Sanitary Bag Dump Station

May 24, 2010
This sanitary bag dump station for pneumatic conveying systems collects dust created during manual dumping of bulk materials from bags, boxes, drums, and other containers, and allows rapid, tool-free wash down. Optional rocker arms support the hood assembly above the hopper rim, eliminating the need for operators to lift and remove the hood during cleaning and inspection. A stainless rotary airlock valve with integral support rails allows the rotor assembly to separate from the valve body for sanitizing of material contact surfaces, also without tools. A high-velocity vacuum fan draws airborne dust from the operator's atmosphere onto two cartridge filters. Automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning allows continuous, efficient operation; timed blasts of compressed plant air inside cartridge filters causes dust build-up on outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper.
