Bulk Bag Filling Station

Active Weighing Solutions offers a range of simple, operator controlled, Australian-made Bulk Bag Filler stations to fill Bulk Bags. These are also known as FIBC filler stations.

Operator Controlled Bulk BagFiller 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 in Australia. (See Automated Bulk Bag Filler Systems for these options.) Other than this, we also offer loadcell, bagging machines, and more.

Bulk Bagging System Operation

An operator will attach empty bulk bag straps onto the Filling Station support hooks. The operator then connects the bulk bag spout to the Bulk Bag Filler 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’s weight and stops the filling at the required weight. The bag is then released, tied off and taken away.

Removal Options:

In a simple system, the filled Bulk Bag (or FIBC) is most commonly removed using a forklift. Filled FIBC and bulk bag removal options include:
  • A forklift raising the pallet to take the filled Bulk Bag weight off the straps to allow easy, filled bag release.
  • A Pneumatic Lowering Device added to assist in Bulk Bag removal. This can also be used as a simple bulk material consolidation device.
  • A Bulk Bag Filling Station Automatic Release and Lowering option – which is particularly useful for higher bagging rates.
