Big-bag discharge station with dust-free docking station

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Big-Bag Unloader (BBU; photo) features a new, dust-free docking station. Included as standard equipment on the bulk-bag unloader, the new docking station features a proprietary design with integrated inner ring, outlet spout and cover that establish a sealed connection between the bag and the discharge. Material transfer from bulk bags into a hopper, reactor, pneumatic conveyor or another location moves freely for fast, safe, complete emptying without clogging while any dust is neatly contained within the docking station. The docking station is offered in a wide range of sizes to match the bag and material properties to the discharge spout. — Gericke USA, Inc., Somerset, N.J.
