Spiroflow Systems’ T8 USDA Bulk Bag Discharger has been designed for sensitive products that must be handled in a controlled environment. This discharger offers the highest levels of sanitation and the lowest degrees of cross contamination when handling meat, poultry, dairy, food, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, pigments/ dyes, and catalysts. Typical applications include discharging bulk bags in any facility requiring USDA or 3A authorized machinery, when microbiological contamination must be controlled or where product cross contamination must be minimized, and when the end user requires easydry or wet cleaning of the equipment.
Standard design features are numerous. A dust-tight working chamber with a large 18” diameter dust-tight access hatch keeps the area safe from product spillage. Sloped surfaces are self-draining and prevent standing water from accumulating (source of microbiological growth). A continuous crack and crevice-free interior surface allows dry (air or brush) cleaning or wet cleaning of all surfaces. Separate inner and outer chambers limit contamination from entering the product feed stream from outside of the bag. The all stainless steel construction is suitable for cleaning with alkaline or acidic cleaners.
All contact surfaces are constructed of 304 stainless steel and pitched to provide complete drainage after cleaning. Welds are continuous and are ground smooth and flush, crack and crevice-free with a #4, 180 grit polish.
Non-contact surfaces, constructed of304 stainless steel, have continuous exterior welds, ground smooth. The exterior is satin smooth bead blasted using 200 micron spherical virgin silica beads (other polishes available).
Design options include bag massage for compacted, poor-flowing products (starch, cocoa powder, 10X sugar), Spiroflow’s patented bag spout closure bars provide a ‘hands-off’ opening and closing of the bag spout adding to the low contamination and clean operation of the discharger, loss-in-weight capabilities with integral electronic load cells, an integral flexible screw (or other type of conveyor), and an electroplated interior.
