The Flexicon mobile half-frame bulk bag unloader with multipurpose hopper allows material to be discharged from bulk bags, manually dumped from sacks, and conveyed to downstream processes and storage vessels dust free. For in-plant mobility, the Flexicon system minimizes weight and achieves a low center of gravity by eliminating upper frame components, relying instead on the user's forklift or plant hoist to suspend the bag above the unit during operation. The bulk-bag-to-hopper interface consists of a SPOUT-LOCK clamp ring positioned atop a pneumatically actuated TELE-TUBE telescoping tube, allowing dust-tight connections and unrestricted flow between the bag spout and hopper, as well as automatic tensioning of the bag as it empties to promote flow and evacuation.
