Developed specifically for discharging bulk bags and rigid totes from mezzanines and other low-headroom areas is the Split Frame Unloader. The machine reportedly allows an upper frame to be forklifted onto a plant floor, loaded with a bulk bag and forklifted onto a subframe within several inches of a ceiling. For discharging from bulk bags, the subframe is equipped with a Power-Cincher® flow-control valve that cinches the bag spout concentrically on a horizontal axis for easy tie-off, and vertically in a tight, zig-zag pattern to prevent leakage of fine powders. Side-Flexer™ bag activators impart horizontal forces to opposite sides of the bag to promote flow and are height-adjustable.
