Piab, Hingham, Mass., developed piFLOW conveyors, designed to handle everything from bulk powders and granules to delicate tablets for the baking industry.

Offering low noise and contained conveying, ATEX certification, compliance with FDA and EU 1935/2004 regulations, as well as fulfilling current Good Manufacturing Practice, the conveyors ensure a safe working environment and problem-free, highly productive operations.

Featuring a small footprint with flexible routing of pipelines and a hygienic design makes them easy to clean and maintain, enabling quick changeover and contributing to greater process uptime.

piFLOW comes in three models—piFLOWf, which serves the basic food industry; piFLOWp, which targets premium applications; and piFLOWt, which handles tablets and other fragile products.

A comprehensive range of accessories include suction pipes that provide a lightweight and ergonomically correct solution for generally free flowing or granular materials, feed nozzles for more challenging materials that allow the air intake to be adjusted for optimum mixture of conveyed material and aspirated air and a dedicated feed pipe.

Also available is a bag dump station with a special dust collector and an internal volume of 100 liters that can handle four small bags simultaneously.
