Series 2400 Vacuum Receivers Overview

Series 2400 Powder and Pellet Receivers provide high capacity sequencing systems for powder, pellet, regrind and granular materials.

Various Series 2400 Powder and Pellet receiver models are available in carbon steel (painted), stainless steel or aluminum. Each receiver has a stainless check valve to allow multiple receivers to draw material from a common conveying line. All models feature quick connect clamps for easy cleaning and filter maintenance.

Use the chart below to find the pellet or powder conveyor closest to the approximate receiving volume and conveying rate your application requires.

P-Series Vacuum Receivers Overview

The P-Series Vacuum Receivers provide solutions for difficult conveying applications, with a sanitary design for food and pharmaceutical industries.

P-Series Vacuum Receivers feature steep cone angles to ensure excellent discharge and band clamps for quick disassembly. The polyester cartridge filter is equipped with automatic reverse jet pulsing for thorough cleaning.

The P-Series Vacuum Receivers are used in a variety of challenging material handling applications. In chemical applications, P-Series Vacuum Receivers are used for vessel loading, loss-in-weight feeder refill and reactor loading. In food, these vacuum receivers are ideal for fragile product handling, mixer loading and loss-in-weight feeder refill. For pharmaceutical application, P-Series Vacuum Receivers are employed for tablet conveying, loss-in-weight feeder refill and tablet press and blender loading.
