Spiroflow Systems, Inc: Bulk bag discharger for weighing & batching

The “Spiroflow” Type 3 Bulk Bag Discharger from Spiroflow Systems, Inc. accurately dispenses bulk ingredients and/or minor additives from 20 lb. to 3,500 lb. batches by using electronic load cells directly below the top bag holding frame.

The bag and load cells are safely off the floor out of the way of facility hazards such as forklifts.  As an option, an integral transfer conveyor such as a Flexible Screw Conveyor (FSC) can be suspended from the holding frame for a totally self-contained discharge and loss-in-weight dispensing system.  Dust and contamination free in operation. In reverse, this process allows for safe and dust-free removal of partially emptied bags.
