Original Press Release:

Low Profile Bulk Bag Filler with Explosion Proof Controls

BETHLEHEM, PA - Flexicon has introduced a TWIN-CENTERPOST™ Bulk Bag Filler with XP controls and reduced height posts for low headroom applications.  It is equipped with a manual fill head height adjustment to accommodate smaller bag sizes, pneumatically retractable bag hooks, an inflatable connector to seal the bag inlet spout, and a feed chute outlet port for dust-free air displacement during filling.

A NEMA 7/9 explosion-proof electrical system controls the automated vibratory densification/ deaeration deck which stabilizes the bag for storage and shipment.

The dual post frame is a patented design that maximizes strength and improves accessibility to bag hooks while simplifying construction and reducing cost.  It is constructed of carbon steel with durable industrial coating, with product contact surfaces of stainless steel.  Also available in all-stainless construction finished to sanitary standards, it is the first bulk bag filler to receive USDA acceptance.

The filler is available with a FLEXICON® flexible screw conveyor, FLEXI-DISC® tubular cable conveyor or PNEUMATI-CON® dilute-phase pneumatic conveying system to deliver a full range of bulk materials from nearby or distant upstream sources. 

The company also manufactures bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, bag dump stations, drum/box/container dumpers, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
