The hydraulic bulk-bag conditioner loosens bulk solid material that has solidified during storage and shipment, enabling bulk-bag unloaders to discharge it through bag spouts. The conditioner features two hydraulic rams with specially-contoured end plates to press opposing sides of bulk bags. A hydraulically-actuated, variable-height turntable that allows in-frame bag rotation and conditioning at varying heights is optional. The number and pressure of hydraulic ram actuations, the height of the turntable and the number of 90-degree rotations are user adjustable. The conditioner is fully enclosed for operator safety and includes full-height doors that interlock to disallow operation of the system when the doors are opened. Available as a stand-alone unit or integral component of a bulk-bag discharger, the unit measures 87 x 133 x 78 inches, accommodates most popular sizes of bulk bags and requires only an electrical power connection for operation.
