Palletizing Bulk Bag Filler

July 8, 2014

This bulk bag filling line automatically dispenses pallets, fills bulk bags, and accumulates filled bags for removal by forklift. The dispenser is equipped with a powered roller conveyor that removes the bottom-most pallet from the stack of up to 15, and positions it directly beneath the cantilevered fill head of a bulk bag filler. An operator then connects an empty bag to four hooks, seals the bag spout using an inflatable collar, and presses a bag inflation button to initiate an automated filling sequence that fills the bag, vibrates/densifies it, disconnects it, and releases the pallet with newly filled bag (and any previously filled bags) to roll to the furthest of three downstream conveyor positions. 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. Available with mechanical or pneumatic material feed systems.
