Food & Dry Ingredient Handling

National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) - Ingredient & Product Handling Equipment Product Image

National Bulk Equipment (NBE) supplies a range of bulk handling systems, including bulk bag dischargers, drum dischargers, bag break stations and related handling equipment for dry powders and ingredients. NBE bulk bag discharger systems are designed for rigorous duty in critical applications. Every NBE bulk bag discharging system, regardless of it's particular design or application, operates on a process-specific, fully welded structural framework chassis; unlike the bolt-together unloader designs typical in the market.

See the Food & Dry Ingredient Handling page on this company's website.

Types of Food & Dry Ingredient Handling

  • Bulk Handling & Weighing Equipment
  • Dry Product Feeders
  • Dumping Stations


  • Dry process
  • Hygienic (low-moisture)

Food & Beverage Processing Equipment

NBE dry bulk material mixing systems include Quick Mixer top-loading bulk material systems employing vertical-auger mixers and Jumbo Whirlwind Mixers, designed as bottom-load mixers for batch mixing applications. Bulk mixers are engineered and manufactured specifically for industrial and commercial applications where processing operations require thorough and homogeneous mixing of dry materials. From batch mixing systems, to full-scales continuous mixing operations, the NBE line of mixers delivers fast and complete mixing of powders, pellets, granules, and other dry solids in bulk material mixing applications.

National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) - Conveyors Product Image

National Bulk Equipment (NBE) supplies conveying systems for the effective transfer, handling, and infeed of dry bulk materials including flexible screw conveyors as well infeed conveyors used in palletized bag emptying applications. NBE flexible screw conveyor systems are engineered, constructed, and applied based on the specific performance requirements of each application, such as: conveying rate, angle, distance, material flow characteristics, upstream and downstream equipment integration, and automation. Flexible screw conveyors handle a wide range of applications in processing and packaging operations for free-flowing and semi-free flowing products (powders, grains, salt, grains, rice, plastic regrind). NBE’s system for automated emptying of palletized bags eliminates the manual opening and emptying of palletized multiwall bags during processing, reducing risk of injury to operators.

Types of Conveyor

  • Infeed & Discharge Conveyors
  • Screw Conveyors


  • Hygienic (low-moisture)
  • Incline/decline
  • Packages
  • Raw product
  • Steel

Specialty Equipment

Pallet Conveying, Dispensers & Slip Sheets

National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE) - Pallet Conveying, Dispensers & Slip Sheets Product Image

National Bulk Equipment (NBE) recently executed a pallet handling conveyor project, which leverages an application-specific controls and automation architecture developed during NBE. The NBE chain-drive live roller conveyor (CDLR) system, together with each of the eight gaylord filling stations, are controlled from a single, menu-driven, touchscreen HMI. Each gaylord filling station has an integrated, automated weigh scale system. As each gaylord is automatically filled to within 5% of the target fill weight, densification occurs evenly throughout the entire pallet to establish a base fill volume per gaylord. This NBE pallet handling conveyor project contributes to increased processing efficiencies by reducing material waste, optimizing line speed and capacity, and helping to provide a safe operator work environment.

National Bulk Equipment dry bulk material storage systems enable processing operations to efficiently and profitably manage the procurement, transport, storage, and line introduction of bulk dry material assets. Large-capacity silos, to small-volume mobile storage hoppers; NBE bulk material storage systems ensure optimal use of limited production floorspace. Costly bulk process materials are also protected from contamination and degradation. NBE stationary and portable surge bins, mobile storage hoppers, and bulk material storage silos are engineered to improve total process effectiveness; whether in a fully integrated, high-volume, multi-point infeed application or a small-scale batching process.
