Bulk Bag Handling systems are typically used for the handling of one tonne bulk bags, also known as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC). 

The process of emptying a bulk bag can be cumbersome; a bulk bag discharger offers structural support to simplify this process, allowing for the bulk bag to be easily opened and the product added into the process plant.

A Bulk Bag Discharger consists of a support frame, a lifting hoist and product chute. The bulk bag is lifted from the floor and positioned onto a receiving chute. The bulk bag is then manually opened using a rip-cord, emptying the product into the chute. With the use of slide gates/valves, the rate of flow of product into the system can be regulated and controlled.
