Sanitary Bulk Bag Filler

September 21, 2011
The Swing-Down bulk bag filler features all-stainless construction finished to sanitary standards, and a fill head that lowers and pivots, stopping in a vertically oriented position that places the bag inlet spout inflatable connection, inflator button, and four bag loop latches within reach of an operator on the plant floor. The patented design increases the speed of connecting bulk bags, while eliminating the danger of stepping onto and over roller conveyors to access rear bag hooks and spout connection collars, and of standing on the conveyor with head and arms inserted beneath operational fill head components. Programmable controls raise and pivot the fill head back to horizontal, inflate the bag to remove creases, start the flow of material, and stop it once a preset weight has been gained. Optional vibratory decks densify material. The controller deflates spout connection collar, releases loop latches, and raises the fill head to disengage spout.
