03.04.2017 High containment sampling out of drums

Dec Group (Dietrich Engineering Consultants), Ecublens, Switzerland, points out that taking samples from processes can be very dangerous both to the operator and to the environment. Operators involved in hazardous processes often have to wear breathing masks and protection suits. The samples extracted could create toxic dust, be corrosive or both. It is the duty of the employing company to protect operators and reduce risks when taking samples.                        
Dec can provide a safe solution for sampling processes with the recently introduced DCS Drum Containment System which offers excellent operation and cleaning conditions of high-hazard drum emptying and filling processes. Guaranteeing both primary and secondary containment of toxic and corrosive powders within a glove box, the system enables the operator to open the double liners within a sealed environment. The drums are emptied by means of a suction lance which is connected to a PTS Powder Transfer System installed on the receptacle to be filled. 
DCS is available with a special sampling head successfully reducing the risk to operators. It offers the possibility to obtain contamination-free samples of APIs or other hazardous powders, under inert conditions if required. The samples exit the system conveniently packed in a closed liner. After the operation the system can be cleaned in place. It will be featured on the company’s booth at SOLIDS Dortmund, 10-11 May (Hall 4, Stand C18).
