Bulk Bag Unloaders

Technical Details: Bulk Bag Low Headroom Unloader

Spiroflow's T5 low headroom bulk bag unloader empties bulk bags and bags in process areas where restricted headroom causes problems in handling bags or where only a low lift forklift is available.

The T5 bulk bag unloader is coupled directly to a flexible spiral or another suitable conveyor which meters ingredients from the bag either volumetrically or by weight. Ingredients can then be fed directly to mixing or other process equipment to provide a fully automatic ingredient unloading, proportioning and transfer system. The height of the access door has been designed to receive small bags, which is particularly beneficial to processors who have switched over to bulk bags but still continue to receive minor ingredients in 50 lb bags. Processors with batching operations may choose to have several bag frames for use with one discharge station, allowing them to partially empty, re-tie and store bulk bags.
