Meto’s FIBC Docking System consists of a high-quality stainless steel design with an integrated Iris valve, which is both compact and innovative. This new design can easily and efficiently dock Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers, and provides superior material flow control. The new design also features an inflatable seal system which ensures a contained transfer of product. The discharge system allows for the docking assembly to be mounted directly on the downstream equipment for gravity discharge. Coupled with a METOLIFT column lifter, the system can reduce the amount of handling and time required to position and discharge the FIBC. This also allows for reduction in cleaning and maintenance costs as well as the amount of required installation space.
