New Bulk Bag Material Conditioner Unveiled

June 17, 2014

Discharging bulk bags containing material that has solidified, hardened, or agglomerated can cause serious operational bottlenecks. Conditioning and emptying bulk bags can be dangerous if the proper equipment is not utilized.

This patented system utilizes hydraulically actuated, heavy wall tubular steel pivoting conditioning arms. Each conditioning arm features "v-shaped" tubular steel breaker profiles that safely and efficiently return solidified materials to a free-flowing state. The unit features a proprietary automated control package that eliminates operator variability and increases productivity.

A powered rotary lift table allows complete material conditioning of the bulk bag on all sides, and top to bottom. The unit features an ultra-compact footprint and machine guarding for operator safety.
