Premier Pneumatics P-Series: For Sanitary Pneumatic Conveying Applications

The Premier Pneumatics P-Series vacuum receivers provide a custom solution for difficult conveying applications.

The P-Series are designed for easy disassembly, cleaning and maintenance with reverse jet filters, tri clover quick release fittings, food grade gaskets and an automatic filter cleaning system standard on all units. Other design features include steep cone angles to ensure excellent discharge and band clamps for quick disassembly. A polyester cartridge filter is equipped with automatic reverse jet pulsing for through cleaning. The sanitary design makes the P-Series ideal for applications in the food industry including snack, bakery, cereal, confectionary and OTC active processing applications. The P-Series is available in three models: the P10 (10 liter capacity), can convey up to 1320 lb/h (600 kg/h); the P30 (30 liter capacity), can convey up to 3960 lb/h (1800 kg/h); the P100 (100 liter capacity) can convey up to 8800 lb/h (4000 kg/h).
