Flexicon's new 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 Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) housed in a NEMA 4 (IP 56) enclosure controls the stroke and number of ram actuations. The electric hoist can be used to raise and lower the bag for conditioning at varying heights.

Models are available in carbon steel with durable industrial coating and stainless-steel material contact points, or in all stainless steel finished to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
