Bulk Bag Unloader Provides Closed-cycle Dust Containment; Protects Personnel from Migrant Dust, Improves Bag Spouting Efficiency, and Protects Process Operations from Contaminants
Holland, Michigan (December 1, 2016) – National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) – This NBE bulk bag unloader was designed, engineered, and built to address specific dust reduction, and process operation efficiency requirements identified by NBE during the application assessment. A non-NBE unit, that was previously in operation, often caused material dust release during the bag spouting sequence; presenting operator hazards and slowing process cycle times and changeovers. In response, NBE developed a process-specific bulk bag discharger that enables the operator to easily and properly spout the bulk bag while simultaneously enclosing the bag spout interface within the NBE E3® closed-cycle dust recovery system.

Whitstable, Kent, U.K. – A new BULK-OUT® Bulk Bag Weigh Batch Unloading System with Manual Dumping Station and Flexible Screw Conveyor automatically conveys weighed batches of contamination-sensitive materials to downstream processes and allows rapid sanitising.
The BFC model discharger frame is equipped with a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley for positioning of bulk bags without the use of a forklift. A SPOUT-LOCK™ clamp ring atop a TELE-TUBE™ telescoping tube securely connects the clean side of the bag spout to the clean side of the equipment intake, and maintains constant downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates, promoting complete discharge from the bag.
