Dedicated Tablet Conveyor Affords Gentle Touch


Successfully solving the problems of using vacuum technology to convey delicate tablets, Piab introduces piFLOWt, the industry’s first dedicated tablet conveyor. Promising to revolutionize the automated handling of tablets and other fragile and valuable products, the piFLOWt features innovative and ground-breaking new technology.

Suitable for transporting up to four million tablets per hour, piFLOWt is primarily targeted at the pharmaceutical industry’s tablets and capsules. However, the tablet conveyor can be used to transport any fragile goods within a processing plant.

 Eliminating the use of inadequate standard equipment and alternative, often back-breaking, manual procedures, piFLOWt will safely transfer tablets between the various processing units, such as tablet presses, coating drums, and blister packaging lines, avoiding all risks of damage to the tablets.

 At the core of piFLOWt is the proprietary piGENTLE, an innovative technology (patent pending) that maintains a gentle tablet flow by regulating the feed pressure of the pump, ensuring that tablets, capsules or other fragile products are handled as delicately as possible.  piFLOWt is an extension to Piab’s popular and high quality range of piFLOW conveyors for powder and bulk materials, and is specially developed to meet the stringent demands regarding operational safety and hygiene within the pharmaceutical (piFLOWp), food (piFLOWf), and chemical (piFLOWi) industries.


Typical applications are transfer of:

  • tablets
  • capsules
  • coffee
  • granules
  • other fragile products
