Flexicon has announced a sanitary bulk bag conditioner for loosening bulk solids material that has compacted during storage and shipment.

The stainless-steel conditioner allows discharge from bulk bag unloaders through the bag spouts.

It features two hydraulic rams with specially contoured end plates that press opposite sides of bulk bags.

An optional hydraulically actuated, variable-height turntable allows conditioning of the bag at all heights on all sides.

The number and pressure of hydraulic ram actuations, the height of the turntable and the number of 90deg rotations are user adjustable.

The sanitary model is intended for bulk bags containing solidified bulk food and other contamination-sensitive products that cannot be loosened using pneumatically-actuated flow promotion devices integral to bulk bag dischargers.

Carbon-steel models with durable industrial coatings are offered for general industrial applications.

The unit measures 2,210mm (H) x 3,380mm (W) x 1,980mm (D) and accommodates bulk bags of all popular sizes.

It is fully enclosed on all four sides for operator safety and includes full-height doors that are interlocked to prevent operation of the system when the doors are open.

The system controller and hydraulic pump can be mounted remotely or on the exterior of the safety cage and require only an electrical power connection for operation.
