Discharging stations for Big Bag and Octabin
OKTOMAT® SOS

The all-rounder among the OKTOMAT® discharging stations

Discharging system for industrial bulk bags with vibrating suction head and oscillating system

The OKTOMAT® SOS Series handles easily and effectively the discharging 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. Automatic controlled lifting and lowering of the suction head for optimum suction conditions in the bulk bag. Oscillation of the foil / BigBag tightener as a flow aid for the bulk material in border areas to achieve a max. emptying capacity.

Materials


OKTOMAT® SOS is ideally suited for the majority of applications.

The OKTOMAT® SOS series is able to empty also problematic materials:

  • regrind
  • free-flowing powders

  • food / salts etc.

Types of bulk bags

For all bulk bags with foil inlet or loops

The OKTOMAT® handles easily and effectively the discharging 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

For all materials up to poorly flowing bulk materials

OKTOMAT® discharging stations are ideally suited for all free-flowing bulk materials. The OKTOMAT®-SOS series is also capable of emptying problematic materials due to its oscillating systems.

Emptying and conveying the following raw materials:

  • Granulates
  • Pellets
  • Regrind
  • Agglomerates
  • Glass fibres
  • Rubber cube
  • Powder
  • WPC
  • Activated carbon
  • Fine resin
  • Food
  • Salts

 

OKTOMAT® in practice

Thousands of OKTOMAT® systems are in use worldwide. Most of them work in 3-shift operation under the hardest conditions in these processes:

  • Injection moulding
  • Extrusion
  • Recycling
  • Compounding
  • Mixing
  • Dosing

Oscillating system

Suction head oscillating system

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.

  1. During suction, a cavity may result in the suction zone underneath the suction head.
  2. The suction head oscillation system raises the suction head. The resulting sinkhole fills up again.
  3. The system lowers the suction head back to the surface and makes it sink down timecontrolled.

Foil / BigBag tightener Oscillating system

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

  1. The border areas do not slip. A deep sinkhole is formed.
  2. The oscillation system lowers the foil / BigBag tightener towards the bulk material surface and the material under pressure in border area will be released.
  3. The suction head is raised and the oscillating system pulls the foil wall upwards. The constricting container wall presses the material walls into the middle and causes them to collapse.
  4. The suction head is lowered again and can suck away more material

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 discharge 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 discharging

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 discharging process, the almost empty bulk bag is automatically lifted up from the bottom, enabling a complete material discharging.
