Continuous Processors Eliminate OSHA Confined Space Entry Hazard for Safe, Easy Cleaning

Readco CP Allows Full Access to Interior for Worker Safety

York, PA: Continuous Processors from process equipment manufacturer Readco Kurimoto, LLC, York, Pa. (, feature a double clamshell barrel design (optional) that invites full access to the interior screw and paddle assembly for easy cleaning without requiring entry into a confined space. A safety upgrade from batch mixers, blenders and reactors that often put workers at risk during cleaning, the Continuous Processors (CP) safeguard workers from exposure to these potentially hazardous situations while eliminating concern for compliance with OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.146 regulating permit-required confined space entry.

Suitable for chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and other companies, the Continuous Processor is ideal for specification in hazardous material processes where cleaning needs to be performed without human contact, without exposure to dangerous fumes, and/or where thick materials may harden onto the machine’s interior. To minimize the need for cleaning, the Readco CP is engineered with a self-wiping action that automatically prevents material buildup inside the barrel and discharges nearly 100% of material in process as homogeneous product.

Custom-engineered for each product and process, the Continuous Processor integrates mixing, blending, reacting, compounding, crystallizing, encapsulating, and/or other processes with multiple liquid, dry and viscous materials in a single step. The automated systems may be tested at the company’s on-site test laboratory using customer materials to verify performance with results guaranteed.
