Operational description

The Flexifill BF1 is semi-automatic in bag loading and unloading but the filling cycle is fully automated.

Once the bag has been placed in the container and the lower gland located, the upper filling gland is then located in the jaws and the two hand start pressed. The bag is raised by the filling head and the filling cycle begins.

The bag is first de-capped, then the filling valve is positioned over the gland and air evacuated from the bag.

As the bag is filled it is lowered into the container whilst being monitored by the operator to ensure no creases or folds develop. When the bag has reached the desired volume set by the flowmeter or weighscale it is then re-capped and the gland released.


Typical output filling at 4 litre/sec flow rate to the filler is:

4 x 1000 litre bags/hour.
