The Visiocover from GEA is a transparent sanitary cover for visual inspection of and process access to non-sticky-powder processes. The Visiocover allows safe inspection without opening the cover, which would risk contaminating the product. An optional Visiocover Cam with integrated light source allows remote visual inspection through a video signal feed.

The large, transparent cover allows an unimpeded view of the process. Embedded LED lamps and process-side air curtain ensure good visibility. An integrated wide-angle camera provides the control room with a real-time view of the process, enabling the operator to obtain visual confirmation of the presence of powder or the degree of fluidization during start-up. During normal operation, many standard checks on the process can be performed from the control room.

For those currently using the company’s Sanicover systems to monitor their powder flow, fluidization, and cleaning, an upgrade provides three standard sizes to match the Sanicover systems. The cover has a sanitary design flush with the flanges on the process side, unlike traditional covers which have high collars and are often difficult to clean.
