The solids addition process for chemical reactors can be a complicated and very dangerous process. Due to the presence of solvents, there is often a potentially explosive environment within vessel. The addition of dry solids introduces risk of static discharge and entrained oxygen which completes the highly dangerous fire trial and risk of a major deflagration event at the manway. Rheo offers many options for safe solids addition into your chemical reactor.
The portable Bulk Bag Lifter can used to lift and position the bulk bag above a reactor manway. The lifter has a programmable jog function that helps to lift and lower the bag once in position to aid in emptying the powder.
