Emptying stations for Octabin and Big Bag
OKTOMAT® ECO

The basic emptying station for the most common bulk materials

Emptying system with vibrating suction head and automatic bag tightener

The OKTOMAT® ECO Series handles easily and effectively the emptying of all common types of BigBags, octabins, folding boxes, lattice boxes, bulk bags with foil inlet, etc. Simply use a pallet jack to move the bulk bags, clamp the foil and the suction will follow without supervision and risk of interruption. The bulk bags will be completely emptied.

Materials


OKTOMAT® ECO is ideally suited for the majority of applications. It handles the emptying of free-flowing to poorly flowable materials. For more difficult tasks, the discharge station can be extended with options.

Types of bulk bags

Applicable for all bulk bag types

The OKTOMAT® handles easily and effectively the emptying of all common types of BigBags, octobins, folding boxes, lattice boxes, bulk bags with foil inlet, etc.

Just pallet jack will do

Simply use a pallet jack to move the bulk bags, clamp the foil and the suction will follow without supervision and risk of interruption. The bulk bags will be compeltely emptied.

Bulk material in all variations

Container height

In order to achieve complete emptying, there must be a minimum distance of 1500 mm between the top edge of the container and the top edge of the emptying station.

Vibrating suction head

The OKTOMAT® uses a vibrating suction head instead of the suction pipe and the automatic bag tightening mechanism pulls the foil inlet or BigBag upwards. The suction head floats and vibrates in the material and breaks uplumps. The loosened material flows towards the middle and is continuously sucked.

 

Automatic complete emptying

1. During the suction process, the flexible bulk bag wall is pulled up and inwards via the automatic bag tightening system.

 

2. As a result, the bag tightens and the bulk material in the border area flows to the central suction point.

 

3. At the end of the emptying process, the almost empty bulk bag is automatically lifted up from the bottom, enabling a complete material discharging.
