Bulk Bag Unloader: Self-Contained/Inexpensive
PIAB Material Handling has introduced a pneumatic bulk bag unloader for use with its compressed air-powered vacuum conveyors. This simple and self-contained unit is said to be relatively inexpensive, compared to similar units.
PIAB does not publish prices, contact the company directly for this information using our Key Contact Directory on p 40.
With the bulk bag elevated above the station, the spout of the bag is attached (before it is untied) to an inflatable seal. This provides for a dust-tight connection and eliminates the need for glove-boxes, doors or enclosures.
All contact surfaces are constructed of 316 stainless steel. No tools are needed for disassembly and the unit is said to be easily portable.
