Flexicon announced its sanitary bulk bag filling system that features dual SWING-DOWN® fillers fed by high capacity weigh hoppers. This sanitary bulk bag filling system can achieve fill rates of up to 40 bulk bags per hour.
The patented filler design simultaneously lowers and pivots each fill head into a vertically oriented position that places the inflatable spout connection collar, inflator button, and four bag loop latches within reach of an operator standing on the plant floor.
The operator can connect each bag loop and the bag spout without having to stand on a ladder or reach over equipment to secure the bag.
Instead of using load cells to weigh each bag, this system employs dual gain-in-weight hoppers positioned above the bulk bag fillers. This allows pre-weighed material to descend into the bag at extremely high rates and saves additional time by refilling the weigh hopper while the full bag is being removed and an empty bag is being connected.
Ports on each filler are vented to a dust collection system to prevent displaced air and dust from escaping into the plant environment.
While a bag is being filled and then forklifted on one side, an operator can connect an empty bag on the opposite side, further maximizing output. Widened base frames allow filling of portable totes in addition to bulk bags.
The all-stainless-steel system is finished to sanitary standards and equipped with a corrosion-resistant, water-tight and dust-tight controls enclosure, allowing wash-down.
