Pneumatic Conveying of Pet Food

Fox Venturi Eductors are used for pneumatic conveying of pet food in dilute phase systems. Is a maintenance-free pneumatic conveying solution of interest at your plant?

Fox food-grade, CIP venturi eductors are used in hundreds of global plants to pneumatically convey food products. These are used to air convey a huge variety of food products such as sugar, salt, cereals, grain, coffee, extruded snack foods, and nuts. Fox eductors convey from bulk bags, screw feeders, extruders, screeners, silos, grinders, dust collectors, and bag dump stations. Fox eductors are widely installed for dilute phase pneumatic conveying of fragile foods such as extruded cereals, dog food, snack foods, green or roasted coffee beans, peanuts, and IQF fruit like apple bits and berries.

Fox supplies 316 stainless sanitary/hygienic venturi eductors with highly polished and ground internals and tri-clamp ends, designed for CIP (clean-in-place) food and pharma applications. These are stock items at Fox for quick delivery. Many global system designers, as well as end users, have installed hundreds of Fox food-grade eductors under spray dryers, conveying whey, casein and other milk powders, coffee powder and non-dairy creamer, eliminating rotary valves.

Fox eductors are ideally suited for handling food additives like vitamins , spices and SiO2 from screw feeders for conveying into mixers or injection into other large convey lines. Fox also makes food-grade slurry eductors for mixing powders into liquids.
