Depending on the level of containment required, material from drums can be transferred in a variety of ways with the Powder Pump system. A simple suction lance/wand attached to the end of a transfer hose provides the most basic arrangement, with more complex isolator type drum unloading stations available for operations that require higher levels of containment. DDPS can provide drum unloading solutions of various levels of sophistication based on transfer needs of your product. In addition to our standard solutions analysis, we also review and address drum sealing and containment prior to opening, managing secondary liner bags in drums, and contained removal of empty drums.
The docking of drums for powder transfer could represent a challenging yet necessary operation while developing most production processes, especially when high containment is a must.
De Dietrich Process System offers the Patented Technology DIT (Drum Iris Technology), which is an innovative and easy-to-use solution for a fast connection. DIT is the perfect alternative to the common docking methods based on bag - in bag out or inflatable gaskets, and provides higher easiness of use and compatibility with drums of all diameters.
