This stainless steel, sanitary Bulk Bag Filler detects and seperates metal as it fills bulk bags by weight, dust-free. The filler frame is a patented TWIN-CENTERPOST design that maximizes 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 deaeration/densification system to maximize capacity and stabilize the bag for storage and shipment. The filler can be integrated with optional conveyor feed systems including flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors and pneumatic conveying systems, as well as existing plant conveyors or overhead storage vessels.
