SoliValve versus other powder transfer systems
Powder handling industries usually rely on conventional docking technologies like split butterfly valves and old cone valve technologies, however these have many limitations in functionality and performance.
The SoliValve® systems are the latest solutions available for contained docking and accurate dosing and are the perfect answer to the limitations of conventional docking systems.Standard Cone Valves and Split Butterfly Valves don't allow precision dosing. Dosing screws offers better results but the accuracy is limited by the size of the "chamber", defined by the pitch and the diameter of the screw.
The SoliValve® opening control has an accuracy of 1mm (0.1mm for the SoliValve® 100), allowing higher metering precision.
The SoliValve®250 system is designed to be used with IBCs, FIBCs and drums from 25 up to 1'500kg.
The SoliValve®100 is a system designed to be used for active ingredients, vitamins and highly potent API's. These types of powder are usually stored in smaller size recipients, from 1kg to 500kg.
