lifting chemicals in hazardous area

Processing of chemicals

When it comes to processing chemical products and ingredients there are various challenges involved to maintain both efficiency and safety. We look to reduce the manual handling involved by introducing solutions that will not compromise safety in the workplace or the integrity of the product. TAWI products are designed to ensure that every challenge in relation to these products is met whilst increasing productivity and efficiency in the process.

Balance without sacrifice

The materials used in the chemical industry usually reach the factory in paper or plastic sacks and bags (sometimes in barrel or jugs). The size and fragility of these package types presents a range of handling challenges. Often quite heavy and easily torn, these bags and sacks are difficult to lift and manipulate in an ergonomic fashion. Lifting these heavy bags and holding them while opening and emptying the contents can even be challenging for two people working together and carries a high risk of product contamination.

Using a TAWI vacuum lifter enables one person to complete a job that previously could have been done by two or more people, lifting bags up to 80kg with minimal effort. This reduces the risk of work place injuries and damage to the product itself. A single employee can complete the whole process, from taking the bag from a pallet to the mixing container, emptying and disposing of the empty bag. All of this can be done efficiently and safely, improving the processing workflow and decreasing the risk of cross contamination that can be caused by manually handling these goods.

We pride ourselves on offering solutions for clean room environments and processing areas that involve dangerous or volatile raw ingredients. TAWI vacuum lifters are available in stainless steel to meet every standard set in these challenging areas. Our solutions meet FDA and EU standards and with our customisable options we can even provide ATEX compliant equipment. For example, using our remotely installed power pack can ensure that a TAWI vacuum lifter can be installed in all areas, even if they are classified as hazardous or ATEX rated. Our vacuum motors can also be adapted to ensure they are explosion proof, giving you complete confidence that your equipment is suitable for any area in your workflow process.
