Spiroflow offers bag dump stations to empty smaller bags in a safe, efficient and dust-free manner.  This is not only good for the health of operators and the environment but it is cost effective too! Our range of bag dump stations includes options for dust extraction and the compaction of empty bags.




Bag Dump Stations are also known as Bag Dump Hoppers, Sack Tip Stations, Bag Tip Stations, Sack Unloaders, and Bag Unloaders but regardless of the terminology managing dust is always a consideration.

Dust problems caused by emptying bags of fine, aerated or volatile powders can be eliminated with a properly configured bag dump station.  This not only ensures that a healthy environment is maintained in your process area but also helps reduce maintenance and repair problems caused by powder contamination to surrounding machinery.
