POWER-FLO™ conditioning system with PLC controls

April 30, 2007
System is designed to automatically break up non-free flowing material that has hardened or developed lumps inside bulk bags during transit and/or storage. The integral hydraulic lift table and powered rotary turntable automatically raise, lower, and rotate the bulk bag for maximum conditioning. Hydraulically actuated “compression” plates mounted on opposing sides break up material and can return most materials to a dischargeable state within minutes. The operator interface allows easy access to bag conditioning parameters, recipes, input and output status, and manual mode controls. Flattened expanded metal safety guarding on three sides and through-beam sensors on the load side protect employees. Equipment is designed to your specific application requirements.
