The system uses a dust-tight discharge connector to the feed hopper for dust-free material flow from the bag to the vacuum conveyor and downstream production and packaging processes without contamination of the material or work environment. This connector keeps the product flow contained and prevents contamination from material that has collected on the underside of the bulk bag. With a 2-ton capacity and a low-profile pickup, it is available in either a fork-lift or hoist version. The BBU can be customized with frame extension sets and electric hoists with passive or active traverse mechanisms and an interface for Volkmann conveying systems to move the contained product downstream in the production process.
