Manufacturers battle two highly common challenges within their material handling systems, inconsistent material flow, and material contamination. Both are challenges Ensign has faced thousands of times and has several solution choices that manufacturers can choose to integrate into their material handling equipment. In this month’s Application Spotlight, we review a few of these choices which were integrated into another Hoist Model Bulk Bag Unloading Station.
Our team quickly designed and delivered a comprehensive unloading solution by combining many of our standard, configurable options. Our Four-Corner Bag Massager and Electric Vibrator Package mitigates any bridging or ratholing and ensures the consistent flow of material from the Super Sack into the downstream vacuum conveying system. Additionally, a Magnet Filter with high-intensity magnetic cartridges separates any ferrous contaminants from the rest of the material stream.
This system also features an Iris Valve for the safe and efficient untying of the bag, a Material Receiving Hopper with Stainless Steel Material Contact Construction to provide a buffer between the bag and the vacuum conveying system, a Stainless-Steel Manual Slide Shutoff Gate for serviceability, a Vacuum Takeaway Box with Probes for quick hook-up to the customer’s vacuum convey system.
