Vacuum conveyors are ideal for conveying powders, granules, pellets, and flake type materials. Their simple construction makes them easy to operate, easy to install and are arguably the cleanest design of all pneumatic conveying solutions. This is why Vacuum Conveying is often a first-choice conveyor for foods, dairy or pharma industries. That said, vacuum conveying is used to great effect in many other industries.

Vacuum Conveyors are typically designed to transfer material to one destination but it is possible to vacuum from multiple input points. For example,  conveyor located on a mixer can draw ingredients from a sack tip station, a bulk bag unloader or a silo. The Vacuum receiver at the destination is fitted with a filter system to separate the product and the air. The filter is often a self-cleaning unit with quick and easy access for  maintenance. The fact that the conveyor operates under negative pressure, helps to meet high levels of hygiene in the workplace, minimising the risk of dust release and exposure to operator.  The “leaking inwards” aspect of vacuum conveying makes it very suitable for  handling toxic or combustible dusts. An air source such as a venturi or electric blower provides the conveying motive air. Distances conveyed vary from 3 meters "up and in" to 40 meters along a small bore pipeline which is great for routing through a congested plant.
