Bulk Bag Unloader Eliminates Upper Frame
Flexicon’s new Mobile Half-Frame Bulk Bag Unloader features a multi-purpose hopper that allows material to be discharged from bulk bags, manually dumped from sacks, and conveyed dust free. It also minimizes weight and offers a low center of gravity by eliminating upper frame components, relying instead on a forklift or plant hoist to suspend the bag above the unit.
The interface consists of a Spout-Lock clamp ring positioned atop a pneumatically actuated telescoping tube, which allows dust-tight connections and unrestricted flow between the bag spout and hopper, as well as automatic tensioning of the bag as it empties to promote flow and evacuation. The seal between the bag spout and clamp ring allows full-open discharge from bag spouts of all popular diameters.
In addition, the unit’s Bag-Vac dust collector creates negative pressure within the dust-tight system to collapse empty bags prior to retying and disconnection, which is designed to eliminate dust during manual flattening of empty bags. Units are available in carbon steel with durable industrial coating, or stainless steel to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
