Press Release | DEC Group
JANUARY 31, 2020
Ecublens, Switzerland: – Powder handling and processing specialist Dec Group (Dec) will showcase its latest innovation, the revolutionary Safe Dock connection system at the Solids Zurich trade fair next month.
Dec Group will be an exhibitor at Solids Zurich, with a stand at Booth H12 in Hall 4 of the MCH Messe Schweiz exhibition center. The Dec display will feature Safe Dock along with its industry-leading PTS Powder Transfer System running constantly throughout the show.
Dec has patents pending on SafeDock that allows very fast and simple docking operations for bags and big bags filling while ensuring high containment.
The system consists of a single ‘dead zone’ free docking tube, closed by automated cover. A side port featuring a continuous liner system is used to remove the inliner. A flexible single-use ring seals the big bag spout. This ring can then be easily removed with the remaining liner through the side port while maintaining containment and isolation. A key advantage of SafeDock is that it needs no external power source.
Productivity through Process Linking
During the morning of Day One (1130 hrs. Hall 4 Science & Solution Center) Dec Group Area Sales Manager Ferdinand Reesink will make a presentation to the conference, showing ‘How to increase productivity through process linking’.
His presentation on Day Two (1330 hrs. Hall 4 Science & Solution Center) will be dedicated to PTS Batchmixer® high containment powder mixer, designed to handle toxic and explosive powders with no rotating or moving parts: “Mixing Effects of a Pneumatic Mixer with Inline Sampling”.
Active PTS transfer allows the mixer to be self-filling and fully discharging with minimal supervision or maintenance. Designed for pharmaceutical applications where active substances must be handled without contamination or changes to physical properties, PTS Batchmixer® provides industry-leading speed and flexibility, to minimize overall process time while enabling the operator to mix differing powders from two liters to 6000 liters in a contained environment.
Dec Group has a well-established relationship with the Solids Europe Series (SES) events and will again be offering free entry to the Zurich event to interested customers (see Resources).
“Solids Zurich provides an excellent platform to reach out to all those involved in the production/manufacturing process that includes any kind of powder and in equipment procurement to talk about better solutions for high containment, operator and product protection as well as process optimization,” commented Dec Group’s spokesperson, Gabriela Mikhaiel.
