Reasons To Use An Automatic Bulk Bag Unloader Station

What is an Automatic Bulk Bag Discharger?

An automatic bulk bag unloader station is a one-stop solution for potable water treatment, wastewater treatment, gas treatment, seawater desalination, and pulp and paper treatment. It is adapted to use with flexible containers of different volumes and provides for complete and automatic container discharge into a reception hopper with no subsequent product compaction. Big Bags can either be loaded with a crane, a forklift, or the crane integrated into the system depending on whether you’re using a standard or auto-load version of the Big Bag.

Which Industries Use the Bulk Bag Discharger Station?

There are quite a few industries that make use of this station the most, and they include:

• Wastewater treatment whereby lime is used for sludge stabilization to create a product that can be used on the land application in case of acidic soil. The sludge is stabilized to reduce its ferment ability and odors, reduce its volume by reduction of its water content, and kill pathogens.

• Incinerators of various waste, including households and hospitals. The gases produced contain different pollutants like dioxins and heavy metals, which must be treated with a reagent injection to reduce the content of pollutants to a legal level of emissions.

• Drinking water plants to remove pesticides, nitrates, cleaning agents, and other waste from the water to make it safe for human consumption.

• The pulp and paper industry to treat any wastewater produced before reusing or releasing it into the environment. Lime is also used in the process as a pigment to improve the quality of the paper.

• In the sugar industry, a preparation of lime milk is used to purify the cane juice so that the resulting product is free of impurities.

• In seawater treatment plants, lime is used in the process of reverse osmosis to adjust pH and remineralize the water before it can be consumed as freshwater.

What Options Does an Automatic Bulk Bag Discharger Station Have?

With an automatic bulk bag discharger station, you have the following operating options:

Isolation Diaphragm Valve

The diaphragm valve is used for the reusable bags with a spout. The aim is to block the powder after opening the node in order to avoid the dust emission while the operator open it.

Dust Collector

Big Bag Opening Knife

Big bag knife are used for non reusable big bag with flat bottom. Using this apparatus, you can stand at a safe distance from the bulk disposal bag while opening it. It increases safety as the big bag can be opened without the user having to have their arm under the suspended large bag.

Weighing Unit

This makes sure that the product always stays within the right limits and checks how much powder is remaining.

Autoload Station with Integrated Crane

The integrated crane allows for an extra option when loading the Big Bag so that if there is no crane or forklift available, operations can go on.
