VAC-U-MAX specializes in the design and manufacture of sanitary pneumatic conveying components, multi-ingredient handling systems, UL-Listed controls, and support equipment for conveying, weighing and batching of powders and bulk materials in food processes. With a VAC-U-MAX ingredient handling system on site, bulk materials move gently and quickly from point to point, with nothing in the way to impede the efficiency of material movement. The primary technology for conveying is vacuum, and additionally, VAC-U-MAX provides positive pressure pneumatic systems, as well as aero-mechanical conveyors, flexible screw conveyors, bag dump stations and industrial vacuum cleaning systems for the safe handling of combustible dusts.
Founded in 1954, VAC-U-MAX is a pioneer in vacuum pneumatic conveying, having many firsts, including the first air-powered venturi power units, first to develop the technology of direct-loading of vacuum-tolerant process equipment, and first to design vertical-wall “Tube Hopper” bulk material receivers for the handling of powders and bulk ingredients. A UL-listed designer and manufacturer of control packages, VAC-U-MAX furnishes integrated control systems that provide coordination of material movement, batching, and processing, with tie in capabilities to existing control systems. With a customer-centric focus at every step of the process, VAC-U-MAX is committed to system design and bulk material handling solutions that satisfy the needs and expectations of customers around the world. VAC-U-MAX focuses strongly on continual improvement, with quality policies, strategies and quality systems communicated within our organization, creating customer value and quality equipment to process industries worldwide.
Test Lab Capabilities:
With over 3,000 square feet of available floor space, VAC-U-MAX has the ability to create a multitude of equipment configurations. Thousands of difficult to convey materials have been tested, adding to VAC-U-MAX application expertise. Material testing is of no charge to customers, with facility fully equipped to meet customer demands for vacuum conveying and aero-mechanical conveying testing. Additionally, testing can be done for applications requiring industrial vacuum cleaning. Whether the application calls for a bulk bag unloader, bag dump station, microprocessor controlled batch weighing systems, or precise batching of small quantities of multiple ingredients via recipe control, the VAC-U-MAX test lab meets and exceeds customer demands.
