Single Column Bulk Bag Hoist

Bulk Bag Hoist Description

SPL/1000/4750/180º/B

This Bulk Bag Hoist is designed to lift a 1000 Kgs Bulk Bag to a height of 4750mm. The Bulk Bag Hoist would be constructed from Grade 304 stainless steel with a DP180 Grit brushed finish. The Bulk Bag Hoist would be bolted to the floor and would be braced above the machine to a substantial structure. The Bulk Bag was loaded onto the lifting forks and then lifted and lowered using a ball screw and motor gearbox mounted at the top of the main column. The electrical motor gearbox was fitted with a 3 Phase 415 V quick acting brake that was separately excited and powered to release. The ball screw was a 50mm diameter x 20mm pitch rolled ball screw with an appropriate lifting nut. There was a second motor gearbox that rotated the Bulk Bag at the full up position either 90 degrees clockwise or anti-clockwise. Both the Main Control Panel and the Push Button Station were Stainless Steel enclosures with an IP65 Ingress Protection Rating. All lubricants or greases used on the Bulk Bag Hoist were FDA approved.

Bulk Bag Hoist Application Story

This Bulk Bag Hoist was required to raise and lower a Bulk Bag from floor level to discharge into a Blender at a height of 4750mm. The Bulk Bag was loaded onto the lifting forks and raised to the appropriate height before being rotated through 90 degrees over the top of blender. The Bulk Bag Hoist was installed into a food/pharmaceutical environment so a hygienic design was essential.
