Main characteristics of the equipment

PALAMATIC PROCESS bag openers (also known as manual bag dump station or manual dumping stations) are designed to significantly reduce the air pollution hazards from dust emissions during the manual process of opening and emptying sacks.

Manual sack opening system model/ Bag dump station 800 mm 1000 mm 1200 mm 1400 mm
Length of the sacks 650 mm 850 mm 1050 mm 1250 mm
Rate expected for connection to dust collection  800 m³/h. 1000 m³/h. 1200 m³/h.  1400 m³/h.
Hopper volume 103 liters 173 liters 236 liters 370 liters

Operating mode

The operator places the bag on a tray manually or using a vacuum tube lifter and position it on the screen situated above the discharge hopper.

The cutting operation performed, the operator opens the door and shake the empty bag. The bag is evacuated through the compactor, which reduces the volume of waste in a polyethylene sheath and eliminates rejection in the workshop of any residual dust in the bags.

palamatic vibratory screener

Vibratory screen integrated

Directly implanted under the screen, the vibratory sifter provides continuous control of the product. The discharge chute is connected to the vibrating sieve via a flexible spout ensuring sealing.
By design, the vibrating sifter does not have retention areas and its mounting by dual flanges and gaskets ensures easy and high-quality assembly and disassembly.

Integrated lump breaker

Our lump breakers are the ideal solution for the crushing of materials that tend to form lumps.
The device enables to break the lumps that develop during the process of production or transportation of friable materials in powder or grain.


sack compactor

Sack compactor

The sack compactor PALAMATIC enables to reduce waste and maintains a healthy, dust-free environment. It can be mounted on one side or the other of the hopper.

industrial round dust collector

Dust collecting

PALAMATIC provides on its sack dumping units dust extraction devices with integrated unclogging system set up at the top of unit.
The dust collector will keep a dust-free work environment and effectively protect the operator. The dedusting unIt can be provided as an independant or integrated device equipped with a dust collection hopper connected to a clamped bucket.
