Collect dust efficiently
Flexicon bag dump stations (also known as manual dumping stations) collect dust generated when dumping powder and bulk solids from bags, boxes, drums, and other containers, and return the material to the hopper.
The system reduces material waste and eliminates the need to clean a remote dust collection site, while protecting workers and preventing plant contamination.
All units feature a high-velocity vacuum fan that draws airborne dust away from the operator through two cartridge filters that are sized according to the application.
To operate a bag dump station, the hopper lid is opened, the vacuum fan is activated, and material is dumped through the hopper screen. Airborne dust in the vicinity of the hopper opening is drawn into the dust collector, protecting workers, preventing plant contamination, and reducing material waste.
An automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system employs timer-activated solenoid valves to release short blasts of compressed plant air inside the cartridge filters, causing dust build-up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper. Because the filters are blasted alternately at timed intervals, operation of the dust collection system is both continuous and efficient.
Tailored to your process
The hoppers of Flexicon manual dumping stations are available in various configurations for simplified connection to pneumatic conveyor lines, flexible screw conveyors, and virtually any process equipment.
All units are available in carbon steel with durable industrial finishes, or in stainless steel in industrial or sanitary finishes.
