Hygienic, dust free, vacuum transfer system

July 8, 2009
In response to the ever-tightening health, safety and environmental protection requirements of today’s manufacturing facilities, a bulk bag unloader line has been added to the manufacturer''s range of conveying and transfer systems. Dust containment and safe handling of bulk materials, coupled with the convenience of a vacuum transfer system, provides manufacturing facilities with clean raw material supply to mixers, packers and process equipment. Utilizing the vacuum conveyor as an integrated aspiration and transport solution reduces capital outlay, which in turn saves money! The easy-to-use design allows unloading of all kinds of materials without the risk of contamination from the emission of dust from Big Bags / FIBCs. They also provide the additional advantages of improving quality and operator safety. Available with hoist, forklift-loaded, or as a simple half-frame, the units feature discharge assistance, bag tensioning and partial bag cut-off features.
