In this system, raw sugar is unloaded from bulk bags, conveyed to a vibratory screen where it is separated into 3 fractions and one waste fraction, and then re-packaged into bulk bags.
Raw sugar is discharged from bulk bags using a dual bulk bag unloading system. The bulk bags are emptied into a hopper and then conveyed to a bucket elevator using a flexible auger conveyor. The raw sugar is conveyed to the top of the system using a z-style bucket conveyor where it is discharged onto a 3 deck vibratory screen.
The vibratory screen separates, or sifts, the raw sugar into 3 fractions and one waste fraction. Each fraction is conveyed to an automated bulk bag filling station. Each station contains an automated pallet dispenser. Once the bulk bag has been filled to a set target weight, it is conveyed to the end of the roller conveyor where a forklift operator will transport it to shipping, storage, or to downstream bulk processing equipment.
