Sterling (IL), United States – Sterling Systems & Controls’ bulk bag unloading systems are highly custom engineered and manufactured. They can include many special features, such as material weighing and batch dispensing, system controls required for automatic operation, bag hoist, bag massagers, a variety of valve types, dust containment and much more.
Being able to maximize bulk solid material purchases has the benefits associated with buying in large bulk, e. g. lower cost, less production interruptions, etc. Like the bulk material itself, bulk bags come in a wide variety of styles and even sizes. The type of bag needed to unload is usually dependent on the supplier. No matter what bulk bag a material is contained in, it will always need an effective bulk bag unloader that is going to meet the exacting needs of an application.
Sterling Systems & Controls offers a full line of Bulk Bag Unloaders that incorporate many of the same structural aspects as our micro, minor, and major ingredient weighing systems, but are specifically designed to unload or discharge a bulk bag, typically into a fixed hopper within a system.
