NUVA FEEDER Dilute Phase Pressure System

The NUVA FEEDER® pressure system is optimal where conveying capacity requirements exceed the limits of a vacuum system. 

MultiDAC Dense Phase Pressure System

The MultiDAC™ system is intended primarily for short conveying distances.  Learn more about our MultiDAC Pressure System.


DEPAC Dense Phase Pressure System

DEPAC® is a dense phase system for conveying large quantity of material at low velocity over very long distances. 


Vacuum Systems

The NUVEYOR® Vacuum System is an industry standard for efficient, reliable ash removal and is capable of conveying up to 80 TPH and distances of 1500 ft (450m).

Vacuum-Pressure Transfer System

UCC's Vacuum/Pressure Transfer systems combine the simplicity and lower headroom requirements of a vacuum system under the hoppers with the high capacity and long distance conveying capability of a positive pressure system.


Ideal for converting wet sluice systems into a “dry” ash system without change to the existing bottom ash hoppers.


Pneumatic Systems

UCC pioneered the first dry bottom ash system using pneumatic technology in 1920. The PAX Pneumatic Ash Extractor added new technology to this time-proven vacuum system design and offers many benefits over wet bottom ash systems.

Lime Handling

Lime Handling systems for wet scrubbers, dry scrubbers and fluidized bed boiler (FBB) applications.
