The BL40-5 suction-cup bag-handling device features a long, stable bellow and an elongated, thin, sealing lip with a wide diameter for an increased working area. This helps to reduce changeovers between bag sizes, shapes and dimensions, the co. reports. Featuring high initial flow, the suction cup offers quick gripping speeds and is suitable for level adjustments. The bag-handling suction cup can contact food items directly in top-loading applications. With a wide temperature range of -76 to 392 deg F, the cup can handle dozens of products including bags of frozen food. A thick bellow on the cup handles heavy bags filled with liquid, viscous content or dense food items, the co. states.
