The dust hood for Company's bulk bag dischargers contains spillage and dust that can escape through seams in the bag and folds in the spout. The six-sided enclosure sits against the rim of a hopper or flange of downstream equipment, and is equipped with an exhaust port for dust collection and a hinged door with an inspection window. The enclosure contains incidental leakage of fine powders from seams in the bag, as well as material released from bag spout folds during connection and disconnection activities. Associated dust is vented through the sidewall-mounted port to an optional dust collector or plant bag house, preventing contamination of the environment.
