As it becomes ever important to ensure the ingredients are conveyed in a controlled manner to dosing and mixing equipment,the autotuning feature of the new piFLOW® SMART vacuum conveyor automizes the process of powder and bulk conveying. Based on its renowned COAX® ejector technology, the piFLOW® SMART is pre-programmed with advanced algrorithms to eliminate complex manual timer settings and allows continuous adaptive automatic fine tuning of the conveying process as well as recipe handling. Equipped with advanced sensor technology, it optimizes and increases throughput up to 50% higher compared to conventional conveyor systems. Smart electrical control data collection and analysis for overall process optimization, and real-time adjustment become part of the daily routine. In addition to its Industry 4.0 related features, the new piFLOW®SMART vacuum conveyor is equipped with further elements that allow easier and safer product handling. They are among others, automatic filter cleaning, multiple filter shock, material safety blockage function and antistatic filters and seals upon request. For usage in the pharmaceutical and food industries all material in contact with the conveyed product fulfil the requirements of FDA and EC No. 1935/2004 and designed according to USDA guidelines. Piab’s experts are available at both shows – Hannover Fair and Powtech – to provide further insights and discuss the benefits of how the new piFLOW® SMART can bring to every specific customer application. Additionally, at Hannover Fair, where Sweden is this year’s partner country, the piFLOW®p is demonstrated as part of an integrated industrial additive manufacturing process at the Sweden CoLab booth in Hall 27.
