Automated bulk bag weigh batcher is launched

A new automated bulk bag weigh batching system from Flexicon meters ingredients into a Flexi-Disc tubular cable conveyor that transports batches of a specified weight to downstream processing equipment, dust-free.

The Bulk-Out BFC Series bulk bag discharger features a cantilevered I-beam with electric hoist and trolley for loading and unloading of bulk bags. Flow-Flexer bag activators raise and lower opposite bottom edges of the bag at timed intervals, for continuous and complete discharge of free- and non-free-flowing materials through the bag spout.

The discharger rests on load cells that signal a programmable logic controller to stop a vibratory feeder that meters material into the conveyor once a pre-programmed batch weight has been metered out.

Low-friction polymer discs attached to stainless steel or galvanised cable within stainless steel conveyor tubing, gently transport friable food and non-food products, and fully evacuate the conveyor of material to achieve accurate batch weights.
