Line Vac Improves Pharmaceutical Application

A 316 Stainless Steel Line Vac is used by a pharmaceutical

company to convey pills and tablets to a packaging station.

Our standard stainless steel models (Type 303) offer good corrosion resistance and are ideal for food service, abrasive or corrosive applications. For critical applications including certain foods and pharmaceutical products, Type 316 stainless steel models provide excellent corrosion resistance.

For tablet transfers Line Vac of higher dia may be used

One Of Customer's Application:
This application is for a pressed powder tablet operation. The tablet press mold has a small hole in it which pulls a vacuum on the formed tablet to keep it in place and remove any leftover powder from the mold.
A vacuum generator that is used to hold the tablet in place had low vacuum flow and did not always remove the residual powder from the tablet press. This resulted in poor quality tablets with pitting on the tablets.
An EXAIR Line Vac model #6058, our smallest Line Vac product, used with 3/8? inside diameter hose provided a boost to the vacuum flow and recovered any residual powder from the tablet press. The powder moved easily through the Line Vac hose and dumped into the central vacuum recovery system. The quality issues were eliminated.
