Flexicon Corporation: Bulk bag and manual dump weigh batch system

Flexicon’s combination Bulk Bag and Manual Dump Batching System weighs bulk materials that are discharged from bulk bags and/or manually dumped from sacks, boxes and other containers, and empties the batch into mobile storage bins.

The sanitary system consists of a bulk bag unloading frame, 2 hoppers, and 2 flexible screw conveyors that feed a central gain-in-weight hopper under automated control. Handles a variety of free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials including products that pack, cake, smear or easily degrade, with no separation of blended products. Floor hopper is available with a containment hood including integral dust collection for clean, safe handling of dusty materials.
