Manual Dump to Rigid Bin Weigh Batching System

Mon, 10/01/2007 - 7:07am
This manual dump to rigid bin weigh batching system eliminates dust during manual dumping from bags, boxes, drums, and other containers. It de-lumps the material and feeds it gravimetrically from mezzanine level into rigid bins placed on a floor scale. The manual dumping station features a high-velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust from the operator’s atmosphere onto two cartridge filters. Automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning allows continuous, efficient operation while timer-activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside cartridge filters, causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper. Filters are accessed easily by removing the interior baffle and replaced using quick-disconnect fittings. The dumping station’s surge hopper discharges into a low-profile de-lumping device with dual rotors and three-point heads that break up agglomerates that have formed in the bag. On-size material is discharged into a gravimetric feeder that is connected via PLC to a scale on the plant floor, allowing accurate batch weights to be loaded into rigid totes placed on the scale.
