V-Blending (A)

V-Blending (A)


Loading product into V-Blenders is a common challenge that can introduce multiple operator safety risks. Lifting and dumping drum or bag stock into the opening of a V-Blender is a difficult task that can expose operator to high levels of airborne dust and create awkward lifting postures that can lead to operator injury. If your blender can support full vacuum pressure, the Vacuum Transfer Station provides an ergonomic workstation with an integrated Drum Tipper and vacuum transfer hopper. EHS can also provide an independent vacuum conveyance system if the blender cannot support full vacuum. The emptying process of the blender is often a very dusty process that can be significantly improved by using the Mobile Ventilation Sleeve for local dust extraction.

Tray Drying (A)


Tray dryer technology is a long established drying process that requires a lot of tedious and potentially hazardous product handling. There are two challenging material handling processes associated with tray dryers and EHS offers a solution for both processes:

Drum Emptying onto Trays: The Side Mount Drum Tipper lifts the drum into an ergonomic position allowing the operator to easily pull the wet-cake onto the product tray. An integrated tray holder provides an easy way to hold the tray as it is being filled. The open side of the holder allows the tray to be easily slid off and into the dryer cart.

Tray Emptying: once the drying process is complete, the tray is placed on the tray holder and the dust extraction hood is flipped above the tray to capture airborne dust. The tray holder is then actuated to flip down and the powder is emptied into a receiving drum. The integrated hood provides localize dust extraction.
