This fully automated bulk bag filling system provides National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP)-certified bulk bag weighing accurate to +/- .01% up to a total bulk bag fill weight of 4,500 pounds. NBE design-stage integration of NTEP-certified weigh devices and proper calibration and fabrication during original system construction, ensure precise, NTEP-certified weigh accuracy and repeatability. The possibility of variable weight outcomes and material waste from bolt-on load cells or third-party NTEP scale components is eliminated. NBE's NTEP-certified weigh systems meet rigorous certification testing standards, including producing over 7,000 consecutive weigh cycles, each within a +/- .01% weight accuracy tolerance.
NBE integrated, NTEP-certified weigh systems provide operations, supervision, management, and customer-side personnel the confidence that each filled bag weight is certified accurate, that material volumes are precise, material loss is eliminated, and line operations are optimized.
A single, menu-driven HMI, designed and built by NBE controls all equipment automation including automatic pallet introduction, automated metering of non-free-flowing material, NTEP-certified weighing, and powered outfeed and indexing of filled bulk bags.
