Bulk Bag Discharger with Load Cells

June 23, 2008
This bulk bag discharger can be programmed for batch or continuous operation directly from the bulk bag while reducing human involvement, providing safe and efficient operation. For consistency, the entire system is mounted on load cells to accurately resolve product batch weights to ±0.5% error of accuracy. This feature allows batch delivery to occur at controlled rates using bulk and dribble methodology and without over-feeding. The proven agitator hopper design draws material away from the sides of the surge hopper, directing it through its center discharge and eliminating material bridging or rat holing. This results in consistent and reliable material supply to the screw conveyor. The screw conveyor is designed to handle non-free-flowing materials and has controls that receive loss-in-weight information from the bulk bag discharger’s load cells.
