Half frame bulk bag discharger for pneumatic conveying systems
March 29, 2004
New half frame bulk bag discharger offers total dust containment at low cost by eliminating upper frame components to lift and/or position the bag, instead relying on the user''s forklift or plant hoist to suspend the bag above the unit during operation. The bag-to-hopper interface consists of a clamp ring positioned atop a pneumatically actuated telescoping tube, allowing dust-tight connections and unrestricted flow between the bag spout and hopper. The dust-tight seal between the bag spout and clamp ring allows full-open discharge from bag spouts of all popular diameters, eliminating the need for iris valves commonly employed to lessen dust escape inherent with bag spouts hanging loosely in hopper intake chutes.
