Dinnissen Process Technology has developed a new version of the classic Dima® 200 bag emptier for safely and efficiently emptying bags filled with fine powders, particles or granulates. The new model, which makes it possible to automatically empty bags while releasing less than 0.1 mg of product per m3 of discharged product, is intended primarily for companies that need to create a safe working environment for their operators in a wide range of sectors.
Fully automatic bag emptier focuses on operator safety
Governments are applying increasingly stringent standards when it comes to the release of fine and ultrafine particles. As a result, companies are also increasingly being confronted with the challenge of having to prevent the release of even very small quantities of fine particles when bags need to be emptied. In response to these requirements, Dinnissen Process Technology has developed a new ultrafine version of the classic Dima® 200 bag emptier. The new ultrafine model can automatically empty even large bags containing very fine particles, including those that are extremely light and/or which pose a dust explosion or other type of hazard. The classic Dima® 200 is fitted with a dust-free handling unit, and bags can automatically be fed into the unit if desired. After the unit is sealed, the emptying process is automatically started whereby the bag, which is suspended by two hooks, is cut in half by a revolving knife. The emptying process is assisted via vibration, after which the empty bags are automatically discharged.
Double filter with powerful suction and special air exhaust seal
The ultrafine Dima® 200 bag emptier was developed by Dinnissen especially for situations in which companies are required to prevent the release of even the smallest quantities of fine particles when bags need to be emptied. This newest version is fitted with a double filter with powerful suction and a special dust-tight seal for the air exhaust. The smoothly polished interior of the unit simplifies cleaning and prevents particles from being left behind in the machine. The design is based on Dinnissen’s easy-to-clean-concept which facilitates quick and efficient cleaning. Finally, the new model works with a fully automated cleaning-in-place concept based on air flow and suction, practically eliminating the need for any human intervention during the cleaning process.
Automated cleaning of bags for improved hygiene
In some situations, very strict standards apply in the area of hygiene and the prevention of contamination in the production process. Dinnissen Process Technology therefore also provides clients with an extra option whereby the bags, after being fed into the ultrafine Dima® 200, are first cleaned with the help of a special 'air knife' before being cut open. After the cleaning process, any dirt and contaminants present are first carefully sucked off and removed, and only then is the bag emptied.
The new ultrafine Dima® 200 has a capacity of between 1 and 120 bags per hour and is presently being used in the feed, food, chemical and pharma sectors.
