Feed bagged goods in the process

Feed large quantities of bagged goods in to the process

There are many processes in which bulk products need to be introduced in large quantities from sacks and bags. For example, in to a mixer or stirred tank, this is often the case in the food or chemical industries.

The sacks are loaded on to the conveyor belt which transports these to the loading station activated by a foot switch, where the sacks are then opened and emptied. A waste chute makes it possible to dispose of the empty bags laterally into a waste bag compactor.

To help reduce the dust inside while loading there is the option to either connect the product loading station up to a local extraction system or to have a dedicated vacuum conveyor for dust removal.

lump breaker

If the product tends to form lumps during storage, a lump breaker can be connected under the feed hopper. This crushes lumps up to about fist-sized lumps.

Conveying bagged goods with lumps

Conveying bagged goods with lumps.

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.
