Volkmann USA designs and manufactures hygienic, explosion-proof pneumatic vacuum conveying systems to safely transfer powders, pellets, granules, tablets, and other bulk materials from one point in a process to another point while safeguarding particle integrity and mixture homogeneity. Proven worldwide in transferring foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and more, these automated conveyors feature patented vacuum technology that eliminates the potential for ignition even when transferring ignitable, fine particles and combustible dusts. By operating entirely pneumatically without electricity, without rotating parts, without generating heat, and with proper electrostatic grounding, our conveying systems earned the ATEX certification as suitable for safe installation in all dust explosion areas.
Our conveying systems can be quickly disassembled without tools for easy access to the interior, complete cleaning and inspection. Our skilled, experienced engineering team custom-designs the powder transfer conveyors for sanitary, cleanroom, hazardous, non-regulated, and any type of process.
For additive manufacturing and 3D printing, our PowTReX system automatically captures excess metal material, screens, and recovers it for reuse. The fully enclosed process prevents material contamination and safeguards workers from contact with potentially hazardous powders.
Volkmann also designs and manufactures the bulk material handling equipment typically specified when conveying dry materials. Bulk bag unloading stations, bag dump stations, lump breakers, and accessories are all available, custom-engineered.
Serving North America from our Bristol, PA headquarters just off I-95, we offer material testing on fully operating pneumatic conveying systems in a dedicated test laboratory. The family-owned, global organization is headed by second generation CEO Thilo Volkmann. Volkmann operates subsidiaries in Great Britain, USA, France and the Netherlands with more than 100 employees worldwide.
