What to consider when choosing a bulk bag discharger

Planning to switch to receiving your dry bulk materials in bulk bags? This article explains what you need to consider when selecting a bulk bag discharger to unload those bulk bags.

If you'll be receiving material in bulk bags for the first time, you'll need to invest in a bulk bag discharger, as shown in Figure 1, to handle the bags safely, efficiently, and cleanly. To avoid one common mistake that first-time buyers often make, don't just choose a discharger that meets some of your material handling needs. Make sure the discharger provides the right bag-lifting method, works with your plant layout and downstream equipment, handles a range of bulk bags and material characteristics, and enhances your operator and plant safety. [Editor's note: For more details on bulk bag dischargers and how they operate see the later section "For further reading."]
