Bulk bag unloaders from Best Process Solutions Inc. (BPS) provide dust-free product discharge from bulk bags. The units are expandable and flexible to meet discharging and bulk bag requirements.
There are three primary models: Model MTD-2.5K for unloading large bulk bags up to 2,500-lb. capacity; Model MTD-4K for bags up to 4,000-lb. capacity; and heavy-duty Model BBD-4K discharger with vibratory motor agitation to assist in unloading hard-to-remove products. Multiple configurations are available.
Every discharger is equipped with BPS’s Bag Transport Frame, which is designed for both fork truck and crane or hoist pick-up. The innovative tee handles with spring return keep bag loops in a safe yet easily removable position. Another standard feature is a bag untie hopper with hinged access door that enables operators to untie the bag at the discharge spout, with total weight of the bag safely supported. A dust-control port ensures airborne dust isn’t an issue during untying.
BPS’ self-contained chain type hoists are 2-ton capacity and are supplied with a pendant operator control and a manual trolley. Lift speed is 16 FPM, as standard; a powered trolley is optional. Trolley speed is 60 FPM as standard. Basic lift/travel is 10 ft. Air hoists for hazardous areas are available in a spark-proof design. Unloaders can be supplied for use with a customer crane, or in a crane bay for multiple unit unloading.
Optional features for the bulk bag unloaders include a pincher, which consists of two UHMW elliptical pincher bars powered by individual air cylinders to close off the bag spout for removal of partially unloaded bags. The access door is provided with safety interlock to prevent cylinder closing with the door in the open position. Other options include a linear tensioner mechanism and a bag extension feature.
BPS manufactures a complete line of custom-engineered, bulk-processing equipment and systems for a wide variety of dry processing industries.
