System

Dosing accuracy has become an important topic because of the need to comply with today’s high quality standards in pharma production. Dosing influences the homogeneity of the mix which in turn determines quality parameters of the products. The degree of homogeneity that can be achieved with liquid and solid additives depends partly on the absolute amount dosed.

Tiermax high accurate feeders are specially designed for pharma ingredients to dose the raw materials (loss in weight, volumetric) or liquids (loss in weight).
