The BFC-F-X bulk bag unloader is designed to eliminate dust during untying, discharging, retying, collapse and removal of bags while still allowing thorough washdown. Its clamp ring forms a dust-tight connection between the clean sides of the bag spout and the equipment. The system is vented to an integral dust collector that vacuums displaced air and dust before collapsing empty bags. To empty the bags completely, bag activators raise and lower the opposite bottom sides of a bag into a steep “V” shape, and a telescoping tube maintains downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates.
