Bulk bag/drum filler

Article-Bulk bag/drum filler

A new combination bulk bag/drum filler features a Swing-Down® fill head that pivots down for connecting empty bags at floor level, increasing the safety and speed of operation. A remote console or wall-mounted panel raises and pivots the fill head into a locked, horizontal “fill position,” inflates the bag to remove creases, starts the material flow and cuts it off upon reaching a preset weight. Optional vibratory decks de-aerate and densify the material to create a stable, shipment-ready bag. It can be switched to drum-filling mode by positioning a chute under the discharge port.
