Designing a bulk bag discharging system for safe, reliable unloading
Because of their large capacities and handling ease, bulk bags are the primary means of receiving raw dry bulk materials for many processing plants. This article presents six factors you need to consider when designing a bulk bag discharging system that can safely and reliably unload material for your process.
No matter what kind of dry bulk material you receive in bulk bags, you need to empty the bags with a discharging system that minimizes dust, reduces labor requirements, maintains reliable material flow, and is safe to operate. Understanding a few basics -- including how your bulk bags are constructed and what components are included in a typical bulk bag discharging system -- can provide a good starting point for designing a discharging system that will meet these requirements.
