Bulk Bag Handling Auxiliary Equipment
Bulk Bag Lifting Frames
Our custom design of this important, time-saving peripheral transports bulk bags to a staging location where bulk bags are discharged. A lifting frame allows manipulation with the forklift tongs under the bag, increasing the forklift's operational height and reducing the headroom clearance required to stage a bulk bag.
Bulk Bag Fillers
Bulk Bag Fillers by Ingredient Masters fill bulk bags efficiently and effectively, and interface with virtually any conveyor—or directly with your production line. They have a streamlined design, are height-adjustable for best ergonomics and feature heavy-service frames for maximum stability. Our bulk bag fillers accommodate a broad range of bulk bag sizes and can be supplied with pre-inflators, product de-aerators, and base-mounted load cells for greatest fill consistency.
Ingredient Masters dry ingredient dispensers are manufactured from rotationally molded polyethylene and provide performance that is superior to steel or stainless steel dispensers. Our dry ingredient dispensers have a liquid-smooth interior which, combined with the dispenser’s geometry, provides excellent flow characteristics. Polyethylene dispensers have exceptional durability, and remain “sweat-free” when temperatures fluctuate.
Ingredient Masters designs its dry ingredient dispensers for a broad range of applications, including 110 cu. ft dispensers for ultra high density powdered material. Capacity for these roto-molded dispensers is 30,000 lbs. For this application, wall thickness is a highly uniform 5/8″ with 1″ material at the bottom discharge.
Ingredient Masters can also supply dry ingredient dispensers manufactured from Teflon, polycarbonate or alloy polyethylene. Each is custom engineered to suit the application, and can be manufactured in a broad variety of shapes.
Pneumatic Conveyor Systems
Ingredient Masters supplies highest quality pneumatic conveyor systems as part of an integrated, cost-effective package. This is an ideal processing solution for companies with fast-track requirements, or who want to save on engineering, fabrication, and commissioning costs.
Portable Micro Batching System
Portable Micro Batching Carts from Ingredient Masters offer an excellent solution for micro batch processes, including those used in food and pharma, cosmetics, chemicals and test laboratories. From the number of ingredients, to the weighed amount's size and accuracy, our batching carts provide micro batching consistency suitable for the most demanding applications.

A bulk bag conditioner (sometimes called a bulk bag pre-conditioner or bulk bag massager) is often purchased to assure good and consistent flow of dry ingredients before they’re discharged.
Clumps in dry ingredients can develop during transit, particularly if the ingredient is hygroscopic, or has been exposed to extreme temperatures. And bulk bags that sit in storage can easily become compacted and flow-resistant.
Many companies sell a bulk bag conditioner to solve this problem, but is the problem the tendency of ingredients to become compacted, or a dry material handling system that is unable to perform properly without help from a bulk bag conditioner?
Ingredient Masters has specialized in the development and manufacture of batching systems that use bulk bags for more than three decades. And we have demonstrated that the vast majority of systems will flow material successfully and consistently, under all operating conditions, without the added cost and complexity of a bulk bag conditioner.
We realize that this is heresy to some bulk bag manufacturers, and companies who sell batching systems that require them. But it is absolutely true that only a very small percentage of materials require a bulk bag conditioner to produce good material flow if the batching system is well-engineered.
We have shown, in hundreds of dry ingredient batching systems, that when bags are specified correctly, and positioned and suspended properly, a bulk bag conditioner is unnecessary. Whether you’re in the food, pharma, ceramics, chemical, refractory or another industry, we can show you a system that flows material without a bag massager or bulk bag conditioner.
