The Rheo Vacuum Conveyance System [VCS] provides a safe, efficient, and contained means for transferring material using a vacuum source instead of relying on gravity. The VCS is ideal for transferring highly toxic or potentially explosive powders that are present in the pharmaceutical, food, and chemical industries. Safety, containment, and productivity are all addressed with this simple to use machine.
Safety: The Rheo Vacuum Conveyance System addresses the ergonomic risk factors of manually transferring material. The vacuum receiver can be positioned above any receiving vessel, including those that are out of an operator’s or machine’s reach. For products that are potentially explosive with a low MIE, nitrogen can be injected into the VCS to ensure the product is flooded with nitrogen before being discharged to the receiving vessel.
Containment: The Rheo Vacuum Conveyance System is a closed transfer system that can achieve containment levels of less than 1 µg/m3. Additionally, the VCS can operate independently so that operators do not need to be near the system during the product transfer process.
Productivity: The Rheo Vacuum Conveyance System can be used to continuously transfer material without operator involvement, which can completely eliminate one step of the manual material transfer process. The VCS comes in several standard sizes to achieve the desired product flow rates.
