Flexicon Corp.: New Automated Bulk Bag Weigh Batching System

June 8, 2004
Flexicon Corp. is offering a new automated bulk bag weigh batching system.

A new automated bulk bag weigh batching system from Flexicon Corp. feeds ingredients to a central hopper at mezzanine level using four flexible screw conveyors, and transports pre-weighed batches to a downstream blender using a pneumatic conveying system. The BFC series bulk bag dischargers feature a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley to raise and position bulk bags without the use of a forklift. The units are equipped with FLOW-FLEXER(TM) bag activators that raise and lower opposite bottom edges of the bag at timed levels, loosening compacted materials and promoting material flow into the discharge spout.
