Bulk Bag Filling Station

Active Weighing Solutions offers a range of simple, operator controlled Bulk Bag Filling Stations to fill Bulk Bags, also known as Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers (FIBC).

Operator Controlled Bulk Bagging Stations

Each Active Weighing Solutions Bulk Bag Filling Station is engineered to meet:
  • the OH&S issues involved in placing and removing bulk bags
  • specific properties of the dry bulk material being loaded
  • plant operational requirements
Models can be based on an overhead platform or on-floor design, be trade approved, dust tight, provide product consolidation and integrate with various feed devices, bag removal methods and operator access structures. Active Weighing Solutions offers simple operator controlled Bulk Bag Filling Stations through to highly automated, turnkey Bulk Bag Filling Systems. (See Automated Bulk Bag Filling Systems for these options.)

Bulk Bagging System Operation

An operator will attach empty Bulk Bag straps o nto the support hooks. The operator then connects the bulk bag spout to the Bulk Bag Filling station filling spout. The filling sequence is then initiated and the bag is filled through either a Single Position Catch Gate or a Two Position Feed Gate, depending upon the properties of the bulk material and required accuracy. A weigh controller monitors the bag weight and stops the filling at the required weight. The bag is then released, tied off and taken away. In a simple system, the filled Bulk Bag is most commonly removed using a forklift. Removal Options:
  • A forklift raises a pallet to take the filled Bulk Bag weight off the straps allowing easy, filled bag release.
  • A Pneumatic Lowering Device can be added to assist Bulk Bag removal. This can also be used as a simple bulk material consolidation device.
  • An Automatic Release and Lowering option is particularly useful for higher bagging rates.
