Mobile Ventilation Sleeve

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

Mobile Ventilation Sleeve

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.

Dust Extraction

The integrated Ventilation Sleeve provides localized dust extraction to contain airborne dust and vapor. The full perimeter slot design provides 360 degrees of extraction to ensure that proper air velocity is maintained in the dust zone despite obstructions, such as an operator’s hands or a drum liner.


The Mobile Ventilation Sleeve shape and size can be customized to fit most applications. The Mobile Ventilation Sleeve can be built to work with any application height.

Weighing and Dispensing

The combined use of the Rheo Side Mount Drum Tipper and Mobile Ventilation Sleeve is an ideal way to safely and simply weigh and dispense from one container into another. Usually this configuration is used with either and in-floor or bench scale for weighing.

The Side Mount Drum Tipper allows the operator to safely and quickly empty contents from one container to another. The Mobile Ventilation Sleeve is suspended just above the receiving drum to prevent interference with the weighing operation and collects airborne dust that would otherwise escape from the receiving drum. Both pieces of equipment are mobile to allow repositioning around a dispensary or other areas where the system would be used.
