New split frame unloader allows discharging of bulk bags and rigid totes from mezzanines and other low headroom areas. Unlike fixed-frame unloaders that require sufficient headroom above the top of the frame to clear the load-backrest of a forklift, Flexicon’s Split-Frame Unloader allows the upper frame to be forklifted onto the plant floor, loaded with a bulk bag, and then forklifted back onto the subframe within several inches/centimeters of the ceiling. For discharging from bulk bags, the subframe is equipped with a Power-Cincher® flow control valve that cinches the bag spout concentrically on a horizontal axis for easy tie-offs, and vertically in a tight zig-zag pattern to prevent leakage of fine powders. It also allows full-open discharge from bag spouts of all popular diameters and is USDA-accepted.
