Conditioning and emptying bulk bags with agglomerated material can be dangerous if the proper equipment is not utilized. This unit addresses concerns related to the commonly practiced "forklift conditioning method" such as bag breakage, plant structural damage, forklift damage, or injury to plant personnel.
This new, patented system utilizes hydraulically actuated pivoting conditioning arms with extended travel and features "v-shaped" tubular breaker profiles to efficiently return even the most severely agglomerated materials to a free-flowing state.
The large color operator interface allows easy access to conditioning parameters, full recipe management functions, system status, and manual mode controls. A rotary lift table positions the bulk bag for complete material conditioning on all sides, as well as the top and bottom. The unit features an ultra-compact footprint and machine guarding for operator safety.
