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.
This package utilizes the Material Transfer Station which has transformed the operator experience in the drum emptying process. With our integrated in-floor charge chute connection, the operator can easily transfer material from drums or bag-stock into a vessel on a lower level. Various containment configurations are available for this process.
We can also provide an active nitrogen inerting system to maintain less than 8% oxygen during the solids addition process. Ask about our cleanable, nitrogen venturi system for a fully inerted product chute.
If you are need to QS a portion of a drum or bag, we can provide an integrated weighing option.
