Flexicon introduces new mobile bulk bag discharger

July 28, 2021   by Food in Canada staff


A new Flexicon mobile bulk bag discharger with mobile flexible screw conveyor allows dust-free discharging of bulk solid materials and conveying to downstream process equipment or storage vessels throughout the plant.

Mounted on locking casters, the Bulk-Out BFF Series discharger has four adjustable extension posts to accommodate bulk bags of 36 to 84-in. tall. The removable bag-lifting frame with z-clip strap holders allows bulk bags to be attached at ground level, then forklifted into receiving cups on the discharger frame.

A spout-lock clamp ring atop a pneumatically-actuated telescoping tube secures the clean side of bag spout to the clean side of the equipment, and exerts continuous downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates, promoting flow and evacuation. A vent port with filter sock contains dust.

The entire unit can be rolled to a cleaning station. The system is available in carbon steel with industrial coating and stainless steel material contact surfaces, or in all-stainless steel finished to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
