Bag Handling Systems

Ingredient Solutions Bag Handling Systems provide several options for handling ingredients received in small bags, boxes, drums, and other containers. Whether you desire to empty ingredients into storage bins, or directly into your process, Ingredient Solutions can design a Bag Handling System to provide a dust free and ergonomic solution for handling your ingredients.

Ingredient Solutions dumping stations, and tipping stations, offer the solution for efficiently unloading micro and minor ingredients.  Integral dust collection can be incorporated to provide a dust-free environment for your operators and to comply with OSHA requirements relating to migrant dust. Magnets, metal detection and screening options provide a high level of quality assurance for ingredients received from outside suppliers.

Bulk Bag Unloading Systems

Ingredient Solutions Bulk Bag Unloading Systems provide an efficient means for handling ingredients received in bulk bags.  Our Bulk Bag Unloaders are designed for various sized bulk bags, and can be loaded by either fork lift, or powered hoist and trolley.  An untie hopper mounted below the bag rest platform allows the untying of bulk bags and discharging ingredients, while maintaining a clean environment. Optional bag massagers provide assistance with the conditioning and discharge of ingredients from bulk bags.

When equipped with a powered hoist, bulk bags are loaded using a heavy-duty bag lifting frame.  The lifting frame is equipped with hooks to allow the fastening of the bag lifting loops onto the lifting frame. Where required, a liner clip is included to allow the capturing of the bag liner to prevent it from falling from the bulk bag.

Where ceiling height is limited, a low-profile frame design is available. The frame includes a removable upper frame section allowing floor level loading of bulk bags.  Once the bag has been loaded, the upper frame section is raised into position and set on the lower frame.
