Volkmann introduces a mini bag dump station for low-volume materials.
Mini RNT reduces manual bag handling for worker safety

The Volkmann Mini Rip and Tip (RNT) bag dump station is an automated sack-tipping solution for loading small volumes of bulk materials and ingredients into a process.

Applying the same modular design as the company's higher volume bag dumping stations, the Mini RNT accepts up to 40 l of powder, pellets, granules, and other dry solids in a hopper then automatically discharges the material for transfer. Manual handling of heavy bags, drums, and barrels is reduced, worker safety improved, and production efficiency streamlined.

Typically specified as a companion for the company's pneumatic vacuum conveying systems, the Mini bag dump station is suitable for loading virtually any dry material in modest volumes such as minor and microingredients and small batches in laboratory settings. The compact bag-emptying station features stainless steel construction in product contact areas as standard and is set on optional casters for easy movement.
