How does a sack tip station work?

  • Place the sack onto the front shelf of the hood and cut it open, emptying the contents into the hopper.
  • The hopper will then feed the contents to your Trantec Screw Conveyor, Gravimetric or volumetric metering screw feeder, or your existing process machinery.
  • To the front of the hood, there is a dust curtain. This contains the dry bulk solids, thus reducing the cross-contamination or dust clouds.

Optional Upgrades

We offer the following Sack tip station upgrades

  • Keg-tip mechanism, powdered by a Belimo actuator
  • Portable sack tip station on wheels
  • Door with safety interlock and switch for ‘dust-free’ loading
  • Metal detectable blue silicone gaskets
  • Dust extraction spigot for connection to a simple dust sock or a local dust extraction system (LEV). This can be positioned on the sides, top or rear of the dust hood.
  • Sack disposal spigot for connection to a polymer bag so that the empty sack is pushed through into it, therefore, containing any residual dust in the sack.
