The Benefits You Can Expect
- A self-centering system that can tolerate inaccurate positioning
- A low-level configuration that is suitable to rooms with low ceilings
- Dust-free discharging that reduces the need for zone definition or ATEX rating
- Quick-release connectors that make it easy to disassemble and clean containers
How AZO's Docking System Works
Once the BATCHTAINER® is positioned under the docking point, it is lowered or the container is automatically lifted so the docking device’s outlet and the container’s inlet interlock. Using compressed air, the outlet cone above the container presses the spring-loaded closure of the BATCHTAINER® down. This opens the BATCHTAINER inlet, and the bulk material is discharged into it.
After filling, the upper docking unit is raised, sealing the closure taper in the container again. It’s then that the BATCHTAINER can be moved to a discharge station. Compressed air opens the outlet cone and the product — through an intermittent opening — is discharged to the next processing step.
