Overview

Here is a custom made, dry solids filling system for filling bulk boxes and flexible bags. The operation starts with a pallet from the dispenser at the beginning of the system. A plastic liner is inserted into the box. Powered conveyors accumulate pallets prior to the filling station. During the filling cycle the pallet is lifted and vibrated to lower the angle of repose. After lowering the final fill is made. Discharging the load allows the next one to automatically enter the filling station.

A dual-purpose filling head allows the box fill spout to pivot away leaving the bag fill spout accessible. A shuttle brings four-clamps to the operator to attach the bag straps. A rubber bladder inflates to seal the filling spout. The bag is also shaken during the filling cycle.

The customized system consists of seven primary devices:

  • Automatic pallet dispenser
  • Box loading and plastic liner insert station
  • Three zones of powered roller conveyors
  • Bulk box and bag filling system
  • Multi-head pouring device for bag and box
  • Vibrating weigh scale station
  • Gravity roller discharge conveyor

Description of Operation

This filling system is designed to fill bulk boxes and bulk bags up to 3,000 lbs.

  • An automatic pallet dispenser discharges an empty pallet onto the first conveyor
  • An operator places a bulk box on the pallet then inserts a plastic liner into the box
  • Each prepped load advances to the next accumulation conveyor zone
  • The fill operator wraps the liner around the spout and activates the pneumatic clamps
  • The operator presses start activate an electric liner inflating device
  • The overhead valve is signaled to open and fill 75% of the box
  • A pneumatic vibrator raises the pallet and shakes the box, settling the load
  • The pallet is then lowered for the final fill, by weight
  • The operation is similar for the FIBC filling cycle
  • An air operated shuttle with four bag clamps moves to the operator to set the bag loops
  • The bag throat is held captive while a rubber bladder inflates to seal the filling spout
  • After a predetermined weight is achieved, the bag is shaken
  • When the load is settled, the bag is filled to the required weight
  • The operator removes the straps and discharges the load
  • A new load is driven into the fill station
