Understanding Volkmann

Back in May we attended the International Powder show (PTXi) in Chicago.  One of our manufacturers, Volkmann who builds high-quality, high-performance pneumatic vacuum conveyors was exhibiting there.  During the show a Mike Wasson from Processing Magazine came by and on the spur of the moment shot a video at the Volkmann booth.  Nick Hayes of Volkmann in New Jersey who was quite likely a little apprehensive about having to adlib the whole thing, nevertheless does a fine job of relating the information.  The video shows both the VS and PPC units being taken apart which could be useful both if you have one and to see how easy it is if you are thinking about getting one.

While watching the video you will notice one of our own PROMAT team in the background (white shirt, good looking chap).  He is indeed our own Shawn Barber and you can see him helping a visitor understand the Volkmann system.  One can certainly appreciate and even almost comprehend what he is saying simply by watching his hands, and certainly you get a sense that he knows what he is talking about.
