Bag Dump System Features Integral Compactor, Flexible Screw Conveyor

September 15, 2010

The new bag dump system collects dust generated during manual dumping and compaction of bags, and conveys bulk material downstream. The unit is intended to reduce material waste and eliminate the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.Pre-engineered, pre-wired and ready to plug in and run, the compact system integrates a receiving hopper, dust collector, bag compactor and flexible screw conveyor on a frame which streamlines installation and allows for easy relocation if required. The fully-enclosed, flexible screw conveyor handles free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including products that pack, cake, seize, smear, fluidize, break-apart or separate, with no separation of blended products. The entire system is available mounted on frames with boom and casters for in-plant mobility, and is constructed of stainless steel finished to food, dairy, pharmaceutical or industrial standards.
