Bag unloader with screw conveyor

April 1, 2011




Flexicon’s single-trip bulk-bag unloader allows rapid, low-cost discharging in low headroom areas, and conveying of the material at any angle to downstream processing, storage and packaging equipment. The unloader relies on a forklift or plant hoist to lower single-use bulk bags onto a four-bladed bag piercing knife that cuts the bag bottom from seam-to-seam, promoting complete discharge without the use of flow promotion devices. The unloader charges the intake adapter of an integral flexible screw conveyor that handles free- and non-free-flowing bulk materials.
