Manual and Automatic Bulk Bag Unloading Equipment

Erie Technical Systems manufactures manual and automatic equipment for unloading bulk bags as well as filling them. Our Bulk Bag Unloaders, also called Bulk Bag Dischargers, can be used to dispense bulk material out of a variety of bulk bags. Our quality support frames can hold bulk bags up to 5,000 pounds with bulk bag sizes meeting your requirements. These Bulk Bag Dischargers are available using a simple bulk bag hanging frame to support the bag which is lifted into place with a forklift, or with a hoist and trolley system that meets your needs. Once the bag is in place, the operator can untie the bottom of the bulk bag in a dust tight environment and control it either manually or automatically.
