Diverse discharging configurations
Depending on your needs, the operating environment, the bigbag type and size and the specific characteristics of the material to be unloaded—whether prone to bulging or caking—we offer different options, such as: epoxy paint or full stainless steel construction, ATEX compliance, de-weighing, traceability, devices to enhance product extraction, dust control, connection to buffer storage or transfer system, etc.
Your partner for bulk bag deconditioning
With decades of expertise in bigbag filling and emptying, Mecabag System has developed a comprehensive range of modular and flexible dischargers, spanning standard models to sophisticated unloading systems, to maximize operational efficiency while guaranteeing safety and ergonomics for your teams.
Frame with forks or hoist
Tailored to your requirements and specific applications, our emptying station frame can either be equipped with self-lifting forks for thorough bigbag emptying or with a monorail fitted with a hoist and spreader bar. In the forked configuration, bigbags are positioned using a stacker or forklift. The adjustable nature of the forks allows compatibility with multiple bigbag sizes.
