Bulk-Bag-to-Bin Weigh Batching System

June 23, 2009

This dust-free bulk bag weigh batching system features a manual Spout-Lock clamp ring atop a pneumatically-actuated Tele-Tube telescoping tube that creates a high-integrity, sealed connection between the clean side of the bag spout and the clean side of the hopper, and automatically elongates the bag as it empties to promote evacuation. Partially empty bags can be retied dust-free with a Power-Cincher pneumatically actuated flow control valve. A low-profile de-lumping device breaks-up agglomerates and discharges into a gravimetric feeder connected via PLC to a floor scale, allowing accurate batch weights to be loaded into rigid totes placed on the scale.
