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.
