Constructed of thick-wall, 6- x 4-in. carbon steel structural tubing and heavy-gauge carbon steel plate, the NBE 5-station, bulk bag unloader system meets or exceeds ANSI and ASME specifications. The controls and automation architecture uses custom PLCs and HMIs engineered, programmed and built to integrate into a facility’s central control system. The unloader includes 2 integrated hydraulic massage paddles with 2,200 lbs. of paddle pressure to condition materials and aid material flow. The materials move from the bulk bag through an enclosed bag spout interface where, with the closed-cycle dust collection system, migrant material is collected and reintroduced to the process flow.
