Pevco Smart Path, our proprietary tube and diverter configuration, increases the overall performance and dependability of pneumatic tube delivery systems to help healthcare professionals deliver reliable, timely patient care.
Pevco has 30 plus years of healthcare industry expertise. Our innovative material transport solutions ensure that pharmaceuticals, specimens and blood products get to where they are needed when they are needed.
By using one blower for a transaction from start to finish, instead of powering up a new blower for each new zone a carrier enters, transactions take less time and use less energy.
Customers report that Smart Path transaction times improve by 15% or more by simply reducing the starts and stops a carrier makes in its journey. Smart Path also reduces congestion during high-use periods by evenly distributing traffic between multiple tube paths and blowers enabling your system to accomplish more transactions each day. And since empty carriers can be stored anywhere within the system, time spent waiting for an empty carrier is decreased by an average of up to 30%.
Pevco Smart Path eliminates dependency on any one blower per pneumatic tube system zone. If a specific blower is off-line because of mechanical failure, electric outage or maintenance, any other blower within the Smart Path can accomplish the delivery ensuring stations remain in-service and patient needs are met. Because Pevco Smart Path evenly distributes the workload among all blowers, equipment lasts longer and preventive maintenance is more easily scheduled.

Ideal for new construction or to support a hospital as it expands, Pevco Smart Path improves the performance of any delivery system whether large or small, simple or complex.
Smart Path’s tube and diverter configuration allows any blower to handle any transaction from anywhere in the system. This eliminates the dependence on a single blower for an individual zone and effectively eliminates downtime for blower preventive maintenance. And with Smart Path, most transactions are completed in just two moves - vacuum and pressure.
The Pevco Smart Path comes in both four and six port configurations.
