This bulk bag weigh batch eductor system loosens bulk solid material that has solidified during storage and shipment, discharges the material by weight, and blends it into a liquid stream. The skid-mounted system incorporates two bulk bag unloading frames, each with an integral bulk bag conditioner comprised of a hydraulic pump and two rams with contoured end plates that press opposing sides of bulk bags. The unloaders' cantilevered hoists and motorized trolleys allow conditioning of bulk bags at various heights, as well as loading and unloading of bags without the need for a forklift. Safety interlocks disallow operation of the conditioner when the unloaders’ doors are open. Integral configuration of the conditioner eliminates the time, labor, and equipment needed for separate loading of bulk bags into a stand-alone conditioner, while consuming less floor space than two separate pieces of equipment and reducing capital cost.
