The Rheo Drum Conditioner provides a safe and reliable means of conditioning hardened product within raw material containers. The breakup of hardened product allows for easier product flow out of drums later in the manufacturing process. Safety, containment, and productivity are all addressed with this simple to use machine.
Safety: The Rheo Drum Conditioner eliminates the need for a mallet or baseball bat in the product conditioning process. The Drum Conditioner uses hydraulic actuators to break up hardened material in drums so that operator intervention for breaking up material is eliminated. All moving parts are guarded to keep operators safe.
Containment: The Rheo Drum Conditioner can break up material throughout the drum without removing the lid. This allows the material to stay contained within the drum instead of exposing the product to break up the material using other means.
Productivity: The Rheo Drum Conditioner can be programmed to automatically condition a drum using a customized recipe for each drum that can ensure repeatability with breaking up the material and can significantly reduce the time required by an operator. An operator can load a drum, press a button to start the conditioning sequence, and then walk away to work on another process while the drum is being conditioned.
