Packaging (A)

Tablet packaging requires gentle handling of tablets as they are introduced into the packaging machine fill hopper. Rheo offers a Variable Height Drum Tipper solution that places the drum of tablets over the fill hopper to allow a flood feed of tablets. This system is supplied with a tablet friendly control valve to control the flow of tablets into the hopper. Depending on how dusty the tablets are, a Ventilation Sleeve can be used to provide local dust extraction to improve containment for this process.

Variable Height Drum Tipper

The Rheo Drum Tipper addresses the ergonomic risk factors associated with manually dumping drums. Each Drum Tipper is designed to meet the specific requirements of the application (drum weight, discharge height, discharge reach, etc.). When a compression cone and valve are required to facilitate a hands free, controlled transfer of free flowing powders, tablets, or capsules; the final tipping angle of the Drum Tipper is increased to 45 degrees. This design is well suited to the filling of elevated hoppers in which a self-regulating flood feed is required.

The compression funnel is available on both the standard and Variable Height Drum Tippers.

Ventilation Sleeve

The Rheo Ventilation Sleeve provides localized dust extraction to capture airborne dust and vapor. The full perimeter slot design provides 360 degrees of extraction to ensure that the required capture velocity is achieved across the entire opening of the Ventilation Sleeve. Each Ventilation Sleeve is engineered to interface with the equipment it serves. The Ventilation Sleeve can be offered as a standalone fixture or mounted on an articulating, height adjustable arm. These arms can be integrated with a portable cart or a wall mounted plate.

Several options are available to ensure the best solution for the application. These options include bag landing tables, bag disposal ports, integrated lids, custom adapter plates, and product grates.
