AFC Bag Discharge Station Captures, Reuses Fines

Can be configured for use with a forklift or automated chain hoist

Afc Dust Recovery

The Automated Flexible Conveyor bulk bag unloading station comes with an optional integrated dust recovery system. Developed to prevent dust infiltration into the workplace and maximize the value of precious materials, the dust-free AFC BBU features a proprietary vacuum cartridge design that creates a downdraft during bulk bag discharge to promote free flow, while automatically capturing and filtering any fine particulates before they can escape the process. The recovered fines may be automatically returned to the system as additional material or neatly collected for disposal.

Reusing fine particles as invaluable material previously lost as waste, the AFC BBU offers an extra layer of dust control protection during the untying, emptying, and removal of flexible intermediate bulk containers, super sacks, and other bulk bags when the risk of nuisance dust infiltration is high. The AFC BBU is suitable for unloading bulk bags with up to 4,000 lb of material and may be configured for use with a forklift or automated chain hoist. The bulk bag unloader is custom engineered to accommodate any powder processing application, including for sanitary, hazardous, and non-hazardous environments.
