Sterling Systems & Controls Rolls Out Bulk Bag Unloading Systems
Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc. introduces its line of bulk bag unloading systems. The customized unloading systems can include bulk bag discharging, material weighing and batch dispensing, along with the controls required for automatic operation. Sterling, a UL listed control panel builder, also provides the VFD panel and equipment along with a system control panel.
Operation is easy, according to the company. After hanging a full bulk bag in place within the upper part of the support structure and routing the bag spout through the iris valve and into the bag clamp, the operator opens the bag spout to start the flow of the material into the bulk bag unloader. The operator turns on the main power to the VFD and control panels and disengages the emergency stop. With control set for auto, the operator then sets the target weight, fast cutoff and slow cutoff set points, as well as the slow fill speed. At this, point the operator presses the start batch button to begin the automated process of bulk bag discharge, material weighing and dispensing.
