Company: Material Transfer


Equipment Snapshot: Material Transfer recently released a custom Material Master bulk bag discharging system, as well as a Master Powerfill bulk bag filling system.

The bulk bag discharging system features a patented systems custom designed for discharging at a desired rate through a specified feeding system. Unit discharges into a gravimetric feeding system which then transfers product into customer’s existing conveying system. Unit features an electric chain hoist and Spider-Lift bag lifting frame. Unit features the exclusive heavy-duty Flo-Master bulk bag massaging system to promote material flow. Unit features the aluminum Seal-Master round bag spout access chamber with “gull-wing” doors and a custom, tapered carbon steel discharge transition complete with fluidizing system and a butterfly valve to refill feeding system. System features the exclusive stainless steel Sure-Seal pneumatic bag spout clamping system for dust-tight discharge.

The bulk bag high output filling system features a Power-Lift system for powered fill head height adjustment and an Easy-Load rotary bag hanger system. These features bring the fill head and bag strap connection points to an ergonomic position directly in front of the operator for quick and easy access.

Unit includes an electric bag inflation system for automatic bag inflation prior to fill start. The bulk bag is then filled by weight to a programmed set point and settled with a high output densification system. Once the fill cycle is complete, the bag inlet spout and straps release, the fill head raises, and the filled bag is transferred to the unloading location. Remote PLC controls (not shown) with color PanelView operator interface provide easy access to system status, recipes, and operational parameters.

Sanitary design features wash down construction to prevent accumulation of materials and to allow clearance for equipment cleaning.

Systems are custom designed for customers' application requirements.
