Sacks are still a commonly used type of containers in industry. For discharging them, they are cut open and generally emptied into a sack discharge station.
Sack discharge stations offer a convenient and compact possibility of discharging sacks in a low dust to almost dust free way. Depending on the requirements, the dust can be separated by means of an integrated filter with product return or using an independent filter. The side dumping outlet to an empty sack compactor or a collection container ensures a clean disposal of the empty sacks.
Sack discharge stations are available in standard or stainless steel as well as special materials. A wide range of requirements can be met from the simple robust and sturdy industrial versions up to dead material free and high quality versions for the pharmaceutical industry.
