Vacuumslat bandconveyor


This conveyor is designed to move, via a slat chain, empty containers in vertical position standing on their bases, between unscrambler and filler.

Operating Principle

The slat band conveyor is provided with a vacuum system in order to improve the stability of the empty bottles, which are conveyed by means of a pierced slat chain in communication with the body interior. The body case, completely closed, is linked through a system of mouths and pipes to an air suction fan that creates a depression inside the conveyor body itself, ensuring the bottles adherence to the chain along the whole route. The chain’s boring is carried out specifically, according to the type of container to be handled. The lateral guides are adjustable in width, to adapt to the different bottles formats to be handled. The vacuum slat band conveyor is particularly recommended in presence of a linear orientator since it prevents the container from escaping the orientating pincer and, keeping it attached to the chain, it enables a prompt restart, guaranteeing the system’s regularity and efficiency.
Accessory devices such as dividers, combiners and side-by-side transfers are available, for the purpose of obtaining the required distribution to downstream machines. The air suction unit can be managed via inverter to diversify the vacuum level depending on necessities: it is possible, for instance, to set up different values according to the various sizes to be handled or create areas with lower vacuum level, as in the accumulation segments, in order to reduce consumptions and noise.
