Sack Handling Dust free solution


Although Spiroflow actively promotes the benefits and efficiencies of bulk bags, which typically handle 1,000 kg of dry bulk, particulate, solid material at a time, there are still numerous application for which kegs, drums, bags and sacks are better suited. This is particularly the case for catalysts and minor ingredients. Spiroflow also offers a broad range Spiroflow sack tip stations for 20-50 Kg kegs, drums, bags and sacks too.


Sack tip stations


Most additives and minor ingredients are best added into the process at a controlled rate. This fact, plus the need to eliminate the dust problems caused by emptying sacks (etc) of fine, aerated or volatile powders, are accommodated by the Spiroflow range of sack tip and drum tip stations. They can feed material directly into processing machines via a metering feeder, a rotary or other type of valve and they are the ideal means of feeding the range of mechanical and pneumatic conveying systems offered by Spiroflow.


Spiroflow sack tip stations not only eradicate the dust problems caused by manually emptying sacks, but provision can also be made for the subsequent disposal of empty sacks. This ensures that a healthy environment is maintained in the process area which also reduces the maintenance and repair problems caused by powder contamination to surrounding machinery. Spiroflow’s basic sack tip hopper is complete with a dust hood, plastic strip curtain and spigot for connection to a central dust extraction system. Options include models with integral dust collectors. Sack tip stations can be static or mobile and can be furnished with check sieves and a variety of conveyors to transfer the product to process or packaging lines.


Drum Tippers


The Spiroflow range also includes drum tippers. The lid of the drum is removed and replaced by a special cone adaptor that incorporates a valve. The drum is then elevated, inverted and locked onto a receiving hopper forming a dust-tight seal. The valve can be opened allowing the contents to empty into the hopper from where they can be transferred at a controlled rate into a process via a suitable conveyor.
