Bag Feeding Stations Control Dust in Sanitary, Hazardous Environments
Somerset, NJ: Process equipment manufacturer Gericke USA, Somerset, NJ (www.gerickegroup.com), has unveiled its 2020 lineup of sack tipping and feeding stations. Encompassing hygienic designs for sanitary processing, ATEX-certified designs for hazardous environments, and standard designs to accommodate all other powder handling processes, the Gericke sack tipping and feeding stations enable food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and other processors to safely dispense bagged powders into the process or into storage and prevent dust from escaping into the plant environment. The self-contained units combine an integrated exhaust fan and cartridge filter system that help draw the bulk material from the bag into the unit and away from the operator to ensure 100% of the material enters the system while capturing fine dust particles safely inside.
Devised for ergonomic, manual dumping of bulk materials from bags, sacks, totes, and other containers, the bag break station features an integral bag rest platform, protective barrier grid, inspection port, and hinged, gas-assisted safety cover that secures the cover in place when opened. The bag dumping stations are offered in a choice of stainless steel or carbon steel construction with a variety of finishes in a modular design that allows for quick disassembly, complete access to the interior, and easy cleaning. Integrated reverse jet filter, polished internals, empty sack compactor, companion sifter, and other equipment are available as options.
The Gericke sack tipping stations integrate with sifters, mixers, pneumatic conveying systems, lump breakers, and other equipment from any manufacturer. The systems may be tested in the company’s New Jersey test center.
