BHS Bag Breaker®

The BHS Bag Breaker® is a highly effective bag-opening technology that eliminates the need for manual bag openers. Several years of product development led to the innovation of this patented system. Bagged material is fed into the BHS Bag Breaker® with an in-feed conveyor to achieve an evenly-metered flow rate. Large, counter-rotating drums effectively open the bags and release the contents, which are discharged from the bottom of the machine. The BHS Bag Breaker® is designed to process the materials without damaging the commodities.

Benefits

  • Higher processing capacity than manual sorters
  • Low maintenance and operational costs
  • Easy to retrofit into existing facility
  • Does not damage bagged contents
  • Clean-out doors on two sides for easy access and maintenance
  • Heavy-duty construction for decreased downtime and long operating life
