WHAT ARE YOUR REQUIREMENTS?

When you’re speaking with an engineer or salesperson about your conditioning needs, you’ll likely be asked a wide range of questions because this will help the manufacturer narrow down the options necessary to provide you with the best solution for your process.

Will your product not reliably unload from the bulk bag?

What size bulk bag is your product stored in?

How compacted does your product become?

What size is the space where the machine will sit?

CUSTOMIZABLE OPTIONS

We have several options available for our bulk bag conditioners that may be suitable for your application:

  • Manual Turn Table: The bulk bag on a pallet is rotated 360° for 4-side bag conditioning
  • Automatic Turn Table: Automatically moves the bag on the turntable for conditioning of all sides.
  • Scissor Lift: Used with a fixed mast bulk bag conditioner. The manual or automatic operated scissor lift moves the bulk bag up and down.  As a result, this conditions at different levels of the bag.
  • Integration: The bulk bag conditioner integrates within the support framework of a bulk bag unloader or other process equipment.

BULK BAG CONDITIONER COSTS

Because of these features, the cost of any bulk bag conditioner depends largely on which options you choose to add to the design. Whether it is manual or automated, fixed or movable mast, or if you need a turntable. All of these factors can contribute to the overall price.
