Hicoflex® Disposable Containment System

GEA offers a disposable high containment interface for the safe and dust-free transfer of solid dosage material to fully protect your operator and your product.

With the Hicoflex® system, GEA ensures fully contained powder transfer during the charging and discharging of hazardous material. The Hicoflex® is attached to both a disposable containment bag, for material transport, and to a disposable containment adaptor that fits onto the inlet or outlet chute to allow product transfer.

Protecting Your Operator and Your Product

Disposable containment enables your operators to perform the jobs they should be doing, not washing small containers or waiting for cleaning validation.

Safe, easy to use and cost-effective, Hicoflex® gives you the power to work more effectively and efficiently – by reducing overheads and running costs while improving yield and output, and getting product to market faster. Benefits include

  • no cross-contamination owing to single use
  • visible contained product transfer
  • disposable, so no cleaning or validation
  • safe handling of potent products
  • fast installation and easy handling.


Hicoflex® disposable containment technology comprises two identical couplings that are joined together to seal the external faces, thus providing dust-tight product transfer. Hicoflex® Consumables can be operated using specially engineered equipment.


Whatever your application, from charging a reactor or tablet press to discharging an isolator or process unit, to the fully contained transfer of hazardous materials, we have a solution that fits your needs.

Charging and Discharging
Hicoflex® stations and our Hicoflex® Trolley enable the safe and efficient charging and discharging of hazardous products while complying with stringent containment requirements.

Sampling Technology
The specially designed Hicoflex® Sample Bag allows non-intrusive sampling from IBCs reactors or process units, for example. The sample can then be transported in a closed bag to any location where it can be removed and analyzed when required.

High Level Containment
Offering containment from 1–10 μg/m3 (STTWA) as standard, containment levels down to <1 μg/m3 (STTWA) can be achieved with an optional Hicoflex® Suction Device.


  • 100% FDA compliant
  • Manufactured under GMP conditions in a Class 5 cleanroom according to ISO EN 14644-1
  • Full traceability of product contact parts.
