This versatile and efficient unit is used for optimal discharge of big bags in closed automated feeding systems. The big bag is becoming more important as an environmental-friendly method of shipping and handling ingredients.
The big bag is suspended from a frame attached to a hoist, moved to the big bag discharge station, and placed on the support table. The big bag discharge sleeve is placed over the discharge pipe and fastened by manual or pneumatic lowering of the clamping disc. The draw string is opened and the connecting system is pneumatically lowered to tauten the big bag discharge sleeve. Safe discharge of material into the downstream process can then begin. For difficult to discharge materials, the big bag support table is equipped with a vibrator or big bag massager. Optional low-level indicators are available to provide indication of low product level for big bag changing in time.
