Patented TWIN- CENTERPOST™ models maximize strength, accessibility to bag loops and economy. Cantilevered REAR- POST models allow pass-through roller conveyors. SWING-DOWN ® models pivot the fill-head to the operator at floor level for quick, easy and safe spout connections. Optional mechanical and pneumatic conveyors. Opposing hydraulic rams drive contoured conditioning plates to crush and loosen solidified bulk material safely and easily. Bulk bags can be raised, lowered and rotated to allow complete conditioning of the entire bag through the use of automated turntables and scissor lifts, or electric hoist and trolley assemblies. Offered as stand-alone units for loading with forklift or electric hoist and trolley, or integrated with bulk bag dischargers for reduced cost, footprint and loading time. Condition, de-lump, screen, feed, weigh batch, combine with liquids, and convey as you discharge, with a custom-integrated, performance- guaranteed, dust-free discharger system. Offered as stand-alone units for loading with forklift or electric hoist and trolley, split frames for low headroom areas, economical half frames and mobile frames. All available with mechanical and pneumatic conveyors, flow promotion devices, bag dump access, automated weigh batching packages, and much more. Fill one bulk bag per week or 20 per hour with REAR-POST, TWIN-CENTERPOST™, and SWING-DOWN ® Bulk Bag Fillers Loosen material solidified in bulk bags during storage and shipment with BLOCK-BUSTER ® Bulk Bag Conditioners Save time, money and space with BULK-OUT ® Multi-Function Bulk Bag Dischargers and Weigh Batching Stations Stand-alone units to complete, automated systems integrated with mechanical and pneumatic conveyors To Your Specific Bulk Bag Handling Problem Contain dust when dumping bulk solids manually High velocity vacuum fan of FLEXICON ® Manual Dumping Station draws airborne dust from operator's atmosphere through dual cartridge filters. Automatic reverse-pulse filter cleaning system allows continuous, efficient operation; timer activated solenoid valves release short blasts of compressed plant air inside cartridge filters causing dust build- up on the outer filter surfaces to fall into the hopper. Stationary and mobile units offered with hopper configurations for direct connection to Flexicon tubular cable, flexible screw and pneumatic conveyors, or other conveyors and process equipment. Available in carbon steel and stainless steel in industrial or sanitary finish. Weigh batch and blend bulk solids automatically FLEXICON ® Self-Contained, Auto- mated, Gain-In-Weight Batching System can be integrated with new or existing processes and conveyor systems, or supplied with Flexicon pneumatic or flexible screw conveyors to transport materials from any upstream source to any downstream destination. Controller starts/stops each conveyor or rotary airlock valve to weigh multiple ingredients in sequence, first at high feed rate, then at dribble feed rate prior to stopping material flow once the accurate batch weight has been reached. Automatically compensates for material-in-flight. Allows concurrent blending of the discharged batch and weighing of a subsequent batch for fast cycle times. Convey free- and non-free- flowing bulk materials BEV-CON™ Conveyors transport free-flowing and non-free-flowing bulk solids ranging from large pellets to sub-micron powders—including materials that can fluidize, degrade, pack, cake, smear, seize or plug in other conveyors—with no separation of blended products. Units convey vertically, horizontally, or at any angle—through small openings in walls or ceilings—around, over, or under obstructions. The only moving part contacting material is a rugged flexible screw, increasing reliability and cutting maintenance. Enclosed conveyor tube prevents contamination of product and plant environment. Cleans quickly, easily. Individual conveyors available as well as plant-wide systems with automated controls. Dispense and position pallets automatically FLEXICON ® Pallet Dispenser with Powered Roller Conveyor automatically dispenses and positions pallets, significantly improving safety and efficiency over manual methods. Accommodates 40 x 48 in. and 42 x 48 in. (1020 x 1220 mm and 1070 x 1220 mm) pallets and non-standard sizes. Dispenser forks lower the pallet stack onto the roller conveyor, withdraw from the bottom pallet, and raise the remaining pallets, allowing the conveyor with photo-electric sensors to position it. Audible signal and/or flashing light indicate low pallet level. Easily integrated into palletizing/filling systems for drums, pails, bulk bags, sacks and other containers/packages. Elevate, tip and discharge boxes/containers dust-free TIP-TITE ® High-Lift Box/Container Dumper discharges dust-free into vessels 6 to 10 ft (1830 to 3050 mm) high. Accommodates containers 36 to 48 in. (915 to 1220 mm) on a side, and 39 to 44 in. (990 to 1117 mm) in height. Hydraulically raised container platform creates dust-tight seal between top edge of container and underside of discharge hood. Second hydraulic cylinder raises platform-hood assembly vertically, before tipping it to a motion-dampened stop at 60 degrees beyond horizontal, causing discharge cone to mate with receiving vessel's inlet port. Slide gate valve prevents material flow until discharge cone is seated. Convey fragile products gently over short or long distances FLEXI-DISC ® Tubular Cable Con- veyors gently slide friable bulk foods and non-foods through smooth stainless steel tubing using low-friction polymer discs attached to stainless or polymer-coated stainless cable—driven by a wheel at one end of the circuit, and put under tension by a wheel at the other end. Conveyor tubing can be routed horizontally, vertically or at any angle, through small holes in walls or ceilings. Single or multiple inlets and outlets can be added, removed or relocated, and the circuit lengthened, shortened or re-routed as needs change. Stand-alone units to automated systems integrated with new or existing process equipment—to sanitary or industrial standards.
