The SoliValve® system operates on a "closed transfer" process that is superior to a split butterfly valve in terms of containment. This system eliminates the typical operator interactions with the bulk bag spout during all phases of discharging, While providing a very high level of containment.
Once the dust-tight connection between both components has been established, the active unit opens the passive closure valve to allow contained and dosed transfer of the material from an IBC or a BigBag. After partial or total discharge of the content, the active unit re closes the passive valve tightly and the receptacle can be disconnected without any dust emission.
The SoliValve®100 has been rated for OEB 5 (<1ug/m3). A SMEPAC test report is available on request.
