Sanitary Bag Dump Stations
Safe Product Introduction with Compliance Confidence
Whether used for the continuous introduction of primary ingredients, or for the periodic introduction of minor ingredients, NBE sanitary bag dump stations are designed and constructed to ensure the highest confidence in product safety. The application-specific design and construction of NBE sanitary bag dump stations focuses on preventing in-use material accumulation so as to reduce cleaning and validation times during scheduled maintenance events or product changeovers. NBE sanitary bag dump stations provide optimal compliance contribution (OCC) by delivering:
- Improved labor efficiency
- Minimized consumables use
- Protection of operations and inspection personnel
- Repeated validation and inspection compliance
- Alignment with sanitary facility design principles
Producing Specifications Beyond the Standards
Materials of Construction
Specifying the appropriate materials of construction for each NBE sanitary bag dump station requires a multi-disciplinary perspective. NBE applications and process engineers, and design and mechanical engineers assess multiple, application-specific criteria to ensure the NBE sanitary bag dump station delivers exceptional in-use performance and optimal compliance contribution (OCC).

32 Ra Finish on Internal and External Welds
No. 4 Finish on continuous-weld seams eliminates ripples, pits, and crevices; improves product release, cleanability, and inspection reliability.
Contaminant Protection & Abatement
NBE sanitary bag dump stations are engineered and fabricated to comply with the stringent product safety requirements of hygienic production and processing applications. Designed to reduce the likelihood of material accumulation, and simplify material removal and verification, NBE sanitary bag dump stations provide product safety confidence to sanitary processing and packaging operations.
The application-specific design of NBE sanitary bag dump stations goes beyond the ability of re-purposed, standard bag dump stations to provide dry materials processing operations reduced cleaning time targets, and the reliable, repeatable cleaning and validation necessary to support good manufacturing practices (GMP).
Migrant materials, such as powders, dusts, and microbes are a common occurrence in sanitary bag dump applications. Inherent in the design and construction of NBE sanitary bag dump stations are features to simplify physical access for cleaning and visual access for validation and inspection to internal, external, and enclosed areas where migrant contaminants could harbor.
