Vacuum transport has been used for various products for decades. Generally with products in bulk, where the capacity is important and damaging plays no role. Continuous transport with high air speeds is the norm.
To comply with this demand, compact vacuum units have been developed, which can easily be placed above a machine. This is also possible on a dosing container, which in turn can be placed above the supply to the machines.
The transport of the seeds and pellets will take place at a low air speed, where the buffer is continuously complemented. This naturally takes place without producing damages.
A proximity sensor in the funnel or container activates the vacuum unit to be able to maintain enough buffer.
On the left: Example of a plateau with funnels above the machines. On the right: There are several tubes at the plateau where the vacuum units can be connected. The tubes can suck the seed from every working area.
