Complying with FDA requirements, the sanitary AFC BBU features 316L stainless steel frame construction, continuously welded seams, food-grade drive lubricant, and a surface finish polished to an Ra ≤ 0.8 μm.

Ideal for food, petfood, pharmaceutical, and nutritional product manufacturers, the AFC BBU automatically unloads bulk bags containing up to 4,000 lbs. of powders, pellets, granules, and other bulk ingredients for contained discharge into a hopper, conveyor or other location. The dust-tight bulk bag discharger may be custom-configured in nearly any size to accommodate any hygienic processing application.
