Spiroflow Systems recently introduced a new low-profile hoist bulk bag discharger for use where low ceiling heights pose difficulties. The new discharger solves this problem with a low-profile hoist and unloading station operating at a height of only 10-1/2 ft, compared to the 16-1/2 ft required by most bulk bag dischargers on the market when an integral hoist is included on the equipment. The bulk bag is untied through an access door in the product transfer chute directly under the discharger. Optional equipment includes a flexible screw conveyor and loss-in-weight load cells, enabling batch weights of product to be discharged from the bulk bag as required.
