Powder Handling Equipment for the Chemical Industry

Our systems handle the most challenging of powders and materials commonly used in extremely high-tech chemical environments.

Your Challenges

No matter what the end product, a common need is for safety, containment, efficient mixing and maintaining blend homogeneity.

The very difficult-flowing nature of many ultra-fine metal powders and friction materials makes them problematic to handle.

Our Experience

Our solutions have been very diverse including systems for the formulation of refractory materials, dosing specialty ingredients for revolutionary flooring, as well as handling metal powders.


How we can help

The automatic, dust-free powder handling provided by our IBC system is particularly beneficial where the individual components are potentially dangerous for operators during critical processes.

The unique Cone Valve technology within each IBC can handle practically any type of powder, even metal powders.

Our Approach

Our equipment designs have provided superior powder handling capabilities for our customers, which in turn has given them an edge on Operational Excellence.
