Flexicon Corporation: Flexicon Corporation: Sanitary bulk bag unloading

A new sanitary bulk bag unloading system from Flexicon eliminates dust during untying, discharging, retying, collapse, and removal of bags, while allowing thorough washdown.

The model BFC-F-X is equipped with a patented Spout-Lock® clamp ring that forms a dust-tight connection between the clean side of the bag spout and the clean side of the equipment. The airtight system is vented to an integral dust collector that vacuums displaced air and dust and collapses empty bags dust-free. A patented, USDA-accepted Power-Cincher® flow-control valve clinches the bag spout concentrically, allowing dust-free retying of partially empty bags. Promoting complete discharge of free- and nonfree-flowing material from the bulk bag are Flow-Flexer® bag activators that raise and lower opposite bottom sides of the bag into a steep V-shape, and a patented Tele-Tube® telescoping tube that maintains constant downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates. Stainless-steel construction meets food, dairy, and pharmaceutical standards.
