Bin Docking station

Bin Docking station

              Description I-Pharma emptying station.                          

The system is composed of a square/rectangular frame depends of the bin’s  foot print,  it’s can be easily placed through 4 centering cups and 2 pins where the bin will be centered with high accuracy.

A conical discharge hopper is located in the middle of the station and the dust tight connection between the bin butterfly valve and the hopper is assured by:

  • Silicon gasket compressed by the weight of the bin.
  • Hopper with the special gasket where the gasket it’s sealed to the valve’s flange.

The hopper can be supplied with a manual or automatic closing lid.

Manual or fully automatic, charging and discharging stations can incorporate a number of different options:

  • Vibration for difficult flowing products.
  • Electrical or pneumatic opening and closing valve.
