To meet the demands of the food industry, RGS offers a range of alternatives in the field of industrial suction and pneumatic conveying.
What is pneumatic conveyor?
In industrial applications it is increasingly necessary to transport granular or powder materials in fluid suspension through numerous stages of the production process.
In this regard, RGS has been developing innovative pneumatic transport solutions for all industrial realities for over 20 years.
Pneumatic conveyors transfer solid powdered or granular substances into pipes, usually circular, by means of a stream of air of adequate speed.
The fundamental distinction between the various types of pneumatic conveyor derives from the way in which the motion of the material is realized: by means of a current of air in depression (in aspiration) or pressure (in thrust).
The purpose of a pneumatic conveying system is to transfer materials from one or more points to a final destination or to a further production process; among these we can find the processes of mixing, granulation, concentration, processing and packaging.
How does pneumatic conveyor work?
Pneumatic conveyor is a system widely used in industry to transfer materials at different points through closed pipelines.
Material transfer is the combination of a vacuum difference and the flow of air or gas within the pipes.
Depending on the needs, a different gas can be used, such as nitrogen, which being inert lends itself to the transport of potentially explosive materials, or for products of easy oxidation.
- SMALL FOOT PRINT
In other words, this term emphasizes a considerable advantage of the RGS pneumatic transport systems compared to the classic mechanical transports, that is, the reduction of the overall dimensions with consequent increase of the installation flexibility.
- DUST FREE
The basic idea is to maintain high standards of cleanliness and hygiene in all production departments, in this regard, the use of a closed-circuit pneumatic transport system using vacuum is the best solution for the elimination of annoying dust emission points.
All our systems can also be ATEX certified.
- FOOD GRADE
RGS conveyors and pneumatic transfer systems are widely used in the food industry where high quality standards must be met. Thanks to our long experience in this field we are able to produce a wide range of conveyors and systems, standard or customized, all in accordance with the regulations concerning materials and articles intended to come into contact with food products: 1935/2004, 2026/2006 GMP, as well as the US FDA regulations.
- THINK SAFE, WORK SAFE, WORK EASY
The ease of use, installation and maintenance are the pillars of a safe production reality in which operators can carry out all the activities in the simplest way. Our conveyors are designed with unique features to make them easy to use, install and maintain. You can easily access the filters for inspection or change.
The ease of disassembly allows you to remove filters without the use of tools, reducing the time needed to perform ordinary maintenance.
