Flexicon BLOCK-BUSTER bulk bag conditioner

Flexicon BLOCK-BUSTER bulk bag conditionerThe new BLOCK-BUSTER bulk bag conditioner is suitable for bulk bags containing hygroscopic chemicals, spice blends, heat-sensitive products, and other materials prone to solidifying. The machine features two hydraulic rams and specially contoured end plates. It presses opposing sides of bulk bags, loosening material that has solidified during storage and shipment, enabling bulk bag unloaders to discharge it through bag spouts. A cantilevered I-beam with motorized hoist and trolley allows loading and unloading of bulk bags without need of a forklift. The bag also can 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.
