Bag Dump System is self-contained and dust-free.
March 25, 2003 - Mobile Bag Dump System integrates receiving hopper, dust collector, bag compactor, flexible screw conveyor, and explosion proof electrical system on caster-mounted frame with hinged operator platform. Bag dump station collects dust generated during manual dumping and compaction of bags by means of high velocity vacuum fan. Bag compactor contains dust remaining on bag surfaces. Fully enclosed screw conveyor transports material to receiving vessels throughout plant.

Mobile Bag Dump System
BETHLEHEM, PA-A new self-contained, dust-free bag dump system introduced by Flexicon Corporation integrates a receiving hopper, dust collector, bag compactor, flexible screw conveyor, and explosion proof electrical system on a caster-mounted frame with hinged operator platform, according to David Gill, president.
The bag-dump-station portion of the system collects dust generated during manual dumping and compaction of bags by means of a high velocity vacuum fan that draws dust away from the operator onto two cartridge filters. An automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system releases short blasts of compressed air inside the filters at timed intervals causing dust build-up on the outer surfaces to fall into the hopper.
An integral bag compactor serves to contain dust remaining on bag surfaces while reducing the frequency of trash disposal.
The fully enclosed, flexible screw conveyor transports material to any number of receiving vessels throughout the plant, dust-free.
"Integrating system components capable of containing dust during dumping and compaction of bags as well as the conveying of dusty materials, addresses issues of plant hygiene more effectively than separate equipment generally can," says Gill, adding, consolidating the system on one mobile frame with an explosion-proof electrical system allows it to handle flammable as well as hazardous and non-hazardous materials throughout the plant, reducing cost."
The company also manufactures flexible screw conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag fillers, bag dump stations, drum dumpers, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered, plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
