Bulk bag filler includes metal detection capabilities

Has USDA acceptance

The Flexicon stainless steel, sanitary bulk bag filler has an integral metal detector/separator that detects metal in the free-fall stream of dry material and ejects it through a chute that discharges it into a removable drum at the rear of the unit. The filler offers fill head height adjustment to accept all popular bag sizes; an inflatable cuff that forms a seal to the bag inlet spout; a blower that removes 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. Constructed of 316 stainless steel finished to sanitary standards, the filler is configured with full-length forklifting tubes that allow it to be moved throughout a plant.
