Flexicon sanitary bulk bag filler

Thursday, 23 April, 2020 | Supplied by: Flexicon Corporation (Aust) Pty Ltd

The latest sanitary bulk bag filling system from Flexicon features dual SWING-DOWN fillers fed by high-capacity weigh hoppers, achieving fill rates of up to 40 bulk bags per hour.

The 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, increasing the safety and speed of connecting bulk bags.

The system employs dual gain-in-weight hoppers positioned above the bulk bag fillers, which allows pre-weighed material to descend into the bag at 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.

Once the inflator button is pressed and the collar secures the bag spout, filling operations are automatic: the fill head raises and returns to horizontal orientation; a dedicated blower fills the bag with air which removes creases in the bag, allowing the material to fill corners to create a stable bag; the surge hopper’s roller gate valve opens; pre-weighed material fills the bag; the valve closes; the inlet seal deflates and the bag loop latches release, allowing a forklift to remove the filled bag.

Ports on each filler are vented to a dust collection system to prevent displaced air and dust from escaping.

The stainless steel system is finished to sanitary standards and equipped with a corrosion-resistant, watertight and dust-tight controls enclosure, allowing washdown.
