Flexicon Corp. has introduced a new bulk bag lifting frame with telescoping arms that the firm said accommodates bulk bags produced in an increasing range of sizes.
The lifting frame is optional on all BFC models of Flexicon's Bulk-out discharger line and is available for up to 2.2 ton capacities to replace conventional lifting frames of any make or model of discharger that employs a hoist to position and suspend bulk bags, the company claimed.
The telescoping arms can be adjusted using clevis pins and safety clips to a range of settings to accommodate bulk bags from 32 to 47 inches square at the upper sew seam, Flexicon said, allowing the lifting frame to work safely with rectangular bags.
