The discharge frame has also had a re-vamp.
Italian machinery manufacturer Beccaria S.r.l has launched updated models of its big-bag discharge and big-bag filling frames.
The group says that the updated filling frame has had a “ground up” re-design. The arms for holding the bag have been modified to provide greater strength and can be positioned to accommodate different bag heights by locating a pin in a series of holes in the uprights. The central filling tube is telescopic so can also be set at the appropriate height for the bag being filled.
Beccaria says that ergonomics and safety have also been improved for the operator with the addition of a fixed ladder to access the neck of the bag. The bag clamping system allows the operator to use one hand to hold the bag in position whilst the other hand remains free to secure the neck of the bag. The filling frames are available with or without load cell weighing system.
Beccaria’s new big-bag discharge frames are available in two versions: one intended to be loaded using a fork-lift truck, and one for use with pallet trucks.
The pallet truck version has an integrated electric hoist for lifting the bags, with galvanised steel guides for directing the bags into the correct position. The fork lift truck version has a galvanised bag lifting frame which can be set at different heights depending on the size of bag being used.
The bag support funnel is isolated from the main frame using anti-vibration mounts and there is a mounting point on the discharge funnel for a vibrator if it is required for the type of material being processed.
For materials which require a greater level of agitation a bag massaging system is also available. The discharge funnel features a large rubber gasket to seal the base of the bag against the discharge frame preventing the escape of dust, and beneath the funnel there is an access door to allow the user to untie the bag with a screen for catching any bag fragments or other large contaminants.
