Sack Tip Station
The Hanningfield sack tip station is a simple method for the emptying of sacks, bags etc. whilst controlling the dust emissions caused during unloading.
The operator lifts the bag onto the shelf of the station, piercing the bag and emptying the contents into the inlet of the downstream conveyor system. This provides a safe and contained method for the unloading of bags prior to vacuum conveying or alternative transfer methods (e.g. screw conveyors, bucket elevators). The sack-tip station incorporates a dust extraction hood to protect the operator and the process environment during emptying.
As standard, all contact parts are manufactured from 316L stainless steel (180 grit), with FDA compliant seals, gaskets etc. Non-contact parts such as the frame are manufactured from 304 stainless steel (150 grit). All standard materials of construction and surface finishes can be upgraded or downgraded upon request.
If required, the Sack Tip Station can be supplied with full validation documentation (FS/DS, FAT, SAT, IQ/OQ) and 3.1 mill certificates to EN10204.
Sack-Tip Station Feeding Vacuum Conveyor
The bag is emptied into the Sack Tip Station, where the powder is then sucked away by the vacuum conveyor (which in this application then discharges into the IBC).
