Volkmann now offers an improved version of its popular Bulk Bag Unloading Station, the BBU2, built to the same exacting quality standards as its vacuum conveying systems. The unit optimizes dust-free material flow from the bag to the vacuum conveyor and downstream processes using advanced features to tailor the level of dust containment to the application without any contamination of the material or work environment.
The BBU2 has been designed with modular components and many optional features to meet a variety of production requirements. It features a two-ton capacity, a low profile pick-up, and a patented dust-tight connector to the feed hopper. This discharge chute connector keeps product flow contained and also prevents dirt and other waste material that has collected on the underside of the bulk bag from entering and contaminating the product flow.
Available in either a fork-lift or hoist version, the BBU2 can be customized with frame extension sets and electric hoists with passive or active traverse mechanisms. Other options include massaging paddles with pneumatic actuators, material agitators and material delumpers to aid material flow; a manual or pneumatic covering for the material discharge module; a Volkmann filter based dust collector located on the discharge hopper to maintain environmental air quality containing the vented product thereby reducing losses and keeping the surrounding area clean; and an interface for Volkmann conveying systems to move the contained product downstream in the production process.
