Bulk Bag Unloader Contain-it Chamber
  • The extra-large Contain-It™ chamber is used to access and untie the bulk bag.  Due to its size it easily contains all spills, when they occur.
  • Inside the chamber, the Clamp-It™ system clamps the bulk bag to the Tube-It™ discharge tube, creating a positive seal between the bag and the downstream equipment
  • The operator uses the Close-It™ bag spout valve system to accurately fill drums.  In this instance the operator manually operates the valve, partially closing and then completely closing the Close-It™ valve, thereby stopping the flow of product and accurately filling the drums
