National Bulk Equipment Inc. (NBE) offers a bulk bag unloader system that handles highly caustic, severely agglomerated material, and operates as a closed process. According to the company, the unloader:
- Ensures the protection of operators from migrant, airborne material and eliminates the possibility for contamination of material in-process.
- Conveys material downstream at a rate of 18,000 pounds per hour.
- Features a sequential, four-stage process, including: hydraulic de-blocking rams each with 28,000 pounds of force; hydraulic massage paddles each with 2,200 pounds of paddle pressure; an E3™ enclosed, bag spout interface to collect dust and aid discharge; and automatic bulk bag loop retractors to ensure complete material discharge.
- Conditions material from football-sized chunks to ¼-inch or smaller particles.
