A new Flexicon Mobile Bulk Bag Discharger with Mobile Flexible Screw Conveyor from Flexicon (Bethlehem, PA) 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 36 in. to 84 in. (914 to 2134 mm) 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 TELE-TUBE 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.
Additional flow is afforded by FLOW-FLEXER bag activators that raise and lower opposite bottom sides of the bag at timed intervals into a steep “V” shape, and top-mounted POP-TOP extension devices that elongate the entire bag, promoting total discharge with no manual intervention.
