National Bulk Equipment, Inc: Sanitary bulk bag discharger for food, pharmaceuticals
National Bulk Equipment’s (NBE) bulk bag unloader systems, designed and built specifically for food and pharmaceutical processing and packaging operations, help ensure compliance with domestic and international sanitary standards, including 3-A, USDA, FDA, and BISSC.
Application-specific construction, including 304-2b stainless steel framework, with continuous weld seams ground to a No. 4 finish, enables CIP sanitizing. Tool-less component dis-assembly speeds cleaning and simplifies inspection. 32 Ra component surface finishes and food-grade non-metal components provide excellent material release and resistance to corrosive foods, pharmaceuticals, and cleaning chemicals. These NBE sanitary bulk bag unloader systems also support process practice protocols where 3-A Accepted Practices or other cGMPs are necessary.
Integrated automation optimizes uptime within food and pharmaceutical processing and packaging operations. NBE system-wide process control, communication, sensing, monitoring, and reporting are centralized to a single, menu-driven, touch-screen HMI. High-speed Ethernet communications deliver information to UL listed panels designed and built by NBE. NBE custom panel configurations include UL 508A, Class I and II, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups A – D, F and G, and NEMA 12 enclosures with Type X purge.
