Single Tip Bulk Bag Unloader
Booth 356 – The Model T4 single tip bulk bag discharger is ideal for plants that require a rapid, dust-free economic and controllable method of emptying low-value or hazardous products. The unit discharges flat bottom disposable bags without a bottom spout and does not result in any product wastage or spillage, even if the product is poor flowing. A range of integral conveyors are offered to transfer discharge material to processing, storage, or packaging. Made of epoxy painted carbon steel or stainless steel, the discharger can be used in a broad cross-section of industrial applications. The discharger consists of a robust frame and discharge dish with a knife to pierce the base of the bag for seam-to-seam discharging. A double membrane with dust extraction facility ensures total containment of the dust. Options include vibration for the most stubborn products, an integral conveyor, mounting on wheels for movement around the plant, and a gantry with hoist to lift bags into position.
