Potter Group was asked by a client to move a fine sand-like material that was used in the pharmaceutical industry. During the conveying process, this product had to be transferred from bulk bags to tankers. Key requirements that Potter Group felt they had to achieve to successfully convey the product included the following:
Potter Group contacted UniTrak to investigate if the M-100 Powderflight aeromechanical conveyor could be a potential solution for their conveying challenge.
In this case, UniTrak representatives made an initial visit to Potter Group’s Knowsley, UK facility, which offloads, handles, stores, and ships pharmaceuticals. The purpose of this visit was to assess the application and material, together with the operating environment and space in which any solution would be implemented.
During the application review, it was found that the product in question had a tendency to be easily blown about and to clog and stick to the workings of machinery. Due to this discovery, UniTrak decided to conduct a product test before recommending the M-100, or, indeed, any other equipment solutions.
The M-100 Powderflight machine, which works by propelling product through a conveying tube, met all of the Potter Group’s requirements:
“The team at UniTrak were professional and knowledgeable, and they really put their machines through their paces at the testing facility. We were so confident that their M-100 was the machine we needed, we didn’t hesitate in getting them to install it,”
-Bryan Mulvey, General Manager at Potter Group Logistics.
