The Flexicon basic filler for bulk boxes, totes, bins, or other intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) loads bulk solid materials free of dust, at a low cost. The unit’s fill head can be raised or lowered using a forklift and secured with clevis pins to minimize the clearance between the rectangular dust hood and the opening of IBCs ranging from 48- to 78-in. tall.
A fill head port can be vented to a filter sock to contain displaced dust, or to a central bag house that causes a clear flexible skirt to vacuum-seal against the container's exterior, increasing dust containment effectiveness.
Performance can be enhanced by a vibratory deck to densify and stabilize the material during filling, and/or load cells that signal a PLC when to stop the flow of material by stopping a conveyor or closing a rotary valve or slide gate once a programmed weight is gained.
Rated for loads up to 6,500 lb, the frame is offered in carbon steel with durable industrial coating, with stainless-steel material contact surfaces, or in all-stainless-steel construction to industrial or sanitary standards.
The filler can be integrated with Flexicon mechanical or pneumatic conveying systems, or a user's upstream process equipment or storage vessels.
