Exceeds ASME B30.11-2004 standard for bag weights up to 4,000 lbs.; I-beam registers only .070" deflection at full hang weight capacity. 4,000 lb. Bag Capacity 508A or Class I, Div. 1 and 2 Groups A-D, F, and G System-wide process control, communication, sensing, and monitoring are automated to ensure accurate material feed rates and optimal line speeds. Control Multiple Process Functions from One HMI From construction to custom programming, NBE is a single- source provider of line-specific PLCs and HMIs; easily integrate legacy systems from Ethernet to PROFIBUS and more. UL Listed Panels Designed, Built by NBE Accountable from concept to completion; NBE 3D modeling, process flow planning, and factory acceptance testing ensure trouble-free start-up and optimal line performance. Process Flow Diagrams, P&IDs, Factory Acceptance Tests Operate loss-in-weight programs in batch or continuous mode directly from the bag with central monitoring, communication, and control to improve line efficiency and also reduce material waste. Any Rate, Any Material: Accurate, Automated Material Feed NBE automated bulk bag dischargers fully integrate with downstream processing, packaging, and material transfer systems to enable accurate material feeding, interlocking safety switches, and central systems control. Integrated and Automated Equipment and Controls 3.5-inch bore hydraulic cylinders power two ribbed bag conditioning platens to deliver 28,000 lbs. of force to break up and discharge even the most severely hardened material; well beyond the force of pneumatic bag impactor designs. 28,000 lbs. of Ram Force Two, 6-inch bore pneumatic cylinders drive each of two heavy gauge steel paddles into the bottom, and against the sides of the bag. Over 7 sq. ft of contact surface and a tapered paddle top reach 15ยบ past vertical to aid material flow. 5,400 lbs. of Paddle Pressure The E3 bag spout interface encloses the bag spout and feed tube within a sealed containment cylinder. Material dusting is eliminated and material flow rate is increased through a taut, conical spout shape. Complete, Dust-free, High-speed Material Flow Thick-wall structural tubing and heavy gauge carbon or stainless steel sheet and plate extend process line life cycles and optimize system performance in harsh and sanitary environments. Application-specific Construction "There's no doubt NBE equipment is built to perform. It's been years since our system was installed and I have yet to do any troubleshooting. And, I've had no operator complaints; no complaints is a compliment." Jeff P., Global Transportation Industry "The material we process is extremely sticky and compressed in the bulk bags. We used to manually break it up. Now, the machine does all the work. Material conditioning and flow to our batch mixing is now totally automated."
