Drumming out the drums
A company installs five bulk bag unloaders and five volumetric screw feeders to automate its portable-hopper loading operation.
A company that produces welding and cutting products for national and international markets was experiencing problems loading materials from drums into a large portable hopper. Handling the drums created ergonomic and safety issues for the operator, took a lot of time and labor, and caused storage and disposal problems. To solve these problems, the company worked with a dry solids processing equipment supplier to automate the portable hopper loading operation.
