The Material Master Powerfill Select bulk bag filler (photo) features an exclusive rotating bag-support carriage for maximum filling efficiency and reduced operator fatigue. The bag-support carriage and fill head lower to a programmed operator height, then rotate for “reach-free” bag-strap connection. From the load position, an operator can safely connect an empty bag while standing on the floor in front of the filler unit in approximately 20-30 s. Once the bag spout is sealed, the bag is automatically inflated, filled and weighed with the push of a button. Once the fill cycle is complete, the bag inlet spout and straps automatically release, the fill head raises and the filled bag is removed. — Material Transfer & Storage, Inc., Allegan, Mich.
