Low-profile models in Volkmann’s pneumatic pharmaceutical conveyor series (PPCVS) feature a low-profile vacuum pump and reverse-jet shock tank to convey tablets and capsules in restricted height areas. All Volkmann PPCVS units feature a one-piece, gap-free design with a smooth, polished stainless-steel surface. A modular, quick-release, cGMP design allows for no-tools cleaning. The units feature a patented QX filter system with a unique connection to the filter plate. In this design, a double seal replaces the commonly used felt seal or O-ring seal and ensures complete isolation of the process down to 0.3 micron.
