Bulk Bag Unloader for Pneumatic Conveyors

May 27, 2008
The BFF-series (forklift-load) bulk bag unloader has a non-flow-through pickup adapter for multiple pneumatic conveying lines. The Tele-Tube telescoping tube raises a spout-lock clamp ring that seals the clean side of the bag spout to the clean side of the telescoping tube, exerting continual downward tension as the bag empties and elongates, promoting flow while containing dust. A power-cincher flow control valve cinches the spout concentrically for easy leakproof tie offs, while a Bag-Vac dust collector creates negative pressure within the dust-tight system to collapse empty bags dust-free prior to retying and disconnection. Flow-Flexer bag activators raise the bottom of the bag into a steep V shape, promoting complete discharge.
