BIG BAG FILLING - Containment, densification and BULK weighing

The filling station 's structure is easily adjustable to condition big bags of various heights. The tensioning cylinder, the fan and the vibrating table give an optimal shape to the big bag. The vibrating table , on the other hand, ensures the deaeration of low-density products.

The FlowMatic® 03 filling system has a filling rate ranging from 10 to 20 big bags per hour.

Operating mode : 

1. Installation of the big bag on the packaging station 
2. The big bag spout is fixed to the filling head by means of an inflatable seal which ensures dust containment during operation. 
3. Tensioning of the big bag with the pneumatic cylinder 
4. The pre-forming fan inflates and shapes the big bag (FIBC) 
5. Inflating fan is deactivated and another fan used for reverse jet filtration of the big bag is switched on 
6. Big bag filling starts with high flow rate capability 
7. Big bag comes to rest on its pallet and the vibrating table ensures stability of the big bag during filling and handling
8. Vibrating table further ensures densification of material with intermittent operation throughout the filling process 
9. Load cells allow for weight management via a low speed switch to adjust the flow rate for final dosing 
10. End of the filling process, the forks lower and the seal deflates. The big bag is ready to be unloaded 
11. Removal of the big bag can commence by forklift, pallet truck or by the bag straps

The FlowMatic® 03 big bag filling station incorporates all the necessary options for an efficient filling and dust containment operation. These features include the inflatable containment seal, big bag hanging deck with pneumatic cylinder height adjustment, big bag shaping fan, big bag weighing system (dosing), optional commercial weighing and vibrating densification table. The adjustable structure enables the conditioning of big bags of various heights and dimensions. The filling head is designed with a double casing to relieve back pressure during filling as well as containment of dust emissions into the atmosphere. The tension cylinder and the fan allow the big bag to be pre-formed for optimal filling.Finally, the vibrating table also ensures that the handling of the packed big bag is safe by avoiding the risk of tipping.

The FlowMatic®03 big bag filling station has a filling rate ranging from 10 to 20 big bags per hour.

Technical specification

Rate 10 to 20 big bags/h.
Capacity 2 ton/big bag
Manufacturing materials Mild steel, 304L stainless steel
Installed power 3 kW
Compressed air consumption 0.9 Nm³/h.
Dust removal rate 300 m³/h.

Finishing touches: RAL 9006, micro-blasted, electropolishing
Average power consumption: 0.2kW
Operating pressure: 6 bar
Digital input: 6
Digital output: 6
Accuracy of the weighing chain: ± 500 grams
Maximum size of big bags: 1,550 (l ) x 1,550 (L) x 2,400 (H) mm
U-shaped forks: allow the removal of the big bag by the handles (optional)

Equipment integrated into the FLOWMATIC 03 model:

- Round hooking forks of the big bag: offers easier sliding of the big bag handles.
- U-shaped forks for attaching the big bag handles: allow the big bag to be evacuated directly through the handles using a forklift truck (no pallet is used).
Support structure: the structure is manually adjustable in height to fit all types of big bags- Width adjustment: the spacing of the hooking forks is adjustable in width to optimize the filling operation but provides a greater stability of the flexible container on its pallet.
- Inflatable seal: the inflatable seal ensures a tight connection between the filling head and the big bag during the filling operation.
- Filling head: the filling head is designed in a double casing for volume balancing. The charged air is evacuated through the degassing line which can be connected to the dedusting network.
- Tension cylinder: the pneumatic cylinder is located on the deck of the suspension forks. It allows to bring the system for attaching the handles of the big bag to ergonomic height, to adjust to the different big bag heights and to give an optimal shape to the big bag thanks to the permanent tensioning during the whole conditioning phase. The big bag is perfectly filled without any risk of pocketing and can be handled safely, without any risk of it tipping over.
- Pre-inflation fan: implanted on the station, the fan ensures the shaping of the big bag equipped with an internal bag to facilitate its filling. A by-pass valve makes it possible to degas the fines that are captured by the double-cased tube during the conditioning phase.


Available options

  • Bulk bag filling system conveyor - Bulk powder handling
    Bulk bag filling system conveyor - Bulk powder handling


    The big bag placed upon the pallet is removed thanks to a motorized roller conveyor, thus optimizing production.

  • Bulk bag filling system - Rotating head
    Bulk bag filling system - Rotating head

    Rotating head

    System allowing the ergonomic implementation of the empty big bag. Designed using a high-strength bearing, a simple rotation (+ 180°/-180°) of the attachment system allows the operator to position the 4 handles of the big bag from his workstation.

    The automatic release of the handles, once the big bag filled, completes the system and makes it a particularly suitable equipment for high packaging rates.

    The enclosed unit incorporates the pre-inflation fan, allowing its use in difficult environments also subject to strong hygiene constraints.

  • Bulk bag filling system - Bulk powder handling
    Bulk bag filling system - Bulk powder handling

    Mobile station

    The bagging stations can integrate handling sleeves allowing the handling of the assembly on the forklift truck or pallet truck.
    These mobile big bag packaging stations allow the conditioning of the big bags under separate feeding points or truck loading spouts.

    Versions with rails and wheels are available as standard at Palamatic Process.

  • Bulk bag filling one loop - Bulk powder handling
