Flexicon Introduces Wide-Inlet Bulk Bag Filler
Flexicon's new wide-inlet bulk bag filler

A new wide-inlet bulk bag filler from Flexicon allows rapid filling and passage of large, moist, or dense chunks and semi-solid materials into open or duffle-top bulk bags.   
The unit features powered height adjustment of the cantilevered fill head to accommodate all popular bag heights, pneumatically-adjustable bag hooks, a roller conveyor, automated vibratory densification/deaeration deck, and load cells with automated controls.
Material passes through a hopper equipped with a slide gate valve positioned above the filler, and through the filler's inlet chute that tapers from 26 to 20 sq in. before discharging into an open-top bulk bag.
A vibratory deaeration deck activated at timed intervals during the filling cycle densifies the bulk material, stabilizing the bag.
When load cells signal that the bag is approaching target weight, a controller shuts the slide gate valve, releases the bag straps and activates a powered roller conveyor to remove the filled bulk bag from the filling area.
Constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial finish, the system is suitable for sludge-like materials, disparate-sized scrap, mulch, stone, coal, wood pellets, and other bulk material containing pieces, chunks, agglomerates, clumps, and other materials too large or non-free-flowing for conventional bulk bags and fillers. The unit is also available in stainless steel for filling of potatoes, cassavas, turnips, and similarly sized crops.
