Bulk Bag Conditioner Loosens Solidified Materials
Flexicon offers the new Block-Buster Bulk Bag Conditioner, made to loosen material that has solidified during storage and shipment and allow bulk bag unloaders to discharge it through bag spouts. The conditioner features two hydraulic rams, specially contoured end plates, and a cantilevered I-beam with a motorized hoist and trolley that facilitates loading and unloading of bulk bags without a forklift.
The system controller and hydraulic pump can be mounted on the exterior of the safety cage or remotely. The conditioner is fully enclosed on all four sides for operator safety and includes full-height doors that are interlocked to prevent operation while the doors are open. It is suited for bags containing hygroscopic chemicals, certain spice blends, heat-sensitive products, and other materials prone to solidifying.
An optional hydraulically-actuated, variable-height turntable enables automated in-frame bag rotation and conditioning of bulk bags at varying heights. Users are able to program the number and pressure of hydraulic ram actuations, the height of the turntable, and the number of 90-degree rotations. The conditioner is offered as a standalone unit or integrated with the company's Bulk-Out bulk bag discharging systems.
