Bag Unloading

Appcon offers a variety of bag unloading solutions for an array of processing environments and dry bulk material handling applications.


In numerous facilities across the world, dry bulk materials and powders are received in smaller paper bags (usually 30-50 pounds) and/or super sacks or bulk bags (usually 1000-3000 pounds). It is imperative that operators delivering product from these containers into facility process have access to equipment that allows them to execute daily duties without risk of injury, while also providing an effective and efficient means of material introduction. 


Our years of experience in the field and extensive understanding of industrial process bag unloading have equipped us with the knowledge and expertise to assess your application and choose the solution that best suits your needs. Appcon has experience handling a wide variety of powders across the food, dairy, chemical, and plastics industry.
