High containment process feeding for powder out of drums
Dec's Isocharge is best described as a hybrid design, crossing laminar flow technology with a glove box isolator. It provides the operator with the protection of a gloved visor and the flexibility of an open laminar flow booth providing a high containment solution for rapidly dispensing and charging powders into any process. The system is designed to feed powder from bags or drums into process equipment whilst managing all contamination risks for both operators and the environment.
Isocharge for drums
In addition to bags, the Isocharge system has been further developed for emptying also drums up to 150 kg. The drums are lifted on the side of the unit by a drum tipper and the liner with powder can be pulled inside by using a specially conceived pulley system preventing the operator to have to handle heavy loads.
The bag is then moved inside the chamber where it can be lifted and emptied into the discharge hopper, which can be connected to a PTS Powder Transfer System® to safely charge process equipment. The hopper can be chosen with various options such as a delumper in case of lumpy and hard materials.
