Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) are used to store, transport and process bulks. These patented IBCs are great for flow issues such as bridging, blocking and blend segregation. They are ideal for customers with high number of recipes and need quick changeover.
Many bulk material ingredients are handled in bulk bags (or super sacs). Bulk Bag Unloaders help to safely remove all of the contents from the bag so it can then be further processed. Bulk Bag filling units help to safely package bulk materials into these 1 ton bags.
Flexicon BLOCK-BUSTER® Hydraulic Bulk Bag Conditioners loosen bulk solid materials that have solidified during storage and shipment, enabling bulk bag unloaders to discharge the material through bag spouts.
Provide dust-free loading, untying, retying and removal of bulk bags
Flexicon BULK-OUT® Bulk Bag Dischargers (also known as FIBC, Big Bag and Jumbo Bag unloaders) are offered in numerous frame configurations. The two most popular are BFF Series dischargers with bag lifting frame for forklift loading and unloading of bulk bags, and BFC Series dischargers with cantilevered I-beam, electric hoist and trolley for loading and unloading of bulk bags without the use of a forklift.
Flexicon bulk bag fillers range from basic stand-alone units to sophisticated systems to match the budget and capacity requirements of each customer's application. Each of these configurations delivers optimum performance across specific capacity ranges with maximum cost-effectiveness.
These automated washing systems are used in the pharma and food sectors where cleanability and hygiene is of utmost importance. And now in more and more facilities since the pandemic as well. They can clean bins/storage tanks, as well as product components to ensure cleanliness.
There has always been a need crushing big things into smaller pieces - stones, ore, ice, grain and more. Coarse crushers such as our impact crushers, cage mills, hammer mills and lump breakers are integral to this process and ultimately make it easier to further process your materials.
Dust collection is vital in every manufacturing operations’ overall safety. Dust collection systems have pick up points that collect dust that otherwise become airborne and into the factory atmosphere while handling. Sometimes the collected dust is valuable and can be of further use.
Some dry bulk solids like sugar and grain dust are highly explosive. Explosion vents help vent an explosion to safe destination (outdoors, away from workers), while explosion suppression equipment sends a chemical into the process to extinguish a fire ball, keeping the plant environment safe.
With regards to dry bulk process, fans and blowers are used to either push, suck or blow air and/or dry product through an enclosed system. They are frequently used in pneumatic/vacuum conveying systems.
Feeders are used to accurately meter a certain amount of product into a batch or continuous process at a fixed rate. This can be done volumetrically (each screw rotation displaces a fixed volume of product) or gravimetrically (through loss in weight).
These mills are used to take a coarse product and grind it down to a finer powder. These mills cater to applications where temperature control (because grinding creates heat), and end particle size are of utmost importance.
Titan series slide gates are used in gravity or pneumatic process applications to control the flow of heavy duty and abrasive material in nature such as clinker, cement, fly ash, sand, and gravel, . These heavy duty valves are designed to be serviced in line without having to remove the valve, minimizing downtime.
Quantum series slide gates are used in gravity or pneumatic process applications to control the flow of material such as granules, powders, and pellets. These valves are also maintenance friendly and can be serviced in line without having to remove the valve. Our seals help extend the life of the valve which gives us an advantage over the competition.
With no mechanically moving parts, pneumatic conveying is often used in many dry material applications. This type of system is comprised of a blower, filter, receiver, piping and discharge points. Pneumatic conveying can achieve conveying to distances and configurations that other conveying equipment cannot.
These samplers automatically inject a tube in a process stream to collect a sample which gets reviewed by a companies Quality Assurance group. This is the cleanest way of extracting samples from a product stream.
Commonly used in many material transfer systems, screw conveyors offer a proven and economical way to move dry product from one place to another. We offer flexible units which have the ability to bend, as well as shafted and shaftless rigid conveyors that are engineered to order.
Bulk Bag Handling System Slashes Carbon Black Inventory, Keeps Compounding Line Clean
Elastomer manufacturer Kirkhill-TA Co. slashed inventories of carbon black and improved plant cleanliness by replacing a large silo storage system with a BULK-OUT® bulk bag discharging system from Flexicon Corp. It allowed the company to cut inventory by 90 percent, while preventing carbon black dust from contaminating the plant environment. Cost savings and improvements in efficiency and competitiveness accrued as side benefits.
