Optional functions

Fluidization

For loosening up compacted bulk material, compressed air can be injected to fluidize the material to be sucked off.

  • available for suction head SM-80 and XL-80 only
  • separate control with two independent pneumatic circuits

OKTOMAT® SOS  OKTOMAT® SOS Classic

Emptying

In order to be able to empty the pipeline after each conveying process (e. g. in the case of long rising pipes), the suction head is raised above the bulk material level in the container when a signal is received from a conveyor control system and the pipeline is emptied.

OKTOMAT® SOS  OKTOMAT® SOS Classic

Oscillating system for suction head

The suction head enters vibrating into the material, is pulled up again in a time-controlled manner (the resulting sinkhole in the material fills up), is then lowered back onto the surface and the procedure starts again. The oscillation, stroke, lifting force and sequence of short or long strokes are individually adjustable.

OKTOMAT® SOS  OKTOMAT® SOS Classic

Oscillating system for foil / big bag tightener

In case of very bridging materials, a non-slip wall may occur during the suction process. By repeated lowering and lifting of the foil / big bag tightener during suction, the material wall will be loosened, thus enabling the material to flow towards the suction point.

  • Standard pipe elbow
    material stainless steel 1.4301
  • Stainless steel pipe elbow (hardened) wear-resistant
  • Glass pipe elbow highly wear-resistant

for all OKTOMAT® types

Additional weight

The additional weight increases the contact weight of the suction head on the bulk material and thus helps to enter into the bulk material.

  • available for suction head S38 / S45 / S50 only
  • + 4 kg bearing weight

Cantilever arm

If filling into another container is carried out directly at the emptying point, a hopper loader with an outlet valve can be installed when using a cantilever arm. Different mounting options for the hopper loader are available.

for all OKTOMAT® types

Enshrouding with dry air

Breaks in production with open containers are a quality risk for the bulk material: it threatens to remoisten. Dry air circulation / coating impedes moisture absorption from the ambient air. Dry air is blown into the container via the suction head and the moist ambient air is displaced.

Protection cover

Ø 1200 mm / Ø 1600 mm

Cover for containers + foil/big bag tightener
PVC, transparent with zipper

for all OKTOMAT® types

Not suitable for ATEX applications!

Systems

Double station

As soon as an empty signal is received from the ECO / SOS / OKTOBAG® control, the conveying is switched on to the next full container via pneumatic ball valves.

  • Any number of OKTOMAT® stations can be combined.
  • Ideal for unmanned shifts

suitable for all OKTOMAT® types
