Flexicon Multi-Purpose Filler

Flexicon Multi-Purpose FillerThis new Multi-Purpose Filler dispenses bulk solid materials into boxes, drums and bulk bags by weight. The unit features a fill head that reportedly seals dust-tight against the inlet spout of bulk bags, or connects to transition adapters that seal against open boxes or drums. The filler usess the company's Twin-Centerpost frame, designed to maximize strength and improve accessibility to the fill head while simplifying construction and reducing cost. It is mounted on load cells tied into a PLC that controls upstream devices to fill containers at high rate, and then at dribble-feed rate to maximize the number of containers filled per hour, while still achieving required accuracies. An automated vibratory system raises and vibrates the container deck to de-aerate and densify material, stabilizing the container. According to the manufacturer, the filler's low-profile configuration allows removal of filled containers using a pallet jack, eliminating the need for a fork truck. Other features include manual fill head height adjustment (to accommodate all popular bag sizes), pneumatically-retractable bag hooks, inflatable connector to seal the bag inlet spout and a feed chute outlet port for dust-free air displacement during filling.
