Safe, Sanitary USDA-Accepted Bulk Bag Filling Systems

August 26, 2010

The bulk bag filling systems are engineered, fabricated, and constructed to USDA-accepted guidelines to simplify integration and start-up of bulk bag filling systems into sanitary processing and packaging operations. The bulk bag filling systems include features such as 32 Ra surface finishes to simplify cleaning; tool-less, demountable assemblies to speed inspection; 3-A compliant components to aid in sanitary standards conformance; HEPA air filtration for sanitary bag inflation; and a structural framework leak test system to facilitate clean-in-place (CIP) procedures. The bulk bag fillers also offer NTEP-certified weigh devices to assure certified weight accuracy to +/- .01-percent, to a 4,500 pound bag weight.
