Ross introduces ergonomic bag unloading station

Ross introduced custom blending systems that incorporate ergonomic material handling accessories, including bag dump workstations.

Ross (Port St. Lucie, FL) introduced custom blending systems that incorporate ergonomic material handling accessories, including bag dump workstations, so an operator can safely empty bags of powder through a bar grating while a contiguous vibrating tray assembly catches foreign debris and off-spec ingredients. 

The custom cover is available on all Ribbon Blenders. Model 42N-18SS utilizes safety-limit switches that prevent operation of the agitator if any access ports are open or if the grating is removed. All surfaces are stainless steel, polished to 150-grit sanitary finish, and the blender features a sanitary 4-inch spherical disc discharge valve with pneumatic actuator. Ross supplied UL-listed operator controls in a NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure with 3R fan shrouds, variable frequency drive, digital speed and amperage readouts, dial-type potentiometer, cycle timer, and E-Stop.
