Like Lechler’s other air nozzles, the polypro version is built with 16 distinct air channels into which inlet air is directed from the nozzle-inlet end. The unit can create a blowing force equal to that generated by other methods, but at lower inlet air pressures, thus reducing operating costs. The nozzle blows with directed force and is designed to be quieter than most compressed-air sprayers. The nozzle’s flat configuration allows operators to use it individually or alongside other nozzles on a header to create an air curtain.
National Bulk Equipment
A bulk-bag conditioner is integrated directly into the bulk-bag unloader’s structural framework. This design eliminates the repetitive loading and unloading that freestanding bag conditioners require and reduces the process to a single load–unload cycle. During an 8-h shift, the system’s integrated bag conditioning can increase the total number of bags processed from 12 to 16, according to the company.
The bulk-material handling system is built to handle free-flowing and fine materials, which are common to the pharmaceutical industry. Its dry and liquid product contact areas are constructed of 304–2b stainless steel.
