It allows material to flow into the hopper which is attached to an integral flexible screw conveyor for transfer at any angle to downstream processing, storage or packaging equipment. It also allows bulk bag discharge to take place in areas of low headroom, relying on the user's forklift or plant hoist to lower single-use bulk bags onto a fourbladed bag piercing knife.
Flexicon has also introduced a dust plenum which consists of a hollow hopper rim with interior slots and exterior ports vented to a plant dust collection system. The unloader helps companies with restricted headroom to increase the speed and efficiency in which material can be released into a downstream process.
