Flexicon BULK-OUT BFF Series bulk bag discharger

Tuesday, 26 October, 2021 | Supplied by: Flexicon Corporation (Aust) Pty Ltd


Flexicon has released a mobile bulk bag discharger with mobile flexible screw conveyor that allows for dust-free discharging of bulk solid materials and conveying to downstream process equipment or storage vessels throughout a plant.

Mounted on locking castors, the BULK-OUT BFF Series discharger has four adjustable extension posts to accommodate bulk bags 915 to 2135 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 the 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.

The discharge housing of the mobile flexible screw conveyor is supported by a mast affixed to the mobile discharger frame, allowing the transfer of free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials to multiple destinations. The flexible screw is the only moving part contacting material and is driven by an electric motor beyond the point at which material is discharged, preventing material contact with seals.
