Bag Opener

Bag Opener

Bag openers are utilised in the waste reception area of a Materials Recovery Facility to rip open or split bags typically found in municipal household waste. Once emptied the contents are metered evenly onto a conveyor for onward screening and manual or optical sorting

With a Bag Opener materials are separated and prepared for downstream sorting and picking without being shredded into smaller pieces. They are also much more energy efficient when compared to shredders. Bag openers can be also used as dosing hoppers for metering material into a recovery facility.
