Frequently Asked Questions

What are the maximum safe cycles of operations for BFM® Bulk Bag Loader?

BFM® Bulk Bag Loaders have been tested in excess of 1 million inflation/deflation cycles grabbing a bulk bag neck.

As your bag loader ages you may wish to reduce the operating pressure as the pressure required to grip your Bulk Bag will decrease with age.
