The design of the weighing area and equipment used may differ depending on the type of processing that will take place, but some universal standards should be applied to any pharmaceutical weighing area. First, the materials as well as operators should all be moving in a single direction. Also, there should be a separation between harmful and harmless materials.

Stainless steel lifting tools designed for easy cleaning

Our mobile lifters are commonly used to move raw material into a weighing area, as well as used to transport materials to the processing areas. The lifters can easily lift, move, tilt and turn all types of drums or pails, as well as bags and other types of containers. Before moving from one closed area to the next, a lifting trolley can be hosed down to prevent the possibility of contamination.

In addition, a TAWI stainless steel vacuum lift assists in the handling of bags, allowing an operator in the weighing area the ability to easily lift heavy and bulky bags and emptying the contents into a pail or drum that has been placed on a scale. Thanks to the versatility of the vacuum lifts, the same one can be used to lift the goods from the scale and onto a pallet, and transport to the processing area without risking cross contamination.
