Manual dumping station

A Manual Dumping Station with integral flexible screw conveyor collects dust created during manual dumping of powder and bulk solid materials from bags, boxes, drums and other containers.

The unit features a high velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust from the operator's atmosphere onto two cartridge filters. Automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning allows continuous, efficient operation; timer activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside cartridge filters causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper.

Filters are accessed easily by removing the interior baffle, and replaced rapidly using quick-disconnect fittings.

The flexible screw conveyor is said to handle free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders, including products that pack, cake, seize, smear, fluidise, break apart or separate.

The system is available mounted on frames with boom and castors for in-plant mobility, and is constructed of carbon steel with a durable industrial finish, or stainless steel finished to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.

Hoppers are also available configured for connection to pneumatic conveyors or process equipment.

The manual dumping station is intended to reduce material waste and eliminate the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
