Bulk Bag Unloaders

Bulk bag unloaders (BBUs) are an essential piece of equipment for companies in a variety of industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals, among others. They provide a convenient and efficient way to handle materials in quantities too much for totes and too little for silos.

  • Bulk Bag Handling: Bulk bag unloaders are designed to simplify the process of unloading material from bulk bags, also known as FIBCs (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers). They can be fitted with various features, such as an integrated scale, to accurately measure the weight of the material being unloaded.

Forklift-style, hoist-&-trolley, stainless, or flow assist, there is a solution for every application. Give us a call or fill out the form below to learn more get your ideal solution built and installed.

  • Customizable Features: To meet the specific needs of each customer, bulk bag unloaders can be customized with a range of features. For example, some units come equipped with a dust-tight discharge system to prevent material from becoming contaminated during the unloading process. Other units may have adjustable height settings, flow-assist, or fine metering control, as shown in the first gallery image.
  • Increased Safety: When compared to manual unloading methods, bulk bag unloaders provide a safer working environment. They minimize the risk of injury associated with manual lifting and handling of heavy bags, as well as reduce the risk of spillage and contamination.
  • Increased Efficiency: By automating the unloading process, bulk bag unloaders increase efficiency and productivity. They eliminate the need for manual labor, reducing the time required to unload bulk bags and freeing up personnel to focus on other tasks.
  • Flexible Configuration: Bulk bag unloaders can be ordered from a mass-manufacturing facility if they will be tucked-away and out of danger. But if they’re going to be out in the open and may be struck with forklifts from time to time, our BBU’s are made extra-sturdy and are famous in the brewing industry.
  • Easy Maintenance: To ensure continued operation, bulk bag unloaders are designed for easy maintenance. They typically feature easy-to-access components, such as filters and belts, that can be quickly replaced in the event of wear and tear.
  • Cost-Effective: While the initial investment in a bulk bag unloader may seem high, it provides a cost-effective solution in the long term. By automating the unloading process, companies can reduce labor costs and increase efficiency, leading to increased profits over time.
