National Bulk Equipment, Inc.  

Holland,  MI 
United States
  • Booth: 1733

National Bulk Equipment (NBE) engineers, manufactures, installs, and commissions equipment, systems, and fullstream projects for processing and packaging of dry and liquid bulk materials. NBE bulk material handling applications include: discharging, filling, conveying, mixing, storage, reclamation, and infeed. The NBE engineer-to-application (ETA) project delivery method moves beyond constraints of build-to-order machine manufacturers. ETA project delivery enables project owners, OEMs, and AECs to have confidence in the mutually defined expectations and tangible performance benefits inherent in ETA projects delivered by NBE. National Bulk Equipment is a portfolio company of NBE Holdings Company, based in Holland, Michigan.


Bulk Bag Discharging Sanitary Process Applications


  • Bulk Container Filling Systems
    Bulk Container Filling Systems Improve Rate, Throughput, and Availability of Bulk Packaging Lines....

  • The reliable, repeatable, and accurate filled container weights produced by NBE bulk container filling systems improve the availability, rate, and throughput of bulk material processing and packaging operations. NBE bulk container filling systems are engineered to the specific performance requirements of each application. Whether filling rigid totes, lined gaylords, or multiple drums on a single pallet, NBE bulk container filling systems always deliver process performance advantages.

    The market-dominant materials of construction and build specifications of NBE bulk container filling systems easily withstand severe operating environments and demanding duty cycles. Regardless of process material characteristics, fill rate, or container type, NBE bulk container filling systems enable bulk material processing operations to maintain designed line speeds, throughput, and yield.

  • Flexible Screw Conveyor Systems
    Flexible Screw Conveyor Systems Improve Run Time Performance; Reduce Maintenance and Repair....

  • NBE flexible screw conveyor systems are engineered, constructed, and applied to processing and packaging operations based on the specific performance requirements of each application, including: conveying rate, angle and distance, material flow characteristics, upstream and downstream equipment integration, and automation.

    NBE flexible screw conveying systems leverage the resources of NBE engineered-to-application project delivery to ensure fast response and optimal effectiveness are not mutually exclusive. Avoid the risks of force-fit stock, avoid the delays of assembling and wiring a delivery of parts and pieces. NBE flexible screw conveying systems provide sustained conveying performance, at designed capacities, of the most demanding materials and bulk densities.

  • Bulk Bag Discharging Systems
    Bulk Bag Discharging Systems Ensure Reliable Downstream Material Supply....

  • Engineered-to-application bulk bag discharging systems from NBE provide optimal material infeed supply to downstream process operations. NBE looks downstream, and upstream, to ensure the integration of NBE bulk bag discharging systems to material conveying and processing interfaces work to improve material introduction efficiency and material supply accuracy.

    Every NBE bulk bag discharging system, regardless of its particular design or application, operates on a process-specific, fully welded structural framework chassis; unlike the bolt-together unloader designs typical in the market. This NBE integrated construction and controls infrastructure speeds installation and commissioning and provides the basis for reduced total cost of ownership and improved operator efficiency.

  • Single-packed Product Reclaim
    Automated, High-speed Recovery of Unsalable, Single-packed Product and Packaging....

  • NBE single-pack reclamation systems provide brand owners and contract packagers automated, adaptable, and effective methods for recovering contents and packaging when upstream factors result in off-spec, mis-labeled, over-run, or unsalable packs. NBE single-pack reclamation systems are engineered-to-application (ETA) based on unique functional requirements, automation specifications, and effectiveness measures of the application.

    From stick packs, sachets, or gusseted packs to pouches or pillow packs; from food and beverage, pharma, or personal care products to household or commercial products, NBE single-pack reclaim systems safely reduce product and packaging material waste.

  • Palletized Bag Emptying and Infeed
    Palletized Bag Emptying and Material Infeed Performance Ensures Fullstream Process Confidence....

  • NBE palletized bag emptying and material infeed systems bring to processing and production operations performance-proven advantages not feasible from off-the-shelf or manual debagging methods. NBE automated, multiwall bag emptying and material input systems are individually engineered-to-application (ETA). Regardless of complex functional specifications or particular automation requirements, NBE palletized bag emptying and infeed systems ensure consistent and accurate material supply to continuous or batch process applications.

    Material waste and product contamination, common with build-to-ship designs or hand-fed units, are reduced or eliminated due to the process-specific engineering and integration of NBE palletized, multiwall bag emptying and material infeed equipment.
