Here is short list of fast-payback equipment available from Flexicon. Each system is designed to reduce your labor requirements and increase productivity. Most include a pre-programmed automated control system that can accurately measure your gain-in-weight or loss-in-weight requirements; start, stop, or slow conveyor movements, and integrate Flexicon systems with process equipment from other manufacturers.

  • Automated, sealed BULK-OUT® Discharger-Conveyor Systems replace multiple workers dumping hand-held bags manually, while preventing contamination.
  • Enclosed Bulk Bag Weigh Batch Systems feed a central weigh hopper mechanically, and remove weighed batches pneumatically, requiring labor only to attach/detach bulk bags.
  • Bulk Bag Discharging Systems can loosen solidified material and meter it into liquid streams, screeners, size reduction equipment and continuous blenders—automatically.
  • Dual SWING-DOWN® Bulk Bag Fillers fed by weigh hoppers fill up to 40 bags per hour with only one operator connecting empty bags and one forklift removing full bags.
  • Flexicon Bulk Bag Filling Lines automatically dispense pallets, fill bulk bags, and disconnect/accumulate filled bags, minimizing operator involvement.
  • TIP-TITE® Drum/Box Dumpers seal, tip and mate a discharge cone to a gasketed hopper lid, open a slide gate and feed downstream processes— automatically and dust-free.
