Volkmann Introduces the BBUone Bulk Bag Unloader - Optimizes Dust-Free Material Flow
Volkmann, Inc. offers a Bulk Bag Unloading Station, available in either a fork-lift or hoist version.
The BBUone has been designed with modular components and many optional features to meet a variety of production requirements. It features a two-ton capacity, a low profile pick-up, and a patent pending dust-tight connector to the feed hopper. This discharge chute connector keeps product flow contained and also prevents dirt and other waste material that has collected on the underside of the bulk bag from entering and contaminating the product flow.
Available in either a oofj fork-lift or hoist version, the BBUone can be customized with frame extension sets and electric chain hoists with passive or active crab mechanisms. Other options include massaging paddles with pneumatic actuators, material agitators and material delumpers to aid material flow; a manual or pneumatic covering for the material discharge module; a dust collector to maintain environmental air quality; and an interface for Volkmann conveying systems to move the product downstream in the production process.
Volkmann engineers and manufactures high quality, high performance vacuum conveyors, bag dump stations, unloaders and equipment for the safe handling of fine chemicals, granules, pellets, tablets, food particles and small components. For more information call 609-265-0101.
