Bulk Bag Filler with Quick Release Safety Hook Option

November 5, 2013

Hapman bulk bag filler with Quick Release Safety HookThe new Quick Release Safety Hook option on Hapman’s bulk bag filler keeps bulk bag straps firmly in place during filling and automatically detaches with a flip of a switch once the bag is full. The alloy steel hooks are designed with an engineered safety latch that allows operators to load and unload bulk bags easily and securely, eliminating slippage and injuries associated with the manual detachment of heavy bulk bags. Once the bag straps are snapped into place and bulk material loading begins, the frame can be adjusted up or down until the bottom of the bulk bag sits securely on the loading platform. Once filling is complete, the operator uses the integral control panel to engage two pneumatic actuators that simultaneously and quickly release the four bulk bag straps. Powered using available plant air, the actuators allow for a smooth, safe and easy release of bulk bags; increasing the efficiency of your process and decreasing the risk of operator injuries.
