Flexicon Corporation: Discharger/Dumping Station
June 4, 2001
The new BFF Combi-Hood bulk bag discharger from Flexicon Corp. features a multi-purpose hopper interface that allows automatic discharging from bulk bags as well as manual emptying from sacks, drums or other containers. For bulk bag discharging, the bag outlet is pulled through a top-mounted iris valve that is closed around the spout, preventing material flow. The spout can then be untied, the access door closed and the valve released slowly, reducing uncontrolled bursts of material into the hopper and dust into the plant environment.
