Bulk Bag Weigh Batching System Doesn’t Require Forklift
The Bulk-Out BFC Series bulk bag discharger features a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley for loading and unloading bulk bags without the use of a forklift. The manufacturer's Flow-Flexer bag activators raise and lower opposite bottom edges of the bag at timed intervals, promoting continuous and complete discharge of free- and non-free-flowing materials through the bag spout. The discharger rests on load cells that signal a PLC to stop a vibratory feeder that meters material into the conveyor once a pre-programmed batch weight has been metered out. It meters ingredients into a Flexi-Disc tubular cable conveyor that transports batches of a specified weight to downstream processing equipment, dust-free.
