The Rheo Engineering Ventilation Sleeve provides localised dust and vapour control at the point of product transfer to stop contamination getting in and product getting out. The full perimeter slot design provides 360 degrees of dust extraction to ensure that proper air velocity is maintained in the dust zone despite obstructions, such as an operator’s hands or a drum liner.
