Live Bottom Bulk Bag Unloader Components You know how hard it is to discard the packing peanuts after you've received and opened an item which was packed this way. Whether you're targeting a small wastebasket or a large trash can, you cannot get all the peanuts from the box into the trash without some falling onto the floor. Even if you do score a perfect transfer, it is likely you took a long time to do it. This is a common problem in material unloading applications. Difficult materials are unloaded at manufacturing houses regularly. They cannot afford to spill the material as they unload, and they do not have time to waste in unloading. For this reason, the industry created a bulk bag unloader. Manufacturers have a lot of alternatives for unloader systems. One of these is named a live bottom delivery system. This sort of system operates smoothly, and has quite a few distinct advantages over other available systems. Let's talk about the features of a live bottom delivery systems and also the benefits that it provides. Super Sack For carrying dry materials, the super sack container is an industry standard. The bag is practically as tall as a person is and sits about as wide and deep as a trash bin. Roughly 50 cubic feet of materials can be stored in it. Able to hold two metric tons (4,400 lbs.) of material, needless to say, it's a very strong container. The Super Sack is utilized to load a variety of dry materials. From small particulates to large plastic, wood or metal scraps, it can store nearly anything. There are few limitations on what a Super Sack can store. The loading and unloading procedures typically dictate the limitations of a delivery system that utilizes the Super Sack. Overview Lifting the bag from a palette into place over the receiver, hooking up the discharge spout of the bag to the iris valve on the receiver and then delivering the material by delicately vibrating the bag with a gyrator is the function of the bulk bag unloader. The key benefits of the live bottom system are listed below: Smooth Material Discharge - the material is delivered smoothly to the receiver at a steady rate. The unloading process is sealed, stopping material spillage. This is particularly important for power delivery, where the chance for an explosion is possible. Flexible Design - to be able to adjust to many types of receiver configurations, there are interchangeable components. Small Footprint - without using a lot of factory space, it handles the Super Sack. Reliable Components - the lift and the other components are made from stainless steel or carbon steel. Many different Materials Can Be Handled - not all materials flow smoothly. Some materials, FormPak, Inc.

Live Bottom Bulk Bag Unloader Components including the packaging peanuts mentioned earlier, have complicated flow as a result of clinging factor from static electricity. Other types of materials have particle forms that can cause clogging. Because they are sticky or lumpy, other materials can also complicate flow. The live bottom system can tackle this entire array of tricky materials. Bag Untie Area - the trickiest element of the unload operation is the untie operation. When done improperly, a major spillage can take place. There is also a danger, having the operator nearby the discharge area. The live bottom system offers a tied discharge spout, supported by petal flaps, so as to provide a seamless, reliable method of performing the bag untie. To ensure that you get an efficient bulk bag unloader, try to find these and various other elements. You will make the best of the bulk bag packaging process by using a bulk bag unloader.
