Machinery: a Bulk Bag Discharger and Batch Weighing System

Why installed: the burden of working with 25kg bags became an issue for review and it was decided a more efficient bulk bag dispatch was needed

The aim: to install a more efficient system of bulk bag despatch to the Netherlands and improve the batch process for the depositor

What happened: Flexicon designed, built, installed and commissioned a bulk solids handling system to address the brief

What it does: the system allows the mixer to be discharged into tote bins, as well as the 25kg bag packing line, then uses a transfer system to empty the tote bins into one-tonne bulk bags

Tech spec: the discharger and weighing system are constructed with all contact parts in Stainless Steel Type 304 with a food-quality finish

Problems solved: the new procedure has impacted from the point of discharge from the mixer in the Dry Mix Plant, and has reduced manpower from seven to four
