The Capway Captilever concept provides an economical, movable and space saving design. The Captilever assures gentle depanning and utilizes the same vacuum system as our Model 2000 Depanner.


The Captilever Depanner consists of the following three modules:

  • The portable vacuum chamber module, complete with height and pivot adjustment.
  • The vacuum and air filtration module, consisting of blower, filter housing, filter, vacuum adjustment valve and electrical control panel.
  • Pan and product conveyors are designed to be interfaced with the Captilever Depanner.

Operator controls are located on the base frame. All motor starters, protection and machine controls are mounted within the main enclosure, incorporated within the blower module. The blower module is supplied with noise suppression panels. These panels can be removed for cleaning.


  • All stainless steel construction.
  • Small footprint saves valuable floor space.
  • Blower module can be placed remotely up to 40 feet (12 meters) away from the vacuum head allowing for space flexibility.
  • Depanner head can be placed over existing conveyors.
  • Can be used in wash-down applications.
