    Bulk bag discharger for explosive environments

    WHITSTABLE, KENT ⎯ A new BULK-OUT® Bulk Bag Discharging System from Flexicon is designed for use in explosive environments. This BFC series model features a pneumatically-powered hoist and trolley to raise and position the bag inside the discharger frame, eliminating the risk of potential sparks from electrical equipment or fork trucks that might be otherwise used for this function.

    A SPOUT-LOCK™ clamp ring forms a high-integrity, dust-tight seal between the clean side of the bag spout and the clean side of the equipment, while a TELE-TUBE™ telescoping tube maintains constant downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates, promoting complete discharge of free- and non-free-flowing material from the bag.

    Flexicon’s BULK-OUT® Bulk Bag Discharging System
    features a pneumatically-powered hoist and trolley that
    eliminates the risk of potential sparks from electrical equipment
    or fork trucks otherwise used for this function.



    The all-stainless-steel construction is designed to withstand corrosive environments and allows rapid, thorough wash down with caustic cleaning solutions.

    The unit is available with a hopper and pneumatically-driven flexible screw conveyor, a tubular cable conveyor or a rotary airlock valve to feed material into a pneumatic conveyor line.

    Flexicon also manufacture BFF-Series dischargers equipped with top-mounted receiving cups and a removable bag-lifting frame for forklift loading of bulk bags, as well as BFH half-frame models that rely on a forklift or overhead hoist to suspend the bag during discharge.

    The company also manufacture flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag fillers, bulk bag conditioners, manual dumping stations, drum/box/container tippers, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
