Bag to the future!
Spiroflow Ltd has made some significant improvements to their range of Bulk Bag Fillers – all designed to increase filling accuracy and cycle time.
The all new C Series Bulk Bag Filler is the model for users wanting to remove bags on a pallet by forklift truck. It retains the robust, 2 leg frame offering unimpeded access to the front of the filler for the easy hanging of empty bags. Dependent upon the application, filling can either controlled by volume or by weight. For customers wanting ‘Weights and Measures’ (OIML) approval, there is the option of an automatic ‘gain-in-weight’ weighing system with programmable one-touch controls. The operator can control Bulk Bag Filler operations, accurate to +/- 1%, as well as the upstream material feed devices.
Filling rates of up to 20 bags an hour are attainable, depending on the ‘flowability’ of the product and the storage hopper, or conveyor, used to deliver the product to the filler. It is ideally suited for applications in all industries including chemical, food, dairy, pharmaceutical, animal feed, plastics, minerals and aggregates.
The newly redesigned C Series Bulk Bag Filler can be readily customised to meet individual user requirements. Below are some examples of custom features:
Powered Height Adjustment: this option lets the operator quickly adjust the height between filling cycles to accommodate differing size Bulk Bags.
Rear Bag Loops move forward: for easy bag hanging
Automatic opening of bag hooks: this simultaneously opens/closes all bag hooks to allow for faster detachment of the Bulk Bag loops from the Bulk Bag Filler. This operation is especially beneficial when using a powered roller conveyor as it can be linked so that the bag loops are released before the roller conveyor operates.
Filling Head with inflatable mechanical seal: this option ensures a dust tight seal between the Bulk Bag Filler and the Bulk Bag for hygienic, dust-free operation.
Movable Filling Head: another aid for easier, safer and faster bag hanging which reduces operator fatigue and eliminates the need for the operator to step onto the filler – which must be avoided at all costs with a roller conveyor base.
Liner inflation device: inflates the Bulk Bag’s liner with ambient air and creates slight positive pressure to remove wrinkles and properly form the bag to assure maximum material capacity. This facility also enables the bag to be inflated with nitrogen when packing materials that oxidise during storage.
Roller Bed: the roller bed system, either manual or powered, enables filled bags to be removed from the filler and an empty bag to be rigged even went a folklift truck is not immediately available – making for increased productivity.
Electric or pneumatic vibrators: during the filling process, vibrators improve material densification in the Bulk Bag. This increases productivity, maximises the use of space and ensures that filled bags are safe for further handling, storage or transportation and that they are aesthetically pleasing too.
