This custom Material Master bulk bag discharging system lifts, loads, discharges, feeds, weighs, and batches material from FIBCs. Unit features an electric chain hoist with motorized trolley and our exclusive Spider-Lift bulk bag lifting frame. The custom-designed discharge hopper includes a vibrator and features a custom door, allowing operator access for untying duffle bottom bulk bags. Material is then fed through the integral vibratory feeder into a weigh hopper with a gain-in-weight scale system. Once the target weight is achieved, the feeder stops and material is discharged through the actuated slide gate into customer’s downstream process.
