Powder Transfer Sleeves

Powder transfer sleeves move powders and other product between vessels, processing equipment and containers during production. STERIS Barrier Product Solutions, formerly GEPCO, offers many types of sleeves specifically fitted to mills, blenders, granulators and other equipment from many different manufacturers.

These sleeves are designed with inner skirts and other features to ensure that product is moved precisely and cleanly. STERIS Barrier Product Solutions has selected materials with optimal barrier/breathability to allow air or other gases to be exhausted, while preventing product from being dispersed into the production environment. These sleeves are disposable, but are rugged enough to be used many times before discarding. By using a disposable sleeve, the possibility of cross contamination is reduced. Furthermore, the need to launder and track contaminated sleeves is eliminated. Powder transfer sleeves incorporate elastic, drawstrings and snaps into their designs to facilitate quick, easy and secure installation of the sleeve – eliminating the need for tools to be introduced into the production area.
