A new mobile Bulk Bag Filling System from Flexicon Corp. features an integral metal detector/separator and a tilt-down conveyor/feeder for dust-free filling at multiple locations.

Integral to the system is a patented Twin-Centerpost Bulk Bag Filler said to maximize strength and improve accessibility to bag hooks while simplifying construction and reducing cost.

The system detects metal in the free-fall stream of material entering the filler and then ejects it through a chute that discharges into a removable drum at the rear of the unit.

The filler is also equipped with: fill head height adjustment to accommodate all popular bag sizes; inflatable cuff to seal the bag inlet spout; blower to remove bag creases prior to filling; load cells for filling by weight; vent port for dust-free air displacement during filling; pneumatically retractable bag hooks; and automated vibratory densification/deaeration system to maximize capacity and stabilize the bag for storage or shipment.

The first bulk bag filler to receive USDA acceptance, it is constructed of 316 stainless steel, finished to sanitary standards and configured with full-length forklifting tubes allowing it to be moved throughout the plant.
