Drying systems 

In drying systems, Effepizeta side channel blowers are used to remove droplets of water or condensation, generated by the washing and cleaning process of the products.

sistemi_di_asciugatura

Removal of liquid droplets and condensation

The product passes inside a drying tunnel in which the blowers generate a flow of hot air (average temperature 20 °C) which, through a series of nozzles adjustable in height, depth and inclination, remove the droplets of liquid and condensation from the product. Thanks to the drying it is possible to proceed with the subsequent stages of processing.

The blowers can also be used in combination with Effepizeta’s Windblade ™ air knives.

Drying systems are also used in the sectors: Food & Beverage and Metalworking and Mining.

Our solutions

The families of blowers used for drying applications are the MS and TS, possibly combined with Windblade ™ air knife.

Vacuum tables

Side channel blowers are used to keep the materials to be cut or coloured with precision and speed.

tavoli-aspiranti1

Fixing the material

The blower, often located beneath the vacuum table, is mainly used in suction to create a vacuum inside the air chamber below the slotted surface, blocking the holes and thus ensuring the fixing in place of the material. It can also be used in conjunction with a VS reversing valve to produce pressure to help release/break the vacuum after use.

The air flow and vacuum vary according to the type of processing to be performed, the size of the table, the porosity characteristics of the material being handled and the hole design.

Handling of a heavy product

The blower is used in compression to put in force air through the holes of the suction table. In this way, an air cushion is created that allows the object to remain slightly raised with respect to the surface and to be moved easily.

The suction tables are used in sectors that deal with: fabric, leather, leather, wood, marble, cardboard, glass or metal.

Our solutions

All Effepizeta blowers are suitable for use (inside) with vacuum tables.

Pneumatic post

Side channel blowers are used for handling products quickly and safely through the pneumatic post system.

posta-pneumatica

Handling of a product – in vacuum

The blower is used in vacuum to automatically pick up the products placed inside a box and transport them to a safer area, such as a warehouse or an underground room.

Handling of a product – in compression

The blower used in combination with the reversing valve allows the direction of the air flow to be changed. Thanks to it, the products are picked up from the warehouse and moved to the collection point.

Pneumatic post systems are used in the sectors; metalworking and mining and in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Our solutions

The family of blowers most used for pneumatic post is the MS, in particular the K05 MS and K06 MS, which can be combined with the reversing valve to allow operation in both vacuum and compression.

Pick & Place

In Pick & Place, the side channel blowers are used inside pneumatic manipulators, allowing the picking and positioning of materials to be carried out.

pick-and-place1

Withdrawal of the product

The blowers are used in vacuum inside the gripping system of the pneumatic manipulators, creating a negative pressure that provides the force necessary to pick up the product.

Product positioning

The blowers are used in combination with the reverse flow valves, to release the objects previously picked up.

Product handling also takes place in the sector Food & Beverage.

Our solutions

Single-stage blowers are the most suitable for this application; moreover, the combination with the reversing valve allows operation in both suction and compression, necessary in the handling of products.

Cleaning In Place systems

The pumps are used for Cleaning in Place washing of equipment at the end of the manufacturing processes.

pastorizzazione

Dosage of acid and soda

The pumps are used to dose acid and soda necessary to eliminate any residue deriving from previous processing from the equipment.

Our solutions

In CIP systems, pumps and mixers are used to prepare and dose the solutions.
All the above series, except the FM, can be coupled to a fast motor or electric servo control and can receive the 4-20 mA signal for automatic proportional dosage.

Solvent recovery plants

In solvent recovery plants, fans are used for the recovery or elimination of the solvents produced.

recupero-solventi

Recovery of solvents

Fans are used in printing lines to move the air that is loaded with solvents, allowing it to be removed. The fans work at variable speed depending on the phase of the production process, their regulation takes place through inverters controlled by the PLC.

Elimination of solvents

The fans allow a continuous saponification of the solvents allowing their neutralization.

The solvents are often reused in other processes if their quality is suitable, otherwise they are condensed and sent to the blast chillers which permanently eliminates them.

Our solutions

There are 2 series of industrial fans suitable for solvent recovery systems.
