Online application tools aid product selection

Eases your way to a complete vacuum system solution

Hingham, MA --- Piab, a leading supplier of industrial vacuum technology, introduces the first three in a series of application configurators at www.piab.com.


These configurators tailor towards a specific vacuum application and guide the user to a suggested vacuum solution based on a few parameters that the user enters describing their need for a vacuum system solution.

Currently, there are application configurators for the packaging industry for handling bags and pouches and one for palletizing products. The third application configurator deals with vacuum conveying for successfully moving powders/granules.

The solution consists of a bill of materials listing all the vacuum products suggested to successfully handle your application along with information on the individual products. There is also a handy configuration summary that lists your application parameters along with the suggested configuration complete with drawings and instructions on proper placement of the Piab products.

There will be more application configurators added to the Piab website in the next few months.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
