Bag unloading is more flexible with this system

This new Mobile Half-Frame Bulk Bag Unloader integrates a multipurpose hopper with a flexible screw conveyor to create a unit that can improve plant efficiency by easy repositioning to accommodate alternative bulk-delivery stations as well as manual bag discharge. The bulk bag unloader can be supplied in carbon steel with durable industrial coating, or stainless steel to food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards. The hopper is designed to accept material from either manually dumped sacks or direct overhead bulk bags suspended by a forklift or hoist. During discharge, the screw conveyor transfers material — powder, flakes and granular — to the downstream process vessels. — Flexicon (Europe) Ltd., Herne Bay, Kent, U.K.
