NATIONAL BULK EQUIPMENT INC.: Bulk Bag Filling System
A new, automated, bulk bag filling system is available from this company. The system reportedly is designed to ensure extended duty cycles in extremely demanding operating environments. The bulk bag filler is built on a corrosion-resistant, hot-dip galvanized, stainless steel and carbon steel structural framework. Component assemblies, such as the hydraulic and pneumatic systems, are also constructed of stainless steel and have chrome-coated rods and subassemblies for long-term resistance to corrosion and oxidation. Automation controls, system utilities, and connectors are hermetically sealed to prevent damage from contact with liquids and material contaminants. The PLC and HMI enclosures are 304 stainless steel, NEMA Type 4X, and are coated with a two-part epoxy finish. The PLC and HMI enclosures are each independently air conditioned to eliminate the buildup of internal condensation. The application-specific design and construction of the filler reportedly ensures accurate, reliable, and repeatable operation at process rates of up to 30,000 lbs/hr.
