bulk bag unloader

Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc. offers a full line of Bulk Bag Unloading and Weighing Systems that incorporate many of the same structural aspects as the micro, minor, and major material weighing and batching systems, but are specifically designed to unload a bulk bag or tote, typically into a fixed hopper within the system.

Solutions are provided for unloading bulk bags of dry bulk solid materials. These bulk bag unloading systems can include the addition of mechanical or pneumatic conveying, a choice of weighing solutions including gain-in-weight & loss-in-weight, magnets for metal removal, dust containment/collection, bag massagers, and more.

Bulk bag unloading systems that include material weighing can be combined with a variety of turnkey solutions for conveying/transporting or dispensing the batch. These carefully selected solutions are used to convey/transport the product to the use points such as a day bin or mixer. Typical conveying systems include pneumatic & mechanical conveyors. Totes are commonly used where cross-contamination or product degradation is a concern; both solid surface totes and flexible totes are used. A variety of bulk bag unloading and weighing system installation configurations are possible, including allowing for the system to be mounted through a floor, or on a floor with legs.

Bulk Bag Filling Stations are also available from Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc.. The bag filling station (example shown in picture here) is custom-engineered and designed to meet the physical constraints of your facility, and can be provided with surge hopper, accumulating conveyor, and controls as a standalone process or can be incorporated as a part of the complete manufacturing process automation.
