Press Release Summary:
Mounted on frames with boom and casters for in-plant mobility, carbon steel Manual Dumping Station collects dust created during dumping of powder and bulk solid materials from bags, boxes, and drums. Vacuum fan draws airborne dust onto 2 cartridge filters while timer activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside filters so dust build-up on outer filter surface falls into hopper for reverse-pulse filter cleaning.

Manual Dumping Station with Flexible Screw Conveyor
BETHLEHEM, PA--A new Manual Dumping Station with integral flexible screw conveyor collects dust created during manual dumping of powder and bulk solid materials from bags, boxes, drums and other containers, it was announced by David Boger, sales manager.
The unit features a high velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust from the operator's atmosphere onto two cartridge filters. Automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning allows continuous, efficient operation; timer activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside cartridge filters causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper.
Filters are accessed easily by removing the interior baffle, and replaced rapidly using quick-disconnect fittings.
The flexible screw conveyor is said to handle free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including products that pack, cake, seize, smear, fluidize, break-apart or separate.
The system is available mounted on frames with boom and casters for in-plant mobility, and is constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial finish, or stainless steel finished to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
Hoppers are also available configured for connection to pneumatic conveyors or process equipment.
According to Boger, the manual dumping station is intended to reduce material waste and eliminate the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
The company also manufactures pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag fillers, drum dumpers, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
