The big bag has become a permanent fixture in bulk material handling. It is cheap, easy to handle and simply a practical container. AZO, the reliable partner for powder handling and process automation with 60 years’ experience in engineering, offers several solutions for filling big bags.
AZO designs big bag powder filling systems according to the needs of the customer. Therefore, most big bags available in the market can be filled.
Big bag filling systems can either be equipped with volumetric or with gravimetric filling systems. For internal use, volumetric dosing systems are sufficient. In this case, the operator monitors the filling level of the big bag visually.
For more precise weight requirements, the big bag filling systems can be equipped with a floor scale, placed on load cells or with an overhead scale. The filling is done by dosing the powder until a specific point is reached.
A higher accuracy is achieved by combining coarse and fine dosing. AZO dosing screws are fulfilling highest engineering standards to ensure good dosing behavior. Calibration of both types of scales is possible. The big bag filling process can be automated as far as possible by using an automatic loop holder.If required ATEX-compliant solutions depending on zoning and powder material can be supplied.
