Flexicon releases new bulk bag conditioner

A new hydraulic bulk bag conditioner from Flexicon uses hydraulically-actuated rams that automatically adjust in height during conditioning cycles.


Hydraulic bulk bag conditioners are utilised to loosen bulk materials that cannot be loosened by pneumatically-actuated flow promotion devices integral to bulk bag discharge.

The rams of the new design provide two metres of vertical travel, double the range of most conditioners employing scissor lifts to raise the bag, while the fixed-height turntable reduces loading deck height by half.

The user can programme single or multiple heights at which the rams condition the bag, the amount of pressure applied by the rams’ contoured end plates, the frequency of ram actuations and the number of 90-degree rotations of the turntable, loosening solidified materials throughout the bag for discharge through the bag spout.

The system controller can be mounted remotely or on the exterior of the safety cage, which incorporates full-height, safety-interlocked doors.

The unit requires only an electrical power connection for operation and is available in stainless steel or carbon steel with durable industrial coatings.
