The solids addition process for chemical reactors can be a complicated and very dangerous process. Many processes require several drums of powder to be added into the vessel. This often creates an ergonomic hazard as well as a very dusty work environment. The airborne dust creates a breathing hazard as well as cross-contamination risks.
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.
The Rheo Drum Tipper can be used to lift and place the drum into an ergonomic position for easy powder transfer. Using the drum liner to help guide the powder into the charge hopper, this system offers excellent dust control. Please see video below that shows how the drum liner can be used to transfer the powder in a contained fashion.
