Blender Drying (B)

Filtration and drying is a critical part of the API manufacturing process. Conical blender dryers are a complex, all in one system that accomplishes the task for drying the crystallized slurry. EHS offers containment and material handling options for the loading and pack-off of the dry powder. The Fixed Mount Slewing Drum Inverter can lift, invert, and position the drum of material into the blender dryer. The Mobile Ventilation Sleeve is a simple, yet effective containment option that provides local extraction during the pack out process.

Fixed Mount Slewing Drum Inverter

The EHS Drum Inverter features a very robust and portable design that allows operators to lift and position drums above tall applications. Custom options on the Drum Inverter allow it to accommodate a wide variety of applications. A variety of compression cone designs are available to allow the Drum Inverter to be used with a range of drum diameters. The optional empty assist feature addresses the issues associated with powders trapped in the folds of the drum liner during inversion.

For operations where a mobile Drum Inverter is not necessary, the Fixed Mount Slewing Drum Inverter fixes the same basic inverter design in one location. The column rotates via a slewing bearing, allowing the operator to load a drum in one position and then rotate the machine into position over the discharge point. The slewing motion can be manual with mechanical stops or powered with automated stops to ensure repeatability during operation.



Ventilation Sleeve

The EHS 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.

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 EHS Mobile Ventilation Sleeve allows the EHS Ventilation Sleeve to be portable and utilizes a simple linkage design that makes the height adjustable.

The integrated transport cart allows the Ventilation Sleeve to be easily moved from one location to another. A lift-assist mechanism attaches the Ventilation Sleeve to the transport cart, allowing the height of the Ventilation Sleeve to be adjusted.



EHS Solutions - Containment Equipment - Air Filtration Unit

Air Filtration Unit (Supporting Product)

EHS offers a complete line of portable and stationary Air Filtration Units that provide a local HEPA filtration device to serve Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems. The EHS Air Filtration Unit is designed to meet the utility requirements of multiple EHS Ventilation Sleeves; it is also a good fit for any application with similar extraction utility requirements.

Each system is configured to comply with international electrical standards. The GMP compliant design features a small footprint and noise rating of 76 dBa. Safe Change filters and activated carbon filters for VOC’s are also available.

EHS Air Filtration Units are a cost effective alternative to upgrading house exhaust systems that have become over utilized or where there is a need to prevent the contamination of the house exhaust system ducting.
