Bulk Bag Filling Station
Dispense Pallet -> Fill -> Weigh -> Pack -> Convey -> Repeat
This FIBC (Super Sack) bulk bag filling station features automatic pallet dispensing, bag hooks that retract toward the operator, automatic weighing, densification, and conveying. This station has it all – a turn-key package that saves on labor costs and measurement accuracy.
We call this the FWP-7000 bulk bag filling station. The FWP stands for “Fill – Weigh – Pack”. The elegant operation of this PLC-run station fills, accurately weighs, and packs your material in a single operation. Our patented densifier fills bags with up to 20% more product, saving space and efficiency in storage. Our densifier is so efficient that we have clients that stack bags on top of each other.
The FWP-7000 bulk bag filling station is available with or without conveyors. The unit is accessible from all four sides and can be oriented to fit your location. Attachments for filling drums, boxes, and totes are available.
The FWP-7000 Bulk Bag Filling Station fills the same way, the right way, every time. Savings are realized in manpower required, filling accuracy, reduced bulk bag cost, improved storage, and reduced shipping charges.

Seamless Inflatable Cuff
The FWP-7000’s Seamless Inflatable Cuff, manufactured of food-grade neoprene, expands against the inside of the bulk bag fill spout, sealing the opening to guard against product contamination and to control dust. All product contact points are constructed of stainless steel. An internal passage in the product fill spout allows the evacuation of dust during the filling cycle. A remote push button is provided to inflate and deflate the cuff.
Bag Inflation, Motorized Height Adjustment, Product Valve
A system to inflate the bulk bag before starting the filling cycle is housed within the air intake filter. An exhaust air filter assembly can be added or a connection to your existing dust collection system can be made to capture displaced air from the bulk bag.
The motorized height adjustment includes a motor, a gear reducer, lead screws with bronze nuts in each leg, and chain and sprockets to tie the system together. The upper and lower limits are controlled by a proximity switch.
The product valve to control the flow of your material is attached to your product source. A flexible hose then connects the valve to the bulk bag filling machine.
