El uso de sopladores de desplazamiento positivo en el transporte neumático proporciona una transferencia eficiente de material seco a granel desde un punto hacia otro a diferentes presiones y niveles de vacío.

Both MD Pneumatics™ blowers and Kinney vacuum pumps serve many applications within the Food & Beverage market. These typical applications include: milking, deaeration, evaporation, freeze drying, pneumatic conveying, vacuum stuffers, bottle filling, vacuum packaging, drying, deodorization, evisceration, extraction, distillation, and sterilization.

There are several vacuum applications found within meat processing facilities.  Most commonly you will find rotary vane vacuum pumps and liquid ring vacuum pumps in use.

Kinney vacuum pumps can be found in many meat processing applications including stuffing/filling, packaging, mixing, bowl cutter, and tumbler/massager.  The KVA rotary vane vacuum pump works in multiple processes and is the most common type of pump used in the industry.  Its ease of maintenance, end pressure and cycle time, along with its special vane material that is tolerant to moisture make it the preferred choice of many facilities.  Tuthill's KLRC and A Series vacuum pumps have a stainless design option which is great for food processes.  These are single and two-stage vacuum designs.

Sap Extraction - Maple Syrup

Production for maple syrup typically happens during the later winter months, as freezing nights and warm days are needed in order to induce sap flows..

La forma convencional de recolectar la savia es perforar agujeros y colocar cubetas en los árboles de arce; sin embargo, el proceso lleva tiempo y por lo tanto no es muy eficiente. El actual uso de tubos plásticos y una bomba de vacío de anillo líquido para extraer la savia ha permitido incrementar la producción y garantiza que el producto llegue frío y limpio a la central azucarera.

Las bombas de vacío de anillo líquido de Tuthill, tanto la serie A de una fase como la KLRC de dos fases, se utilizan ampliamente en esta aplicación, con un requisito de vacío típico de 17" a 25" HgV. Las bombas de vacío de anillo líquido de Tuthill pueden funcionar con agua o aceite como líquido de sellado, con varias configuraciones. The OSR System is an oil sealed, self contained unit including an AF single stage pump.
