New bulk bag unloader

The new AFC BBU II bulk bag unloading station features a proprietary design that promotes the smooth, consistent, complete discharge of non-free flowing materials such as whey protein powder, carbon black, bentonite clay, titanium dioxide, and other bulk materials. This design uses dual, pneumatic steel paddles to gently coax the material through a new, extended neck connection inside an easy access, oversized tie box, ensuring complete discharge while any potential dust particles are automatically captured by a built-in vacuum system to prevent release to the workplace.

Safe and sustainable lubricants

A blown hose spewing a petroleum-based lubricant around a food processing plant could be disastrous. That’s not the case with food grade hydraulic fluids. Bio-Food Grade Hydraulic Fluids for food and beverage processing equipment are multi-functional, biobased formulations that include ingredients that are Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS), contain no VOCs and are safer for employees and the environment. Available in ISO viscosity grades 15 and 22, they meet or exceed the requirements for food grade lubricating oils for use on food processing equipment. They are acceptable as lubricants with incidental food contact (H1) for use in and around food processing areas. Plus, there’s a sustainability aspect: They’re formulated from renewable agricultural plant resources.

New bagger accessories and resources 

A motorized adjustable height stand for automatic tabletop-style bagging machines adjusts the bagger height from 22 to 34 inches. This allows the operator to adjust the baggers seal height and loading height with the push of a button to best suit the operator and is more ergonomic than fixed height stands.
