Automated Drum Conditioner System

Automated Drum Conditioner System


Certain raw materials such as salt and other crystalline products can cake into a hardened mass that is nearly impossible to remove from their storage container. This often occurs when product is stored for extended periods of time.

As an alternative to manually impacting the container with a mallet, the EHS Automated Drum Conditioner System offers a highly automated, multi-drum package to reduce operator injury and improve productivity.

Product Sampling

Product Sampling


Incoming raw materials often need to have small amounts of product removed to comply with incoming quality standards.

In order to safely remove this product in a way that does not expose the operator to dangerous airborne dust or vapors, EHS offers a customized containment system that controls the OEL to the required level.

Ask your local account manager to design the right equipment package for your process.

Repackaging (A)

Repackaging (A)


Due to strict GMP requirements, some processes require that raw material is removed from a supplier drum (fiber-pack) and placed into a GMP container (stainless or plastic drums). This process is typically managed in a warehouse space and requires specialized equipment for lifting and dumping the incoming container as well as providing localized dust control.

Milling & Packout (A)

Milling & Packout (A)


The final stage of many API manufacturing processes is a powder sizing or milling process. This can process can utilize a wide variety of sizing equipment. The milling process is sometimes integrated into the packout process during the final drying stage, but often this is an stand-alone process. Common challenges with this process are associated with the handling of the dry powders. The transfer and milling process can be very dusty and may require inerting depending on the properties of the powder.

EHS offers a drum handling and dust control system that allows the operator to safely transfer powder into the mill feed-chute as well as collect the milled powdered into a contained receiving drum.

The EHS Drum Inverter with the integrated milling system can reduce an additional handling step and dramatically reduce the airborne dust levels of the operation. By integrating the mill and utlizing our EmptyAssist feature, the milling process can be made much more efficient and ensures that all the product gets removed from the drum.

If you are milling back into a drum or bin, our Mobile Ventilation Sleeve provides a very cost effective dust control solution.

Subsurface Vacuum Additions

Subsurface Vacuum Additions


The solids addition process for chemical reactors can be a complicated and very dangerous process. Due to the presence of solvents, there is often a potentially explosive environment within vessel. The addition of dry solids introduces risk of static discharge and entrained oxygen which completes the highly dangerous fire trial and risk of a major deflagration event at the manway. EHS offers many options for safe solids addition into your chemical reactor.

Bulk bags can be an efficient and cost effective supply source for incoming raw materials and transfer of intermediates. However, bulk bags can introduce many material handling challenges that can be mitigated with proper engineering and design configurations. Proper safety interlocks, bulk bag conditioning, transfer chute connections, product sizing, and bag collapsing are all common challenges that must considered when designing a bulk bag unloading station. EHS offers a well-designed modular system that can be configured to your process.

Bag Stock Reactor Charging

Bag Stock Reactor Charging


The solids addition process for chemical reactors can be a complicated and very dangerous process. Many processes require several bags of powder to be added into the vessel for a given batch. This often creates an ergonomic hazard as well as a very dusty work environment. The airborne dust creates a breathing hazard as well as cross-contamination risks.

If you are loading bag stock through the vessel manway, EHS can provide a Ventilated Charging Hopper with a built in bag landing table. We also offer a portable bag lifter that can be used to position bags so they can easily be slid from the lifter onto the bag landing table.
