Containment and safety
Dust containment and the automated, pneumatic loading of reaction vessels are a growing demand of chemical sites, an application where Gericke has key expertise.
Very high feeding accuracy, even at low feed rates, assures process compliance. Gericke’s feeder range includes screw feeders and vibro feeders, and these can operate in either volumetric or gravimetric modes.
After the crystallization and drying process, a special Gericke machine, the Nibbler, is widely used for calibration of the granule size.
