Flexicon Sanitary Bulk Bag Filler with metal detection

Flexicon Corporation has introduced a stainless steel, sanitary Bulk Bag Filler that detects and separates metal as it fills bulk bags by weight, dust-free. The filler frame is a patented Twin Centerpost design that maximises strength, reduces cost and improves accessibility to bag hooks. It is equipped with an integral metal detector/separator that detects metal in the free-fall stream of material entering the filler, and then ejects it through a chute that discharges into a removable drum at the rear of the unit. The filler also incorporates: fill head height adjustment to accept all popular bag sizes; an inflatable cuff forming a high-integrity seal to the bag inlet spout; a blower to remove bag creases prior to filling; load cells for filling by weight; a vent port for dust-free air displacement during filling; pneumatically retractable bag hooks; and an automated vibratory de aeration/densification system to maximise capacity and stabilise the bag for storage and shipment. The bulk bag filler has been accepted by the USDA, and is constructed of 316 stainless steel, finished to sanitary standards and configured with full-length forklifting tubes allowing it to be moved throughout the plant.
