Manually transferring powder is a common but unsafe method for introducing material into a process, especially when the powder is hazardous and poses a risk to operating personnel. This was the challenge faced by a chemical contract manufacturer who was looking to improve the way they charged various powders into reactors.
The Powder Pump was tested to ensure it could successfully accomplish the material conveying it was tasked with. After meeting quality assurance approval, the Powder Pump units were installed with control systems to create an automated solution that provides a closed system and dust-free environment.
