Basic Bulk Bag Filler Unveiled by Flexicon Corporation
BETHLEHEM, PA – The new Basic Bulk Bag Filler introduced by Flexicon performs low capacity filling operations at minimal cost, and can be upgraded with performance enhancements including a material delivery system integrated with the user’s process equipment or bulk storage vessels, says David Boger, VP Sales and Marketing.
The new “Model BFB” filler is a lighter-duty version of the company’s heavy-gauge Twin-Centerpost™ filler, a patented design with two on-center posts said to offer the structural integrity of four-post fillers but at significantly lower material and fabrication costs and with less weight. It also affords easier access to the bag spout and loops according to the company.
The filler is equipped as standard with fill head height adjustment via fork truck to accommodate all popular bag sizes, an inflatable cuff to seal the bag inlet spout, and a feed chute vent port for dust-free air displacement during filling.
Performance can be enhanced by adding an inflator to expand the bag prior to filling, and a programmable scale system with flow control valve for automated filling by weight. The filler is also available with the company’s own flexible screw or pneumatic conveyor delivery system integrated with the user’s upstream process equipment or other material source.
The company also manufactures Swing-Down fillers that lower and pivot the fill head to vertical for connecting bags at floor level, rear-post fillers, flexible screw conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag conditioners, bag dump stations, drum dumpers, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
