Dry Granulation (A)

Using roller compactors is a common method for dry granulation. This process requires that powder is filled into the feed hopper of the roller compactor and then the compacted product is often discharged into a bin or drum below the process unit. This process introduces many ergonomic and dust exposure hazards. Rheo offers multiple handling packages for addressing both the handling and the containment of powder.

Vacuum Transfer Station

The portable Rheo Vacuum Transfer Station features a small footprint that optimizes ergonomics and the functional requirements of a vacuum transfer system. The integrated Drum Tipper and vacuum hopper eliminate the ergonomic and exposure issues associated with open manway charging. The Vacuum Transfer Station can be configured to achieve containment levels of less than 1 μg/m³.

This Vacuum Transfer Station can utilize the evacuated vessel or PTS pump to carry out the powder transfer. Nitrogen inertion can also be achieved during the vacuum transfer of powders.



Custom Lifter

The Rheo manual lifter offers a cost effective, GMP handling device that is small footprint, and can be configured to lift and hold a wide variety of components.



Mobile Ventilation Sleeve

The Rheo Ventilation Sleeve provides localized dust extraction to capture airborne dust and vapor. The full perimeter slot design provides 360 degrees of extraction to ensure that the required capture velocity is achieved across the entire opening of the Ventilation Sleeve. Each Ventilation Sleeve is engineered to interface with the equipment it serves.

The Rheo Mobile Ventilation Sleeve allows the Rheo Ventilation Sleeve to be portable and utilizes a simple linkage design that makes the height adjustable.

The integrated transport cart allows the Ventilation Sleeve to be easily moved from one location to another. A lift-assist mechanism attaches the Ventilation Sleeve to the transport cart, allowing the height of the Ventilation Sleeve to be adjusted.



Rheo - Containment Equipment - Air Filtration Unit

Air Filtration Unit (Supporting Product)

Rheo offers a complete line of portable and stationary Air Filtration Units that provide a local HEPA filtration device to serve Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems. The Rheo Air Filtration Unit is designed to meet the utility requirements of multiple Rheo Ventilation Sleeves; it is also a good fit for any application with similar extraction utility requirements.

Each system is configured to comply with international electrical standards. The GMP compliant design features a small footprint and noise rating of 76 dBa. Safe Change filters and activated carbon filters for VOC’s are also available.

Rheo Air Filtration Units are a cost effective alternative to upgrading house exhaust systems that have become over utilized or where there is a need to prevent the contamination of the house exhaust system ducting.



Vacuum Conveyance System material transfer Rheo

Vacuum Conveyance System (Supporting Product)

The Rheo Vacuum Conveyance System [VCS] provides a safe, efficient, and contained means for transferring material using a vacuum source instead of relying on gravity. The VCS is ideal for transferring highly toxic or potentially explosive powders that are present in the pharmaceutical, food, and chemical industries. Safety, containment, and productivity are all addressed with this simple to use machine.
