Pneumatic Conveying Batch Weigh Systems

VAC-U-MAX combines modern computerized technology with innovative mechanical and pneumatic design to produce ingredient handling systems that not only free operators of physical effort but also perform sophisticated pneumatic conveying operations with little human assistance.

Each system we design is custom engineered for the application parameters provided by the customer, to ensure that the system will perform to exact requirements.

The system conveys three different ingredients from drums to the weigh hopper and automatically batches them to precise weights, in various preprogrammed formulations. They are then automatically discharged into a surge hopper and adapter spout, which can be rotated to load any of three mixing tanks. A micro-processor-based control panel provides the flexibility to add, change or delete formulations as required.


  • Reliable consistency all the time.
  • Intelligent ingredient management.
  • Totally enclosed dust-free operation.
  • Automatic batch counting and weighing of material.
  • Computerized keyboard or touch screen entry of all functions: set points, feed rates, calibration, etc.
  • Operator initiated cycling of system with alternate tie into computer control for programmed discharging.
  • Control system can be located in remote area of plant away from production machinery.
  • System can be configured to control a wide range of batch weighing receivers and other process equipment.
  • Computer and printer interface to report a variety of functions from date, operator ID, batch weight, formulation, sequence number, and much more.
  • Stored Recipes

As a U.L. listed builder and supplier of electrical control panels and PCL’s, VAC-U-MAX has the experience and expertise, which allows us to meet your process requirements.

Accurate sophisticated, economical, yet simple to operate systems, put you in control of the process.

Multi-Ingredient handling and weighing in conjunction with pneumatic conveying is an increasingly common requirement in today’s marketplace.

At VAC-U-MAX, we have redefined the process for ingredient weighing while pneumatically conveying multiple products throughout a plant.

Engineered Material Management Experience VAC-U-MAX multi-Ingredient handling and weighing systems offer “high-tech” state-of the art Programmable Logic Controllers, which accurately and reliably measure and process weight signals.

Utilizing state-of-the art controls technology, VAC-U-MAX engineers are able to provide customers with automatic and accurate control of material needed for any type weigh and convey operation. Whether a formulation calls for 2 lbs. of Sugar or 2,000 Ibs, being fed into a mixer, our ingredient handling weigh systems are easy to operate and control.

The art of ‘Batch Weighing” as coined by VAC-U-MAX nearly forty years ago, has become synonymous in the world of material handling. Only VAC-U-MAX has redefined the technology for batch weighing, using Loss-in-Weight and Gain-in-Weight methods for accurate material transfer.
