Volkmann bulk bag unloading station
February 5, 2015
Designed with modular components, the Volkmann bulk bag unloading station has a 2,000-lb. capacity, low-profile pickup and dust-tight discharge chute connector; the connector keeps product flow contained and prevents dirt and other waste material on the underside of the bulk bag from entering the product flow. Available in forklift and hoist versions, the station can be customized with frame extension sets and electric chain hoists with passive or active crab mechanisms. Options include massaging paddles with pneumatic actuators, material agitators and material delumpers; a manual or pneumatic covering for the material discharge module; a dust collector; and an interface for Volkmann conveying systems.
