Liner Filler Developed for Fast Loading
Van Beek Liner Filler

Van Beek developed the Liner Filler for fast loading of bulk goods into 20-ft containers. This screw conveyor, also called a container filling screw, is fast: a container liner is 85% full in less than half an hour!

Ideal for bulk transport
Fitted with a liner (a sort of big bag that lines the inside of the container) containers are ideal for the transport of bulk goods from far-flung places; an efficient use of space because they are not round and are easy to transport by truck, rail, or ship.

Liner Filler Eliminates Only Disadvantage
There was really only one disadvantage: container liners can only be filled via a relatively small hole on the front of the bag and not all logistics companies have the facilities for this. The Van Beek Liner Filler is a cost-efficient solution for this, without using pneumatic air or endless woven belts.

Operation is as easy as it is efficient. The Liner Filler is a horizontally installed screw conveyor on a (mobile) platform, fed from an inlet hopper or opening installed above it. This inlet hopper can be filled from a silo, a Dino bulk truck loader, with bags or a shovel. The installation can be fitted as an option with wheels so that a forklift truck can move it.

A truck with a 20-ft container reverses so that the screw slides into the opening of the liner. Thanks to a construction lamp operated via the switch cabinet, this is also possible in bad weather. A filling detector is fitted at the end of the screw.

Proven in Practice
The Liner Filler has already proven itself in practice when loading granulates (plastic granules), powders (such as flour), catalysts, and flakes.

Alternative Method with XL Dino
There is another alternative filling method for companies who have the option and space to stand containers vertically. The XL version of the Dino bulk truck filler with its dump height of more than 6 m is long enough to fill a vertical 20-ft container from the top.
