Bulk Bag Filler

December 9, 2010
Flexicon CorpThe Model BFB basic bulk bag filler 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. It is a lighter-duty version of the company's heavy-gauge Twin-Centerpost filler, a patented design with two on-center posts that offer the structural integrity of four-post fillers but at 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.
