Bag to the future!

Increased bulk bag filling accuracy and shorter cycle times are some of the improvements Spiroflow has made to its range of bulk bag fillers. The new

C Series bulk bag filler is designed for users wanting to remove bags from a pallet by forklift truck.

It retains the robust, two-leg frame that offers unimpeded access to the front of the filler for the easy hanging of empty bags. Filling can be either controlled by volume or by weight, and there is the option of an automatic gain-in-weight weighing system with programmable one-touch controls. Filling can be controlled to within 1% accuracy.

Filling rates of up to 20 bags an hour are attainable, depending on the flowability of the product and the type of storage hopper or conveyor used to deliver the product to the filler.

The new C Series bulk bag filler can be customised to meet individual requirements. Options include powered height adjustment; rear bag loops that move forward for easy bag hanging; and automatic opening of bag hooks. The filling head can be supplied with an inflatable mechanical seal to ensure a dust-tight seal between the filler and the bag.

A liner inflation device is also available to create a slight pressure to remove wrinkles and form the bag properly to give maximum material capacity.
