AST Receiving station: PROVEN MANY TIMES!

Our AST receiving station was developed for the beverage industry. It is robust and reliable and ensures maximum emptying capacity for bagged goods and big bags. With the wide and precisely adjustable dosing range, the downstream process steps, such as dissolving systems, are then optimally supplied – even if you are using hygroscopic, sensitive or abrasive products. The receiving stations of the AST series can be used for both batch and continuous operation of your dissolving system. It is loaded with a forklift or an electric chain hoist. Aspiration filters are optionally available.  Whether for the food or the non-food sector: our receiving stations are always designed and manufactured for specific applications and for optimised operational safety and economic efficiency.  The receiving station is FDA-compliant, available in an ATEX version and with an EN1935/2004 certificate.

Our Service:

Trials of the unloading of big bags in our pilot plant.  This gives you confidence, even with new products where there is no empirical data.

Our engineering and consulting team will support you with expertise on all questions about emptying sacks and big bags, plant construction, assembly and commissioning in both new projects and for improvements to existing production plants.
