The BULK-OUT Bulk Bag Discharger from Flexicon Corporation features stainless steel open-channel construction for applications in which contamination of the product or equipment cannot be tolerated.
Unlike hollow steel frame members, the open-channel frame is devoid of cavities or recesses where bacteria, mold and other contaminants can breed, allowing rapid, thorough wash down with water, steam or cleaning solution, reducing the risk of cross-contamination between changeovers and providing unobstructed inspection for verifying cleanliness.
To meet food, dairy, and pharmaceutical requirements, construction includes continuous welds, ground smooth and flush with adjoining members.
As a "BFC" model, the discharger is equipped with a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley for loading and unloading of bulk bags without the use of a forklift.
It is also supplied with FLOW-FLEXER bag activators that raise and lower opposite bottom edges of the bulk bag at timed intervals, promoting continuous and complete discharge of free- and non-free-flowing materials through the bag spout.
