Flexicon Corporation: Flexicon Corporation: Manual dumping station
A new Manual Dumping Station for pneumatic conveying systems from Flexicon is configured with a nonflow-through pick-up adapter for introducing material into vacuum pneumatic conveyor lines.
System collects dust created during manual dumping of powder and bulk solid materials from bags boxes drums and other containers. Unit features high-velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust from the operator’s atmosphere onto 2 cartridge filters. Timer-activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside cartridge filters causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper. Filters are accessed easily by removing the interior baffle and replaced using quick-disconnect fittings.
