The vacuum conveyor takes solids from a pickup point and releases them into a receiving vessel or a piece of equipment in batches. Piab’s Batch Volume Optimization features a level sensor. Once the conveyor is filled up by each cycle, the sensor automatically triggers the release process. This way, operators can set the conveyor up quickly, and the automatic level sensing adds an extra layer of safety, which protects the equipment from unplanned maintenance.
