E.F. Bavis and Associates create non-pneumatic, tape-drive prescription carrier


CINCINNATI Retail pharmacies that deliver prescriptions to drive-through customers via pneumatic tube have a more environmentally friendly option.

E.F. Bavis and Associates, a company that manufactures drive-through equipment for retail pharmacies, banks and quick-service businesses, has launched the Captive Carrier TransTrax, a non-pneumatic, tape-drive prescription carrier. The company said that other systems typically use 40 amps to operate, while E.F. Bavis’ uses two amps and is made with recyclable materials.

A company spokesman said that while it is conceptually similar to a pneumatic tube system, the use of a tape drive allows Captive Carrier to adjust to different vehicle heights and allows for manual retrieval in the event of a power failure.
