Flexicon BULK-OUT BFC bulk bag discharging system

Thursday, 21 April, 2022 | Supplied by: Flexicon Corporation (Aust) Pty Ltd


Flexicon's BULK-OUT BFC bulk bag discharging system promotes the flow of bulk solid materials that have solidified during storage and shipment, automatically discharges the material and allows manual additions of ingredients from sacks, drums and other containers.

A cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley lowers a bag lifting frame to floor level for rapid attachment of the bag to patented Z-CLIP bag strap holders, and then hoists and rolls the bag into the safety frame, eliminating the need for a forklift.

The integral conditioner consists of two hydraulically actuated rams with specially contoured conditioning plates that press opposing sides of the bulk bag. A HMI housed in a NEMA 4 enclosure controls the stroke and number of ram actuations.

For bulk bag discharging, the bag outlet spout is pulled through an iris valve mounted atop a dust hood over the hopper. For manual dumping in conjunction with or independent of bulk bag discharging, the operator raises the hinged door and adds the material from smaller capacity containers through a coarse screen into the hopper. A fold-down support tray serves as a bag rest. The hopper can be configured to connect to pneumatic or mechanical conveyors, or directly to downstream process equipment.

The discharger can also be configured for weigh batch discharging with the addition of load cells and a programmable controller.
