Bag Stock Reactor Charging

The solids addition process for chemical reactors can be a complicated and very dangerous process. Many processes require several bags of powder to be added into the vessel for a given batch. This often creates an ergonomic hazard as well as a very dusty work environment. The airborne dust creates a breathing hazard as well as cross-contamination risks.

If you are loading bag stock through the vessel manway, Rheo can provide a Ventilated Charging Hopper with a built in bag landing table. We also offer a portable bag lifter that can be used to position bags so they can easily be slid from the lifter onto the bag landing table.
