Bulk bag lifting frame with adjustable arms

Bulk bag lifting frame with adjustable arms

A new bulk bag lifting frame, featuring telescoping arms that accommodate an increasing range of sizes of bulk bags, has been introduced by Flexicon Corporation. The lifting frame is optional on all BFC models of Flexicon's BULK-OUT discharger line, and available for up to 2 tonne capacities, to replace conventional lifting frames of any make or model of discharger that employs a hoist to position and suspend bulk bags.

The telescoping arms can be adjusted using clevis pins and safety clips to a range of settings to accommodate bulk bags from 32 to 47 in. (81 to 119 cm) square at the upper sew seam. This adjustability also allows the lifting frame to work safely with rectangular bags.

Available in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings or stainless steel to industrial or sanitary standards, the adjustable frames are equipped as standard with Flexicon's patented Z-CLIPTM strap channels that hold the straps securely while allowing rapid insertion and removal.
