Features And Benefits

  • Continuous liners are offered in cost effective lengths up to 150’
  • Continuous liner design eliminates cross contamination of powders, protecting the person, plant, and product.
  • Long lengths of pre-packaged liners reduce operator labor, allowing your operators to process powders, instead of shuffling film onto a discharge nozzle.
  • Multiple interfaces to process equipment attaching directly to existing hardware, including down-flow booths or isolators to enhance protection levels.


This product is also used in Bag In/Bag Out processes with rigid isolators and flexible enclosures.

Used for drums, Bag In/Bag Out operations, and processing tablets this system typically interfaces with an 8″ or 12” outlet canister. Transitions can be made to smaller interfaces as needed depending on the process.

  • Product offloading from sifters, mills, blenders, centrifuges, dryers and other process equipment.
  • Tablet offloading
  • Bag-in/Bag-out
