Integral Compactor Included In New Bag-Dump System
A new bag-dump system from Flexicon collects dust generated during manual dumping and compaction of bags, and conveys bulk material downstream. The unit is intended to reduce material waste and eliminate the need to clean a remote dust-collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
Pre-engineered, prewired and ready to plug in and run, the compact system integrates a receiving hopper, dust collector, bag compactor and flexible screw conveyor on a frame that can streamline installation and allow for relocation if required.
The bag-dump-station portion of the system collects dust generated during manual dumping and compaction of bags by means of a high-velocity vacuum fan that draws dust away from the operator onto two cartridge filters. An automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system releases short blasts of compressed air inside the filters at timed intervals causing dust build-up on the outer surfaces to fall into the hopper. Filters are readily accessed by removing the interior baffle and replaceable using quick-disconnect fittings.
Vacuum created by the dust collector also contains dust generated when the operator pushes empty bags from the dust hood, through an integral chute, into the bag compactor or to recover dust created during bag compaction
