The BFT-100 is a fork truck loaded frame offered by Tecweigh. This frame is smaller in stature, but not in its capabilities. Bulk bags can be quickly removed and replaced by a qualified fork lift driver. Bags are suspended in the frame from a lightweight, removable aluminum bag adapter. It is light enough to allow a single operator to lift and position it on a full bag, yet durable to support up to 3000-pound bags of material.
The adjustable unistrut structure allows the entire frame to be collapsed for shipping, and installation. Once in place, the frame can be extended to allow bags to be placed properly. The lower half of the frame is also adjustable to allow the discharge height to be set properly. Frames are constructed of 2.5 inch powder coated carbon steel.
Since most dry materials require some assistance to maintain flow, bag agitation is supplied with the standard system, however, should your product flow freely the agitators can be removed. The Agitator can be adjusted to provide optimal amplitude, and frequency to maintain flow of your product.
Integral bag access hoppers are available to allow Operators safe access to the bag spout, and minimize dust that occurs when a new bag is opened. Stand-alone hoppers suspended in the frame, or are integrated in a feeder mounted design are available. Integral hoppers can be supplied in either carbon steel, or stainless steel construction.
When a feeder is required, a support structure is also included. The overall height of the frame can be varied, based on your process requirements.
