Continuous loss-of-weight bulk bag discharger

November 4, 2003
New automated bulk bag discharger is equipped with an activated surge bin and flexible screw conveyor allows continuous loss-of-weight discharging directly from bulk bags. Cubic volume of the activated surge bin exceeds that of one full bulk bag, providing ample time for bag changes during which system software switches to volumetric mode for uninterrupted operation. The bag-to-surge bin interface consists of a Spout-Lock™ clamp ring positioned atop a pneumatically actuated Tele-Tube™ telescoping tube, allowing dust-tight connections and unrestricted flow between the bag spout and activated surge bin, as well as automatic tensioning of the bag as it empties to promote flow and evacuation.
