Especially for the food industry, J-Tec`s R&D department designed a compact FIBC discharge station which incorporates a separate bag dump facility. As hygiene is of the utmost importance in the food industry, this unit was designed with the relevant EHEDG guidelines in mind. It is completely made out of stainless steel and can be delivered with an internal surface roughness of smaller than 3 µm. The rounded edges prevent product build-up in the unit, minimizing the risk of bacteriological contamination. FIBC discharge station: Thanks to the J-TEC FIBC discharge clamp, the dust-tight discharging of FIBCs is guaranteed. A vibrating dish promotes a positive product outflow, even for difficult products. This new model can be equipped with a pneumatic pinch system for reclosing the FIBCs during product flow. Bag dump station: The bag dump unit is 100% water- and dust-tight thanks to a special, FDA approved, removable seal and a closing system. It does not have any sharp edges and is very easy to clean. If the flow characteristics call for it, the bag dump unit can be equipped with aeration nozzles, a hammer or a vibrating motor. The unit also has some strong ergonomic features. For instance, it allows the operator to freely move his hands and head in order to perform the necessary actions. It is also equipped with a retractable support element on which the bags can be placed. This discharge station is available in a CIP execution as well.
