EIGHT advantages, ONE smart solution
Once your positive displacement diaphragm or piston pump empties 65% - 85% of product from your intermediate bulk container’s (IBC) inner liner, a push of a button engages the Xtrakt™ system’s drive unit to help complete the extraction.
Typical IBC extraction requires manual tugging, twisting, lifting or tilting of the liner, putting workers at risk for injury. Xtrakt™ is a hands-free system.
Standard liners may tear under stress. ILC Dover’s flexible liner offers double-wall strength and texturing tailored to wring and recover more residual product.
The Xtrakt™ system components, rugged drive unit and pneumatic control system reside on a deployment cart which is easily moved within the facility.
As the drive unit is activated, it tensions the dual-wall liner and begins to crawl down the bag, continuing to present liquid to the pump to support full discharge.
Designed to shut down once it reaches the bottom of each liner, the Xtrakt™ drive unit help dispense all but 2 kg or less of product.
A facility processing 5,000 liners a year (1,000 kg of product/liner) experiences about 15 kg of residual product loss/liner, or 75,000 kg of product lost annually.
Because the Xtrakt™ System’s automated recovery of residual products eliminates the need for worker intervention during discharge, the risk of an injury and worker’s compensation claims are reduced. And the empty, single-use liners are stackable for easy disposal.
Economics Favor the XtraktTM System
Compared to even the best air-assisted discharge systems, the Xtrakt system offers substantial cost savings and a fast return on investment because the Xtrakt system reduces:
- Residual Product Loss
- Labor Associated with Attempted Recovery of Residual
- Disposal Costs for Unrecovered Residual Product
The Xtrakt system’s design and hands-off operation also offer the potential to substantially lower operator lost time and worker’s compensation claims.
With all of these advantages, the Xtrakt system can significantly increase operational profitability for any firm conveying viscous liquids.reduces the time needed for changeover, lowers staff costs, and frees staff to work on more vital jobs, which all contribute to profitability.
