Flexicon Corporation (Australia) presents a new range of dual bulk bag filling systems designed to integrate two Swing-Down bulk bag fillers with a Flexicon pallet dispenser and powered roller conveyors to allow safe, high capacity filling of bulk bags of all popular sizes.
All components in the dual bulk bag filling systems are constructed to industrial, food, dairy and pharmaceutical standards.
Programmable controls allow the fillers to operate separately or simultaneously, filling bags of the same size or two different sizes.
A filling cycle is initiated in the Flexicon dual bulk bag filling systems by push button or contact closure, wherein pallet dispenser forks lower the stack of pallets onto the roller conveyor, withdraw from the bottom pallet, and raise the remaining pallets, allowing the roller conveyor equipped with photoelectric eyes to move the dispensed pallet into position below the filling station.
The bag connection frame of the Swing-Down fill heads lower and then pivot to a vertical position, allowing an operator at floor level to safely and quickly attach bag straps to automated latches, slide the bag spout over an inflatable spout seal, and press a spout seal inflation button.
The dual bulk bag filling systems then automatically pivot the bag connection frame back to horizontal, raise the entire fill head, inflate the bag to remove creases and fill the bag at a high rate.
Once the filling is completed accurately at trickle-feed rate, the spout seal is deflated, the bag loops are released and the fill head is raised to disengage the spout, following which the bag rolls out of the filling area, and a new pallet rolls into place to begin another cycle.
An annular gap inside of the fill head spout directs displaced air and dust during the filling operation to a single point connection.
The system is offered with the company's own mechanical or pneumatic material delivery system integrated with the user's upstream process equipment or other material source.
Flexicon’s product range includes bulk bag unloaders, bulk bag conditioners, bag dump stations, drum/ box/ container tippers, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
