V-Blending (C)

Loading product into V-Blenders is a common challenge that can introduce multiple operator safety risks. Lifting and dumping drum or bag stock into the opening of a V-blender is a difficult task that can expose operator to high levels of airborne dust and create awkward lifting postures that can lead to operator injury. Rheo Offers a wide variety of material handling and containment options for this process. For rooms with very tight head space, a simple Column Lift that brings the container to the level of the blender opening may be helpful.
