This dual bulk bag filling system from Flexicon allows safe, high-capacity filling of bulk bags of all popular sizes. Programmable controls allow the fillers to operate separately or simultaneously, filling bags of the same size or two different sizes. The pallet dispenser frees the lowest pallet to move on powered roller conveyor into position below filling station. The bag connection frame of the Swing-Down bulk bag filler lowers and then pivots to a vertical position, allowing the operator at floor level to safely and quickly attach the bag straps to automated latches, slide the bag spout over an inflatable spout seal, and press a spout seal inflation button. The system automatically pivots the bag connection frame back to horizontal, raises the fill head, inflates the bag to remove creases, fills the bag, deflates the spout seal, releases the bag loops, raises the fill head to disengage the spout, rolls the bag out of the filling area, and rolls the new pallet into place to begin another cycle.
