Two cities, one in the United States and the other in Canada, over 700 miles (1100 km) apart, were experiencing nearly identical problems caused by manual addition of powdered activated carbon to their municipal water treatment systems. Both cities not only eliminated a health hazard caused by carbon powder dust, but also reduced the amount of labor required to add powdered activated carbon to the system by installing a bulk bag unloading system.

At both facilities, installation of an automated bulk bag unloading and feeding system eliminated dust caused by untying, discharging, collapsing and removing individual small bags while increasing operator safety and reducing manual labor. The Flexicon bulk bag dischargers incorporate devices that contain dust and promote complete discharge.
