New bulk bag conditioner features safety laser
Flexicon Corporation created a Block-Buster® bulk bag conditioner with a laser safety curtain that automatically stops the system's hydraulic rams, scissor lift and turntable if the laser beam is obstructed.
This eliminates the need for safety-hinged doors and interlock switches for operator safety.
The number and pressure of hydraulic ram actuations, the height of the turntable, and the number of 90-degree rotations are user adjustable. The system controller and hydraulic pump can be mounted on the exterior of the frame or remotely.
The new conditioner is intended for bulk bags containing hygroscopic chemicals, certain types of spice blends, heat-sensitive products such as baked goods, and other materials prone to solidifying to the point at which pneumatically-actuated flow promotion accessories integral to bulk bag dischargers are inefficient or completely ineffective.
Available as a stand-alone unit or integral component of a bulk bag discharger, the unit measures 2210 mm high by 3378 mm wide and 1981 mm deep. It accommodates bulk bags of all popular sizes, and requires only an electrical power connection for operation.
