Mobile bag dump station

June 29, 2004
New self-contained, dust-free bag dump system integrates a receiving hopper, dust collector, bag compactor, flexible screw conveyor, and explosion-proof electrical system on a caster-mounted frame with hinged operator platform. The bag dump station portion of the system collects dust generated during manual dumping and compaction of bags by means of a high-velocity vacuum fan that draws dust away from the operator onto two cartridge filters. An automatic reverse pulse filter cleaning system releases short blasts of compressed air inside the filters at timed intervals causing dust build-up on the outer surfaces to fall into the hopper. An integral bag compactor serves to contain dust remaining on bag surfaces while reducing the frequency of trash disposal.
