Flexicon mobile sanitary IBC unloading and conveying system transfers contamination-sensitive bulk solid materials from intermediate bulk containers to downstream processes, dust-free.​

​The discharger frame is mounted on casters for mobility, while a hinged subframe supporting a surge hopper, flexible screw conveyor and support mast can pivot down for maneuvering through doorways and low-headroom areas.

​The IBC frame is forklifted onto receiving cups, which position the IBC outlet onto the surge hopper inlet. Material flowing from the IBC into the charging adapter of a flexible screw conveyor is propelled at an incline and discharged into elevated process equipment and storage vessels.

The screw is the only moving part contacting material and is driven by an electric motor positioned beyond the discharge point. ​The system is available in carbon steel with industrial coating, with stainless steel material contact surfaces, or in all-stainless steel.
