Innovative system for residue-free emptying of bags

residue-free emptying of bags
This system improves hygiene and prevents loss of ingredients. Companies that take delivery of the ingredients used for their production processes in bags of between 10 kg and 90 kg actually lose between 0.4% and 1% of these often expensive ingredients due to the residues left behind when the bags are emptied. Dinnissen Process Technology has developed a new system for emptying such bags especially for these companies. With this system, companies can remove up to 99.9% of the contents when emptying these bags. By doing so, they not only prevent the loss of these ingredients but also improve hygiene and working conditions in a great many ways in and around the production area.

Removes up to 99.9% of bag contents via vibration-, air pulse-, and suction- based technology. Dinnissen’s new system is suitable for bags of 10 kg to 90 kg and empties them down to practically the last particle. The bag emptier prevents contamination within the production process and also prevents the ingredients from being dispersed into the surroundings. The system is particularly well-suited for processing expensive and contamination-sensitive ingredients such as coffee, tea, milk powders, baby foods, and raw materials used in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic sectors. The new system also proves its worth in situations where the ability to empty bags without leaving any residues behind results in lower waste disposal rates. The new bag emptying system automatically cleans the outside surface of the bag using pulsed air and brushes before opening the bag, thereby preventing surface dirt and contaminants from entering the production process. The bag is then placed and held in the bag emptier and completely cut open, thereby eliminating the possibility of contamination with the packaging materials. The bag is then emptied by vibrating it and blowing it clean at the same time. A compressed air cleaning system can be used to that effect. A sophisticated vacuum suction system ensures that no particles escape from the bag emptier. The ingredients sucked up by the suction system are carefully collected and utilized for the production process. For moisture-sensitive powders, particles or granulates, specially conditioned dry air can be used to prevent clumping and degradation. After the bag has been completely emptied, it is automatically carted off. As the bags are residue-free, the production environment remains clean and hygienic. If desired, the empty bags can be pressed together into plastic foil to minimize waste volumes and waste removal costs. Dinnissen’s new bag emptying system is suitable for bags of 10 kg to 90 kg of all types and sizes and can be used with ingredients that have a wide range of product and transport characteristics.
