The vacuum handling system “PalVac Sprint Hygienic”, newly available in the Schmalz portfolio, moves heavy loads in clean rooms and hygienic areas. Thanks to clever design and the use of high-quality materials, the tube lifter can be cleaned quickly and easily, dirt doesn’t have a chance.
The PalVac Sprint Hygienic vacuum tube lifter helps professionals in hygienic areas and cleanrooms with the handling of shrink wrapped goods such as bags, drums and jugs. It is suitable for frequent and rapid lifting and moving of heavy loads. The polished stainless-steel surfaces with uniform grain direction mean that hardly any buildup can adhere and cleaning agents drain off well. The weld seams, which are ground without cracks or gaps, also contribute to this. The metal components made of stainless-steel V2A / SAE 304 and the wipeable protective tube are resistant to many cleaning agents, and the system can be dismantled without tools.
Move loads up to 50 kilograms
The handling solution consists of a vacuum tube lifter and a crane. Tri-Clover connections link the lifting unit, control panel and gripper. The gripper seals are made of FDA-compliant silicone suitable for direct use on food products. The HEPA filter integrated into the tube lifter protects the inside of the lifting tube from contamination. A differential pressure indicator provides information on the degree of contamination of the filter elements, so that a change can take place at the right time. An electrical blower generates the vacuum, which moves loads of up to 50 kilograms. Individually matched suction cups are suitable for different workpieces. The operator handle with bow-shaped grip allows the load to be lifted, lowered and released.
Large radius of action
PalVac stainless-steel jib cranes from Schmalz provide the necessary radius of action for the PalVac tube lifter. Also made of stainless-steel and optimized for hygiene, they are perfect for use in all areas where cleanliness is essential. The diamond-shaped crane section reduces horizontal areas and simplifies cleaning of the crane. The cranes can be individually configured for different applications and allow high working speeds and positioning accuracy. They support ergonomically and fatigue-free handling. The crane column is suitable for floor or ceiling mounting, and the slewing bearing enables movements of 220 degrees. Employees can adjust the responsiveness of the crane via an adjustment screw. Depending on the application, the PalVac crane operates with a conventional or an articulated-arm jib.
