Bags are staged on the bag tray and transferred through a plastic strip curtain into a hooded glove box and onto a grate, which supports the bag and prevents unintended operator contact with moving parts.
The hood is equipped with a polycarbonate skylight that illuminates the interior of the enclosure for improved bag slitting, dumping and disposal.
The automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system employs timer-activated solenoid valves to release short blasts of compressed plant air inside the cartridges, causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper, conserving useable product. Filters are readily accessed by removing the interior baffle, and replaced rapidly using quick-disconnect fittings.
The hopper discharges into an enclosed Flexicon flexible screw conveyor for dust-free transfer of free- and non-free-flowing materials to an elevated destination with no separation of blended products.
Dust generated from bag slitting, dumping and compaction is isolated from the operator and plant environment by means of a glove box enclosure with strip curtain and an integral bag compactor with sealed infeed chute, all maintained under negative pressure by a rear-mounted dust collector. An enclosed Flexicon flexible screw conveyor elevates material dust-free.
