Bulk bag filling with pneumatic feeding

April 7, 2004
A new automated bulk bag filling system feeds material to a cantilevered, rear post bulk bag filler using a dilute phase pneumatic gain-in-weight batching system, achieving high filling rates. The filter receiver of the pneumatic conveying system is mounted on load cells, enabling the system controller to stop the conveyor once a pre-selected batch weight, equivalent to that of one full bulk bag, has been accumulated.
