ConvyMate – Central Vacuum Conveying System

Vacuum conveying system with centralized vacuum source, as an alternative to single loaders, automatically feeds more than one process machine, thus efficiently and practically solving the problems involved in distributing raw materials.

  • Manages up to 8 vacuum pumps and 64 receivers contemporaneously.
  • Association between the receivers and the pumps can be freely set through configuration.
  • All receivers connected to the same pump are served in turn, according to an automatically assigned priority sequence.
  • Each receiver has a microprocessor in serial communication with the others and with the master controller.
  • The loading cycle can be managed both by time or volume (level sensor).
  • The touch screen provides an intuitive user interface for easy system management.
  • Flashing alarm lamp.
  • Alarm messages and diagnostics in plain text.
  • Reduced installation costs.
  • For future expansion, further receivers can be simply connected to the existing network system.
  • Wiring with power and serial communication cables for serial connection of receivers and master controller.
  • Run/Stop status.
  • Conveying time out/Conveying time (for loaders without volume-fill sensor).
  • Station priority level.
  • Purge time.
  • Receiver selection.
  • Pump switch-off time.
  • Alarms:
    • – Pump thermal cut-out.
    • – Conveying time-out.
    • – No convey.
    • – Communication error.
  • Operates simultaneously up to 8 vacuum pumps and up to 64 receivers assigned to any combination of pumps
  • A vacuum manifold connects receivers to the assigned vacuum unit that supplies all receivers, one at a time, in a demand sequence operated by a central control
  • All receivers connected to the same pump are served in turn, according to an automatically assigned priority sequenc

Easy-to-use operator interface for programming the following functions:

  • Run/Stop status
  • Conveying time out / Conveying time (for loaders without volume-fill sensor)
  • Station priority level
  • Purge time
  • Vacuum surge selection
  • Pump switch-off time
  • Flashing warning lamp: pump overload, conveying time-out, no convey, communication error
  • Alarm messages and diagnostics in plain text
  • Suction nozzle.
  • Five diameter sizes available.
  • Induced air adjustment.
  • Double tube suction nozzles available.
  • Volume-fill sensor eliminates the need for setting fill times. The receiver fills until the specified volume is reached, maximizing filling and conveying efficiency.
  • Wide discharge outlet for rapid material evacuation without bridging. Rubber gaskets ensure perfect seal of the flapper valve during the suction phase, also in the presence of residual material.
  • Hinged flapper valve with integral limit switch, insensitive to dust.
  • Silos suction box with multiple outlets.
  • Automatic filter cleaning for each loading sequence, with blast of compressed air from the mains, accumulated in the lid built-in tank.
  • Flexible anti-static PUP hose.
  • Silo suction box.
