Flexicon Corporation: Flexicon Corporation: Manual dumping station

A new Manual Dumping Station from Flexicon includes an integral flexible screw conveyor that collects dust created during manual dumping of powder and bulk solid materials from bags, boxes, drums, and other containers.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Filling/sealing  > Dry filling

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.
