With an optional batch weigh design, the bulk bag un- loaders feature rugged load cells and easy-to-use electronics that allow the operator to control inventory, monitor bag contents, and accu- rately batch weigh preset quantities of material. With a wide variety of feed devices and weight control op- tions, the unloaders also offer: a bag support hopper for safe seating and sealing of the bag, standard two- point dust collection, no-spill col- lection hopper, and a vibration dis- charge system for difficult-to-handle materials. Complete systems with integrated feeders and conveyors are also available to control rate and elevate material to a Process. Vibra Screw Inc., Totowa, NJ 973-774-3512 www.vibrascrew.com Dual-Blower Railcar Unload System This vacuum-pressure rail unload system unloads powder, pellet, and granular material from railcars at conveying rates in excess of 120,000 lb/hr. Using separate vacuum and pressure blowers, the dual-blower railcar unload system unloads ma- terial from the railcar at higher conveying rates and for longer con- veying distances. A vacuum blower draws material from the railcar to a self-cleaning filter receiver that sep- arates the product from the convey- ing air. Mounted below the receiver is an Aerolock rotary valve that meters the product into the pressure side of the system for final delivery to storage. Dual-blower systems are available in 3- to 5-in. line sizes and include a control panel, properly- sized blowers, railcar adapter kit, and hoses. Coperion K-Tron Salina Inc., Salina, KS 785-825-3884 www.coperion.com Aeration Devices and Discharge Aids Solimar Pneumatics designs and supplies aeration devices and discharge aids for storage silos, weigh bins, filters, and dry bulk tank trailers. The fluidizer helps discharge dry products like cement, flour, fly ash, and lime. Instead of only aerating the product like fabric aerator pads, the fluidizer uses air movement and vi- bration to facilitate the flow of dry bulk materials. Fluidizers can be installed from the outside using the fast- fit kit or EZ-in kits. Complete control systems allow one-stop shopping for all bulk discharge needs.
