Flexicon's Bulk Bag Filling Line automatically dispenses pallets, fills bulk bags, and accumulates filled bags for removal by forklift.

The dispenser, which holds up to 15 pallets, has a powered roller conveyor that removes the bottom-most pallet from the stack, and positions it directly beneath the cantilevered fill head of a bulk bag filler. An operator then connects an empty bag to four actuated bag strap hooks, seals the bag spout using an inflatable collar, and presses a bag inflation button to initiate a seven-step automated filling sequence:

  • start a conveyor to fill the bag at high rate
  • reduce the feed rate to dribble speed as the target weight is approached
  • stop the conveyor once the target rate is achieved
  • vibrate the pallet to densify and stabilize the bag
  • deflate the spout seal
  • release the bag loops
  • release the pallet with newly filled bag (and any previously filled bags) to roll to the furthest of three downstream conveyor positions.

The filler is equipped with a powered fill head height adjustment that accommodates all popular bag sizes, and a feed chute vent for dust-free air displacement during filling. An optional Swing-Down fill head lowers and pivots to a vertical position, allowing operators to connect empty bags at floor level at high rates.

All system components are available constructed to industrial, food and dairy standards.
