The Flexicon bulk bag discharging system with integral pneumatic conveying system transfers material from bulk bags to silos and other storage vessels. This positive pressure pneumatic system fills bulk storage facilities on islands or other locations unable to receive large volumes of bulk material by rail or bulk truck. The discharger portion includes a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley to lift and position bulk bags without the use of a forklift. A spout-lock clamp ring forms a high-integrity seal between the clean side of the bag spout and the clean side of the equipment, while a telescoping tube maintains constant downward pressure on the clamp ring and bag spout, elongating the bag as it empties to promote complete discharge.
