Model 4260 FIBC fillers are designed as either non-weigh, gross weigh or net weigh machines to fill open mouth bulk bags, tote boxes and drums with dry pelleted, flaked, granular or powdered products such as seeds, grains, chemical powders, concrete blends and similar materials. This modular design is configurable to fit any application from basic non-weighing machines used for dust collection or basic pack off lines, to a fully automated system that dispenses the empty pallet, fills the bag to the correct weight, discharges the filled bag and indexes the filled bags for transfer to storage area.
How it works:
Bulk Bags: The strap hangers move to allow easy access for the operator to position the empty bag. An inflatable neck seal secures the bag fill neck and prevents dust escape. The bag fills upon operator command and when the appropriate weight is achieved, the bag is lowered to a waiting pallet and released for removal by fork-truck or conveyor.
Tote boxes: A single empty box positioned under the fill spout will be charged with product until the correct weight is achieved. If settling, or dust collection is required these features will be incorporated. Fork-truck or conveyor can remove filled boxes.
Drums: A single pallet with four drums is positioned in the filler. The scale recognizes, and tares the weight to show zero. The drum arm and hood are manually positioned over the first drum to be filled. When ready, the drum fills to the correct weight and the fill stops. At this time the hood can be moved to the next drum and upon operator command, the drum weight will tare to zero and another drum will fill to weight. This process can be repeated to fill all drums on the pallet.
