Contained Powder Handling


Drum Filling and Liners

PSL’s Drum Filling Systems provide refined containment and ergonomic designs that ensure effective and completely protected operations. Drum filling users can benefit from straightforward procedures including PSL’s double o-ring technology.

Our Drum Filling Systems are specifically designed to suit requirements for operator exposure levels, product protection, cleaning regimes and powder properties.

PSL Sytems include a continuous liner that is loaded onto a 316 stainless steel chute by a bayonet−style cage. The liner can be loaded onto the cage using a stainless steel liner loading table, which makes the loading operation simpler and faster.

PSL’s Drum Filling Systems can greatly enhance production flexibility through utilising a common containment system for powders of varying potency. PSL’s single drum filling glovebox/isolator for multiple containment levels provides a successful working example.
