In case it is necessary to move empty containers, particularly unstable or at very high speeds, it is possible to equip the chain conveyor with a suction system in order to increase the stability of the containers and the operation efficiency.
The vacuum conveyors find wide application in all those fields where it is necessary to transport light products that need to be well fixed by vacuum on the belt during transport.
It takes place via large corrugated pipes from the suction unit to a galvanized steel manifold (in stainless steel on request) placed under the conveyor.
The suction vents positioned on the side of the conveyor are connected to the vacuum manifold by reinforced plastic pipes. To obtain the depression of the containers on the conveyor, plastic chains with holes are used.
