The Fresco bag dump stations are used to safely and hygienically transfer product from bags, pails or sacks into the process system. They can be integrated to fit most downstream equipment such as flexible or rigid screw conveyors, pneumatic transfer systems and blenders, to name just a few.
A bag rest platform allows the operator to position a bag lifted either manually, using a bag lifter or from an in-feed conveyor in front of the hinged access door. The hinged access door once opened is held in place by a gas stay support.
The bag is then slit manually and the product tipped into the easy clean hopper of the dump bag which is provided with quick removable safety mesh to prevent bags from falling in. The design of the dump bag hopper depends on the product and can include flow control devices like agitators, vibrators and air pads.
A dust off take spigot allows for connection to an existing dust collection system (of suitable duty) to draw the dust away from the operator. This allows for a clean, healthy work environment complying with government regulations and agencies such as OH&SA and the EPA. As an option, an integral dust collector can be mounted onto the bag dump.
For achieving faster throughputs, a twin dump design (with two access doors) allows more than one operator to tip product at the same time.
