The new dual bulk bag filling systems from Flexicon integrate two Swing-Down bulk bag fillers with a Flexicon pallet dispenser and powered roller conveyors, allowing safe, high capacity filling of most bulk bags. All system components are constructed to industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards.
The bag fillers can be operated separately or simultaneously using programmable controls, filling bags of the same size or two different sizes.
The filling cycle is initiated by push button or contact closure, enabling the pallet dispenser forks to lower the stack of pallets onto the roller conveyor, withdraw from the bottom pallet, and raise the remaining pallets. This allows the roller conveyor equipped with photoelectric eyes to move the dispensed pallet into position below the filling station.
The bag connection frame of the Swing-Down fill heads lowers and then pivots to a vertical position, allowing an operator at floor level to safely and quickly attach bag straps to automated latches, slide the bag spout over an inflatable spout seal, and press a spout seal inflation button.
The bag connection frame is pivoted automatically back to horizontal, following which the entire fill head is raised and the bag is inflated to remove creases. The big is filled at high rate and completes the filling at trickle-feed rate for accuracy.
The spout seal is deflated, the bag loops are released and the fill head is raised to disengage the spout with the filled bag rolling out of the filling area, and a new pallet rolling into place to begin another cycle.
An annular gap inside the fill head spout directs displaced air and dust during the filling operation to a single point connection.
Flexicon’s dual bulk bag filling systems are offered with their own mechanical or pneumatic material delivery system for integration with the user's upstream process equipment or other material source.
Flexicon also manufactures bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag conditioners, bag dump stations, drum/ box/ container tippers, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
