Manual Dump System with Compactor, Conveyor

August 28, 2012

This manual dump system collects dust generated during manual dumping, compacts empty bags, and conveys bulk material downstream. The dust-free system is comprised of a receiving hopper, dust collector, bag compactor, and flexible screw conveyor. A bag in-feed chute through the sidewall of the hopper hood allows the operator to pass empty bags directly into the bag compactor, causing dust generated from both dumping and compaction to be drawn onto the system's 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, conserving useable product. Filters are readily accessed by removing the interior baffle, and replaced rapidly using quick-disconnect fittings. The compactor employs a large pneumatic air cylinder to compress bags into a removable bin that accommodates 50 to 80 bags. The main door, and a flapper door within the bag in-feed chute, are equipped with safety interlocks that prevent operation of the compactor unless both doors are closed.
