Conveying bagged goods with lumps
Volkmann GmbH, May 27, 2020
Sometimes after long periods in storage, or due to the nature of the product, agglomerates can occur in bags and other storage containers. These can lead to blockages in the suction line during conveying or with negative influences in the downstream processes, because, for example, products can no longer be efficiently mixed.
For this reason the VOLKMANN lump breaker was developed. This can be mounted directly by a flange, for example under the RNT 180 (rip and tip sack loading station), and breaks down bigger agglomerates before being conveyed.
Installation under a big bag emptying station is also possible. Due to its design, the lump breaker is easy to clean and, due to our type model examination, it can also be used in dust and gas ex-zones.
The RNT180 has a buffer volume of approx. 180 liters and can be expanded to up to 400 litres, if required. In addition, the station can be used with sensors, various emptying aids or as a weighed version.
