Bulk bag discharging: Tools for dust and static control
To help you limit material waste, maintain plant hygiene, and provide safe operating conditions during bulk bag discharging, some suppliers of bulk bags and bulk bag discharging equipment provide specialized tools. This article first describes bulk bag discharging, then describes several tools for controlling dust and static during discharge.
Fifteen years ago, bulk bags were mainly used for transporting high tonnage of relatively low-value materials such as sand or cement. Today, they're just as often used for smaller amounts of valuable materials such as organic food ingredients or specialty chemicals, many of which don't flow freely, are hazardous, and are inherently dusty. Bulk bag and bulk bag discharger suppliers offer several tools that can help you safely and economically discharge your bulk bags.
