Product Announcement from National Bulk Equipment, Inc.
NBE introduces a sanitary tote dumper designed specifically for food processing and pharmaceutical processing applications where compliance with FDA, USDA, 3-A, BISSC, or international standards is required. This NBE sanitary bulk tote dumper also supports process practice protocols where 3-A Accepted Practices or other cGMPs are necessary. Beyond simply adapting a general-industry tote dumper design, as is common in the marketplace, this NBE application-specific, sanitary tote dumper design includes CIP features, such as: 304-2b stainless steel framework, sheet and plate, and components, all with continuous-weld seams ground to a No. 4 finish; a fully enclosed, 304-2b stainless steel, hydraulic pump cabinet with viewing window and tool-less access; non-metal components that provide excellent resistance to corrosive materials and high-temperature, high-pressure, highly aggressive cleaning; 32 Ra component surface finishes; and, tool-less, quick-clean clamps to speed component dis-assembly and simplify sanitizing and inspection.
The performance specifications of this NBE sanitary bulk tote dumper include container carriage capacities from 750 to 16,000 pounds; custom-designed discharge hoods; and fully integrated automation and controls, centralized to a single, menu-driven, UL listed HMI, designed and built by NBE.
