Spirotech-SRD has recently completed a second FIBC big bag discharger for a major hot drinks producer
Spirotech’s customer produces a variety of powdered drink products, including ingredients such as cocoa powder, sugar, coffee and malt, for a range of retail customers. Working alongside Spirotech enabled the company to perfect a FIBC big bag discharger system that met its high quality and safety requirements.
The system consists of a grade 304 stainless steel 1te FIBC bag support stand and discharge hopper capable of storing circa 250kg of product to minimise starvation of product to the downstream packing machine between bag changes. A grade 304 stainless steel screw conveyor and a vibratory sieve make up the system, to allow transfer and sieving from the FIBC discharger to the packing line.

Minimise the possibility of allergen contamination
The remit for the design of the 1 tonne FIBC big bag discharger system was to minimise the possibility of allergen contamination. The system therefore had to be designed for fast, easy disassembly for thorough cleaning purposes with the design including sectionalised FIBC discharger, screw conveyor and sieve with quick release fittings throughout. Each piece of equipment is also independently supported on a stainless steel frame complete with lockable castors to allow easy manoeuvreability to the clients cleaning area.

Metal detectable gaskets
The discharger is fitted throughout with metal detectable gaskets to ensure any gasket failure is detected immediately by the clients own safety system.
