Basic Bulk Bag Filler Can be Upgraded With Performance Enhancements

Flexicon's 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.

The “Model BFB" filler is a lighter-duty version of the company's heavy-gauge Twin-Centerpost filler, a design with two on-center posts said to 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.

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. The filler is also available with the company's own flexible screw or pneumatic conveyor delivery system integrated with the user's upstream process equipment or other material source.
