The new Dual Bulk Bag Filling System integrates two Swing-Down® Bulk Bag Fillers with a Pallet Dispenser and Powered Roller Conveyors, allowing safe, high capacity filling of bulk bags of all popular sizes. Programmable controls allow the fillers to operate separately or simultaneously, filling bags of the same size or two different sizes. When a filling cycle is initiated by push button or contact closure, pallet dispenser forks lower the stack of pallets onto the roller conveyor, withdraw from the bottom pallet and raise the remaining pallets, allowing the roller conveyor equipped with photoelectric eyes to move the dispensed pallet into position below the filling station. The bag connection frame of the Swing-Down fill heads lower and then pivot to a vertical position, allowing an operator at floor level to safely and quickly attach bag straps to automated latches, slide the bag spout over an inflatable spout seal, and press a spout seal inflation button. The system then automatically pivots the bag connection frame back to horizontal, raises the entire fill head, inflates the bag to remove creases, fills the bag at a high rate, finishes filling accurately at dribble feed rate, deflates the spout seal, releases the bag loops, raises the fill head to disengage the spout, rolls the bag out of the filling area, and rolls a new pallet into place to begin another cycle.
