Multiple Port Vacuum Bedding Transport System for Transporting Laboratory Animal Bedding from Storage to More than One Bedding Dispenser
The MP-VBTS is a computer controlled, multi-station Vacuum Bedding Transfer System that automatically transports laboratory animal bedding from a remote bedding storage area to multiple bedding dispensers via stainless steel transport tubing. With proven lift to 8 stories, the MP-VBTS is ideal for paper pulp, paper chip, cob, wood chip, and for defined habitat-type laboratory animal bedding.
Clean bedding is discharged from the system into multiple new or existing bedding dispensers at ambient (room) pressure. The bedding continues to be conveyed until the sensor set point (full) is reached, the bulk discharger then stops, but the vacuum conveyor continues (for a fixed period of time), purging the transport tubing of all remaining bedding.
