The new Low Rate Vacuum (LRV) Receiver from Schenck Process (Kansas City, MO) is an NFPA compliant, 1.8 ft³ (50L) capacity vacuum conveying system that offers a cleaner operating environment for handling both raw materials and finished products. It can be easily integrated into a wide range of production processes by incorporating the world leading technologies of Schenck Process pneumatic conveying with feeders, bulk bag unloaders, bag dump stations, and drum dumpers. The LRV can also be integrated in extruder lines, small injection, blow molding and film producing processes as well as handling minor additives for mixing and PVC blending towers. By incorporating the LRV, a highly accurate and controlled flow of materials is achieved for these applications. Additionally:
- The LRV is designed in both industrial and hygienic models.
- Each is equipped with an 8” outlet and can convey materials up to 5,000 pounds per hour and provide contamination free transfer of materials.
- The LRV is equipped with three T-bolts that secures the top lid in place. Each bolt can be loosened by hand providing access to the filters, tubesheet and hopper for easy servicing and cleaning.
- Hygienic models of the LRV have the 3-A RPSCQC designation for (39-01) Pneumatic Conveyors for Dry Products and have interior and exterior finishes that meet 3-A sanitary requirements.
