Chemical Industries face many development and production challenges when handling powders.
As a result chemical facilities should be designed for multipurpose operations to adapt quickly to market requirements. The design of production units should allow for fast changes processes, preferably by using mobile and modular technologies.
Dec's proven, patented products dispense, mix, stock and contain bulk powders, increasing cost effectiveness, reliability and safety. They cover every stage, from the conveyance of raw materials through the introduction of intermediate products, to handling the final product.
Dec also supplies a product range that includes micronizers (effective to below 10 microns) and isolators, from simple glove bags to all-encompassing multi-floor systems. The variable nature of products to be micronized makes sophisticated consultancy a key part of this service.
Dec products, both turnkey and custom designed, are always of the highest quality.
Raw Materials Handling
The modern chemical industry faces multiple hazards during chemical manufacturing processes, especially when handling toxic, corrosive or flammable chemicals. As a result, every precaution must be taken to prevent major accidents
Dec provides a wide range of solutions for safe and efficient handling of raw materials used in the manufacture of chemical compounds.
When working with chemicals, safety is paramount. Uncontrolled chemical reactions can create serious incidents with the risk of injury to personnel and damage to property and the environment.In spite of this it is still common practice to load reactors with powder manually, through an open manhole. The innovative PTS (Powder Transfer System*) has many advantages over conventional powder conveying systems, particularly when charging pressure vessels.
Chemical processes are often run continuously. Dec has developed the PFL Powderflex System for continuous feeding - even over long distances. The PFL provides continuous and precise dosing and conveyance of small to medium quantities of powder, whether the requirement is for controlled charging of powders into continuous production processes or predetermined precision dosing.
Most powder sampling systems employed in the Chemical Process Industries (CPI) are mechanical, involving complex rotating parts. The development of new techniques allowing more accurate and representative sampling for quality assessment and other purposes at each stage of production was inevitable.
The patented MPTS (Micro Powder Transfer System) makes it possible to take powder samples without mechanical devices directly from equipment - even from a remote area.
