Unifi, developer and producer of REPREVE® recycled fiber, creates plastic flake from the millions of plastic water bottles used every day. Spiroflow helped them develop a line to fill & recirculate plastic flake into large mixing silos & also convey flake onto the next step in their manufacturing process. This system included a box dumper, two (2) bulk bag unloaders, five (5) flexible screw conveyors, four (4) aero mechanical conveyors, a hopper & a comprehensive custom control panel.
Spiroflow offers the GD-53 Gaylord box dumper for Gaylords up to 48” x 48” and maximum load 2,500 lb. Standardized hydraulic dumper assemblies are designed to rotate and empty the contents of Gaylord type containers, boxes, tubs or carts. Each hydraulic box dumper unit is shipped fully assembled and ready for operation. Other sizes are available.
Not all materials flow freely from a hopper, storage silo, bin or other container. Spiroflow offers a wide selection of flow promoters to suit the characteristics of various materials. Our experience over many years has shown that the great majority of handling problems can be solved with their use.
