Cone Valve Details

Cone Valve (SoliValve®)

The SoliValve® 250 overcomes the traditional issues encountered with the 30 years old traditional cone valve. It allows fully automatic and contained handling of Bins (IBCs). The SoliValve® 250 doses the material vertically from the storage container, allowing re-closing of partially empty vessels and changing to another ingredient without residual material in the dosing hopper. The SoliValve® 250 can achieve containment levels of less than 30µg/m³ and can reach a dosing accuracy of +/- 20g.

Butterfly Valve with Ventilation Sleeve

Butterfly Valve with Ventilation Sleeve

The Rheo Ventilation Sleeve provides full perimeter dust extraction for capturing fugitive dust during disconnection. When coupled with a silicon dust-cap this setup acts as a semi-closed transfer that is practical for simple applications.

Split Butterfly Valve

Split Butterfly Valve

Split Butterfly Valve configurations offer a high containment transfer method that has been widely adopted across the industry. The split valves are most commonly used in applications requiring containment levels below 1µg/m³.
