Bulk bag discharger for explosive environments

Published by
Dry Bulk,


A new BULK-OUT Bulk Bag Discharging System from Flexicon is designed for use in explosive environments. This BFC series model features a pneumatically-powered hoist and trolley to raise and position the bag inside the discharger frame, eliminating the risk of potential sparks from electrical equipment or fork trucks.

A SPOUT-LOCK® clamp ring forms a high-integrity, dust-tight seal between the clean side of the bag spout and the clean side of the equipment, while a TELE-TUBE® telescoping tube maintains constant downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates, promoting complete discharge of free- and non-free-flowing material from the bag.

The all-stainless-steel construction is designed to withstand corrosive environments and allows rapid, thorough wash down with caustic cleaning solutions.

The unit is available with a hopper and pneumatically-driven flexible screw conveyor, a tubular cable conveyor or a rotary airlock valve to feed material into a pneumatic conveyor line.

Flexicon also manufactures BFF-Series dischargers equipped with top-mounted receiving cups and a removable bag-lifting frame for forklift loading of bulk bags, as well as BFH half-frame models that rely on a forklift or overhead hoist to suspend the bag during discharge.
