Containment Drum Discharging by Gravity or with Pneumatic Conveying Afterwards

Editor: Dr. Jörg Kempf

Containment means highest safety for product and operator, for Hecht it means even more: safe, clean and efficient. The company developed two systems for containment drum discharging – with the focus on easy handling of the discharging station and also of the local conditions of the users.

The two solutions for the discharging of drums have the same containment level (OEB 5), but with different working processes.

The Containment Drum discharging station with glovebox and integrated lifting device is one of the leading systems in the dust- and contamination free bulk solids industry. The easy handling during the discharging process as well as the simplicity of the drum connection is unique. Depending on your requirements, the transport to the next process step is possible by gravity (multi floor productions) or via the effective pneumatic conveying system Proclean conveyer PCC.


Depending on your product, it is possible to connect a suction shoe for the conveying system or, as an option a stirring device. The integrated front glass allows you to observe the conveying process. The gloves support easy product-handling. Due to the unique drum discharging station it is possible to achieve containment levels up to OEB 5.

If there is less space at your production side or if you want a weight controlled dosing out of the drum, the Containment drum discharging station CFE-L is an innovative possibility to discharge drums dust- and contamination free. The drum is positioned under the isolator by the automatic lifting device and connected to the box via a roller conveyor.

The drum can be discharged completely by using the suction lance with linear guidance and, as an option, with actuator. The window provides a clear view into the glovebox. The Proclean conveyor transports your bulk solids to the next process step. As an option, inerting with N2 is available. The isolator box perfectly suited for low space processing, because of its compact design. Automation and integration into an existing roller conveying system is also possible.
