November 1, 2017, Gainesville, Ga. – New vacuum transport systems developed by U.S. equipment manufacturer Cantrell lower costs for processing plants by reducing labor, maintenance and water usage while improving overall sanitation.

The technology is designed so weighing hoppers can be added at collection points. The addition saves workers from moving barrels to and from collection points, reducing labor and minimizing the need for costly auger systems.

“Whether moving edible or inedible product, we have a system that can reduce labor costs,” Cantrell general manager of sales, service and engineering Dane Woods said in a press release.

The systems also feature new filter tanks that reduce maintenance with easily accessible filters to eliminate the need for additional overflow cyclones.
