The Flexicon BFF Series bulk bag discharger contains dust when connecting bag spouts and feeding material into vacuum conveying lines. A removable bag-lifting frame is held by forklift immediately above a palletized bulk bag for the rapid insertion of bag straps into holders from an ergonomic standing height and then lifted with the suspended bag into top-mounted cradle cups.

A clamp ring positioned atop a pneumatically actuated telescoping tube connects the clean side of the spout to the clean side of the equipment and then lowers, maintaining steady downward tension on the bag as it empties and elongates, promoting material flow. Concurrently, bag activators raise and lower opposite bottom edges of the bag at timed intervals to loosen compacted materials and ultimately raise the bag bottom into a steep "V" shape for total evacuation with no manual intervention.

An enclosed hopper charges a non-flow-through (flood feed) pick-up adapter that feeds vacuum conveyor lines.

Options include a rotary airlock valve with a flow-through pick-up adapter for controlled metering into pressure and vacuum systems, and spring-loaded frame posts that raise the cradle cups and stretch the bag as it lightens for added flow promotion.

The unit is constructed of carbon steel with a durable industrial finish, or in stainless steel finished to sanitary or industrial standards.
