Bag pre-conditioner

March 22, 2003
In many industrial environments, bulk bags are stored for long periods. During that time, environmental elements cause the material within the bulk bags to compact and become very hard. When this happens, it becomes very difficult for the material to flow freely once placed in a bulk bag unloader. The Vac-U-Max Bulk Bag Pre-conditioner utilizes multiple heavy-duty air cylinders to compress all four sides of the bulk bag at timed intervals. The sequenced compression action of the cylinders loosens the material allowing it to become free flowing. This patent-pending bulk bag pre-conditioner is designed to save time and increase plant productivity.Each unit is floor-mounted and can accommodate one bulk bag at a time.
