Mounted on a frame with locking casters for in-plant mobility, the system improves mobility and reduces cost by eliminating heavy frame components typically employed to support bulk bags, relying on the user's forklift or plant hoist to suspend the bag above the unit during operation.
The flexible screw conveyor transports both free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials including products that pack, cake, smear, seize or fluidize, with no separation of blends. Mounting flanges at the discharge end of the conveyor support boom permit the addition of a metal detector below the conveyor outlet.
Suspending the bulk bag from a forklift or plant hoist eliminates the need for a bulk bag support frame, reducing cost while improving mobility. Integral hood provides access to bulk bag spout drawstring, allows manual dumping of minor ingredients and contains dust when closed.
