Cone Valve technology for contained powder transfer from IBC and FIBC

Based on the well known Cone Valve principle, the SoliValve® system overcomes traditional issues encountered with the 20+ years old traditional cone valves. The SoliValve®250 is truly the Cone Valve 2.0.

The first major difference is that SoliValve® is compatible with all type of recipients from Rigid IBC, FIBC to drums.

Then, the SoliValve® is the only Cone Valve system equipped with the patented fluidisation feature that allows to blow air or nitrogen inside the recipient to help discharge difficult flowing powder, break bridges and avoid segregation and rat holing.

The SoliValve® system allows fully automatic and contained handling of big bags, containers (IBCs), and drums thank to a universal passive valve. No manual operations are needed anymore to connect/disconnect the recipient. Partial discharging of IBCs and FIBCs is possible at any time and is dust-tight.

SoliValve®250 is as well a very accurate direct dosing device, avoiding the use of an additional metering unit to dose your products. The SoliValve®250 doses the material vertically from the storage container, allowing re-closing of partially empty vessel and changing to a next ingredient without the need to empty the dosing hopper. A dosing precision of 1% (even 0.5% with SoliValve®100) can be achieved depending on the scale resolution.

The Passive-SoliValve® being made of injected polymer, it is very cost efficient, and allows single usage of FIBC instead of expensive RIBC.

And finally, one of the biggest advantage of this system is its containment. The SoliValve® ensure dust tight powder transfer. A SMEPAC test with Lactose was conducted by an independent labor on the SoliValve®100 and gave an OEB 5 value (<1 ug/m3).
