Unit is suitable for food, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, and other materials and ingredients

Developed to control nuisance dust, the AFC Dump Clean bag break station automatically prevents fine particles from escaping into the workplace during the transfer of powders into the process from bags, sacks, drums, and other bulk containers.

The bag break station features an integrated exhaust fan and PLC-based cartridge filter system that continuously draws dust inside the unit before it can become airborne and collects it neatly in a discharge hopper for reuse. Material waste is reduced and combustible dust safety improved while complete bag emptying and a hygienic plant environment are assured.

Suitable for food, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, and other materials and ingredients, the AFC Dump Clean is manufactured in a choice of mild or stainless steel with an industrial or smooth finish and continuous welds for sanitary processing. Access to the interior for cleaning and filter replacement is easy without requiring tools.
