Big Bag Discharge Station

June 19, 2020

The BBU Big Bag Unloader enables food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and other powder processors to safely discharge materials from bulk bags into hoppers, feeders, reactors, sending vessels, conveyors, and to other stages in the process. Developed to promote consistent product flow and reduce material waste in a safe work environment, the unloader features a proprietary, twin-ring, dust-tight docking station that creates a sealed, dust-free connection linking the bag bottom to the process. With a single worker managing the operation, the bulk material transfer system virtually eliminates ambient combustible dust along with its inherent safety risks.


The versatile bulk bag discharge station offers a wide range of process interfaces, flowability equipment, dust containment systems, and loading infrastructures in a choice of mild or stainless steel as standard, along with a series of options to suit any powder handling process. Integrated, automated hoists, pneumatically operated bag closing systems, and built-in dedusting devices are among the available options. Hygienic and ATEX-certified systems are also available for sanitary and hazardous environments.
