Bulk Bag Conditioner

Bulk Bag Conditioner

Flexicon Europe, Whitstable, UK, in the summer of this year introduced a patented BLOCK-BUSTER® hydraulic bulk bag conditioner that can accommodate FIBCs ranging from short to extra tall designs. It employs hydraulically actuated rams that automatically adjust in height during conditioning cycles.

The rams of the new design provide approximately two metres of vertical travel, roughly double the range of most conditioners employing scissor lifts to raise the bag, while the fixed-height turntable reduces loading deck height by about half.

The user can programme single or multiple heights at which the rams condition the bag, the amount of pressure applied by the rams' contoured end plates, the frequency of ram actuations and the number of 90-degree rotations of the turntable, loosening solidified materials throughout the bag for discharge through the bag spout. The system controller can be mounted remotely or on the exterior of the safety cage, which incorporates full-height, safety-interlocked doors.
