The Gericke Sack Tipping units can be combined and integrated with other Gericke equipment, such as nibblers, rotary valves, sieving or conveying systems. Also the combination with big bag stations is possible for more flexibility.
Semi automatic sack opening systems additionally improve workplace ergonomics and safety.
Principle of operation
The operator places the sack onto a rest platform, which is enclosed within an extracted cabinet. The bag is cut open and the contents tipped into a surge hopper or directly into process machinery. The laminar flow within the station provided by an extract fan ensures that the dust laden air is carried way from the operator and back into the enclosure.
The air is filtered through porous cartridge elements, which are cleaned by an automatic, compressed air, reverse jet arrangement. These jets are operated only when the main door is closed and contacts a position sensing switch. This feature provides the operator with additional protection from exposure to dust clouds.
