Comment Solids Handling

This bulk-bag filler has a built-in densification system

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

This company’s four-post bulk-bag filler system (photo) features heavy-duty tubular carbon-steel frame construction for strength and durability. It is adjustable for future bag size flexibility. A food-grade inflatable spout seal assures a dust-tight seal to the bag inlet. The unit is equipped with a heavy-duty flat-top densification system with twin electric vibrators and a pallet-retaining system. The adjustable, high-output densification system quickly settles products, maximizing fill volume and enhancing bag stability. A gain-in-weight carbon-steel scale system with a 2,500-lb capacity, along with the densification system, are programed and monitored using a remote NEMA 4 control panel with a PLC, HMI and emergency stop pushbutton. — Material Transfer & Storage, Inc., Allegan, Mich.
