Bulk Bag Unloading

Active Weighing Solutions Bulk Bag Unloading Stations efficiently handle application variables such as:

  • Product compaction during storage or transport
  • Single or multi trip, lined or unlined Bulk Bags or Flexible Intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs)
  • Dust
  • Gravimetric or volumetric discharge
  • Batching or Continuous discharge

Our engineers work with clients to design Bulk Bag Unloading systems tailored to meet specific plant operational requirements. We work with other leading manufacturers within the industry, enabling us to offer the best combination of equipment to suit the need. Our systems are rugged and durable, delivering years of reliable service.

The Bulk Bag Unloading system is controlled using an EMC 2064 Weigh Batch Processor. This controller checks the batch weight and determines whether or not discharge can commence. It can be configured to start whether or not there is sufficient product. If the batch is not complete when the Bulk Bag runs empty, the controller will allow for a manual or automatic refill operation so another Bulk Bag can be loaded and the batch completed.

Depending upon the accuracy required, either the whole bulk bag can be weighed or for smaller more accurate applications, a weigh hopper is required.

Lifting frame with safety hooks

Adjustable handling supports

Aspiration point to remove displaced air allowing the system to balance air flow and control dust.

Pneumatic or vibration agitation systems available to suit the nature of the product.

EMC 2064 Weigh Batch Processor with

  • Material totalising
  • Automatic jog to weight
  • Automatic in-flight compensation
  • Batch counting
  • Simple calibration
  • Pulse Output
  • Optional
    • Analogue output (configurable)
    • Printer output
    • Communications to computer or PLC using RS232 or RS422/485

Construction

Painted mild steel construction as standard. Galvanized or stainless steel frames are also available.

Options

  • Paddle Agitation System
    A typical agitation system will have agitation paddles energizing one after another with a delay between each paddle. Paddle operation continues until the bag is empty or a flow detection sensor detects no flow.
  • Lump Breaker
    Designed to “re-size” product to a specific particle size where transportation compaction has taken place and large lumps of material have formed within the bulk bag.
