Redesigned Bag Dump Hopper Features Smaller Footprint

July 26, 2011

The redesigned bulk bag dump hopper features a smaller plant footprint with resized, more efficient bin vent filter and provides a quick, easy, and virtually dust-free way of dumping and filling a process system with material received in paper bags. The design incorporates a baffle and bin vent (which can be attached to a central dust collector), or optional, highly efficient bin vent filter over the dump area to maintain a dust-free worker environment. Built for continuous, long lasting operation, the unit has a hinged door to keep foreign materials from falling into process material when not in use and expanded metal grid to prevent bag pieces from getting into the system. The dump hopper’s specially designed exit cone is also easily transitioned to accommodate other of the manufacturer’s downstream equipment.
