30.04.2018 FIBC conditioner without safety doors poses no injury risk

Flexicon Europe, Whitstable, UK, has introduced  a BLOCK BUSTER bulk bag conditioner designed by its US parent company which features a laser safety curtain that automatically stops the system's hydraulic rams, scissor lift and turntable if the laser beam is obstructed, eliminating the need for safety-hinged doors and interlock switches for operator safety.
 
The conditioner loosens densely packed materials in bulk bags by means of hydraulic rams with specially contoured end plates that press and release opposing sides of the bag. A hydraulically actuated, variable-height scissor lift with accordion style dust skirt and turntable allows conditioning of the bag on all sides at all heights.
 
The new conditioner is intended for bulk bags containing hygroscopic chemicals, certain types of spice blends, heat-sensitive products, 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. The unit accommodates bulk bags of all popular sizes, and requires only an electrical power connection for operation. www.flexicon.com
