Washdown Bulk Bag Unloader

BBUs Come In Many Shapes & Sizes.

We think our standard, patent-pending BBU design is the best in the industry by a long shot, and we offer several versions of it including full-height, low-profile, hoist & trolley, and other options for unique space restrictions and constrained budgets.

But Sometimes You Need Something Truly Unique.

Take this BBU for example. One of our sake clients needed a washdown option that could directly fill free-moving bins and load bags without a forklift. Stainless steel was the obvious solution to the washdown part, and hoist & trolleys exist to free up forklifts. The main concern was being able to fill these bins and replace bulk bags in the allotted footprint without going wild on cost. To solve this problem we mounted an auger and drive onto a swiveling arm and discharge. This allows them to roll whichever vessel(s) need filling underneath the range of the swivel arm and roll it(them) away as needed. Having the arm on the side also allows them to queue bulk bags without sacrificing operability.

A partial glimpse into the construction of a BBU

Nearly every application in the processing industry is new in some ways, and old in others; you just never know what’s possible until you try. That’s why we encourage producers to come to us whether their problem is clearly defined or not. We love discovering, delivering, and sometimes creating possibilities.
