Bulk bags can be an efficient and cost effective supply source for incoming raw materials and transfer of intermediates. However, bulk bags can introduce many material handling challenges that can be mitigated with proper engineering and design configurations. Proper safety interlocks, bulk bag conditioning, transfer chute connections, product sizing, and bag collapsing are all common challenges that must considered when designing a bulk bag unloading station. Rheo offers a well-designed modular system that can be configured to your process.
Rheo will supply a complete bulk bag unloading system that can connect to a variety of transfer modes. Common transfer systems include: vacuum conveyance, gravity feed-chutes, powder dispersers, and screw conveyors.
We can also provide an active nitrogen inerting system to maintain less than 8% oxygen during the solids addition process. Ask about our cleanable, nitrogen venturi system for a fully inerted product addition.
If you need to QS a portion of a drum or bag, we can provide an integrated weighing option.
