Flexicon’s Block-Buster bulk bag conditioner uses two hydraulic rams and specially contoured end plates to press opposing sides of bulk bags, loosening material that has solidified during storage and shipment. This enables bulk bag unloaders to discharge material through bag spouts.
A cantilevered I-beam with motorized hoist and trolley allow loading and unloading of bulk bags without the use of a forklift. The bag can also be raised and lowered using the hoist, and rotated manually, for conditioning at any height on all sides.
The system controller and hydraulic pump can be mounted on the exterior of the safety cage or remotely. The conditioner is fully enclosed on all four sides for operator safety and includes full-height doors that are interlocked to disallow operation of the system when the doors are open.
The number and pressure of hydraulic ram actuations, the height of the turntable, and the number of 90-degree rotations are user-programmable.
