The low profile dischargers are engineered to straddle downstream blenders, feeders, tanks or other equipment in areas with limited headroom, restricted floor space and/or obstacles that would preclude the use of conventional discharger frames.
Lacking an upper frame, the discharger provides overhead space for suspending of bulk bags using a forklift or plant hoist. It can also be configured to support new or existing bulk bag lifting frames that can be connected to bags at floor level and then forklifted onto the half frame within inches/centimeters of the ceiling.
The high-integrity, dust-tight seal between bag spout and clamp ring allows full-open discharge from bag spouts of all popular diameters, eliminating the need for iris valves commonly employed to lessen dust escape inherent with bag spouts hanging loosely within intake chutes.The discharger is also equipped with FLOW-FLEXER® bag activators that raise
Product contact surfaces are of stainless steel, with frame construction of carbon steel, or stainless steel finished to industrial, food, dairy or pharmaceutical standards.
Full-frame dischargers offered by the company include BFF models with a lifting frame for forklift loading of bulk bags, and BFC models with a cantilevered I-beam and electric hoist and trolley for positioning of bags without the use of a forklift.
The variable height and offsets of low profile BULK-OUT® Half-Frame Dischargers allow dust-free evacuation of bulk bags in restricted spaces at low cost.
