Bethlehem, PA— A new BULK-OUT Bulk Bag Discharging Station from Flexicon is designed to prevent cross-contamination during material changeovers, while eliminating downtime associated with cleaning of hoppers.
Beneficial for applications involving food allergens, pigments, flavourings and other contamination-sensitive materials, the discharger features a shuttle system that allows a hopper that has been used, to be exchanged for a clean, dry hopper in less than one minute, reports Flexicon in a news release.
The assembly consisting of the clamp ring, telescoping tube and quick-release cone hopper lid, seeks to provide unobstructed access to all material contact surfaces for rapid cleaning during material changeovers. www.flexicon.com
