All installations for conveying and feeding have the ability for single or multiple point feeding and discharge points allowing huge flexibility with minimal additional componentry. The units can be ordered as basic units and can have options added to the units at a later date when factory expansion requires. Discuss this with your local Bradwood Packaging Sales representative.[/spoiler] [spoiler intro=”Bulk Bag Filling Support Frame »”]

To protect your Workers from OH&S issues involved in placing and removing bulk bags, the Bulk Bag Filling system should be designed to keep them safe at all times.

Upper and lower bulk bag unloader frame combine to safely support and contain the bulk bag and its materials. The bulk bag is loaded into the bag frame by a dedicated hoist, forklift, crane or persons, depending on speeds required.

Forklift Loading

The Frame of Bulk Bag Filling System has been designed with a standard capacity of 2000 kg and is constructed of 100mm RHS. The upper frame section has 1000mm of height adjustability to accommodate the different size bags.

Hand Loading

Hand loading the empty bulk bags is the most common method of placing the bags. The bags placement has been designed, with a number of options to help the operators improve the speed of filling more bags.


A complete lower frame is available for applications where customers have an existing Crane Hoist Monorail System.[/spoiler] [spoiler intro=”Bulk Bag Hangers »”]

The bulk bag is attached to a bag hanger for raising and positioning the bag into the Bulk Bag Filling support frame. All bag hangers allow easy attachment of the bag loops while securely holding the bag in place within the Bulk Bag Filling System.

Bag hangers can add options to retain bulk bag liners and prevent bag liners from extruding through the discharge spout into the downstream process equipment during bulk bag filling.

Bradwood Packaging systems go beyond simple bulk storage systems with further componentry for a complete materials handling solution from start to finish. Other products in our range include bulk bags fillers / emptiers, storage bins and hoppers, rotary valves, mixers, diverter valves, bin activation, augers, mechanical & pneumatic conveyors, bucket elevators, batch weighers, packaging machinery. Please see our videos of our bulk materials equipment as well as our turn key plant solutions.[/spoiler] [spoiler intro=”Bulk Bag Placing »”]

The operator has various options to access the discharge spout of the Bulk Bag Filling system, depending on the bag style and dry material flow characteristics. The Bulk Bag Filling System has been designed to give user-friendly access to open and seal the bulk bag’s spout. It provides dust-free and complete material discharge from the bag as well.[/spoiler] [spoiler intro=”How Does the Bulk Bag Filling System Weigh Your Product? »”]

Weigh & volumetric can be combined to offer a weighing solution, allowing the speed of a volumetric filler with the accuracy of net weighing.

Our system uses scale feedback to monitor the filler and correct any inaccuracy. You won’t want to deliver too much or too little to the consumer, but you will want to pack as fast as possible.

The biggest headaches in packing & filling is the dreaded bottleneck. The speed of your plant is determined by your constraints, which often is the filler and the check weigher.

So you need to match your weighing system to the same speed as a machine can fill. There’s no point having super fast filling, if the weighing, becomes a bottleneck.

Volume: Using a servo-drive to control the acceleration, speed and number of revolutions to dispense the required amount of product. We achieve speeds of up to 5000rpm and stop in 0.2 seconds with this technology. This is the lowest cost and fastest solution with an option to weigh samples and correct fills by weight. Without this scale feedback, you rely on manual adjustment of a product with good volumetric repeatabilty.

Weight: Using scales to accurately control the servo system to the required fill. The system uses programmable fill points for fast and slow-feed into your container. This method is used for non-homogeneous powders where the repeat accuracy of each volumetrically delivered amount is not consistent and weighing while filling is the best solution.

Combination: Using both Volume & Weigh filling to maximize container capacity

Use volumetric filling to fill your container to 95% of it’s final weight and then index to the weigh station to top up precisely. At higher capital cost, this option offers the benefit of filling accurately by weight with high throughput. It suits most auger suitable powders.

Weigh & volumetric can be combined to offer a weighing solution, allowing the speed of volumetric with the accuracy of net weighing filling.[/spoiler] [spoiler intro=”Conveying & Processing Interfaces »”]

A wide variety of options are available to integrate bulk bag unloaders with material conveying systems and downstream process equipment. The material flow characteristics and the specifics of the customer’s bulk bag filling application dictate the type of bulk bag discharger interface utilized.

Surge Hopper

Surge Hoppers with various capacity, can be utilised to provide continuous material supply while removing empty bags and loading full bags into the Bulk Bag Emptier. The inlet to the surge hoppers are typically connected to a bag spout interface option while the discharge is often connected to a conveying system.

Agitator Hopper

This U-shaped hopper has a mechanical agitator which eliminates the potential of material bridging or forming a rat hole above the inlet to material conveying equipment. The design of the agitator draws the material away from the sides, directing it through the center discharge on a consistent and reliable basis.

Combination Hopper

The combination hopper allows filling of small bags, sacks, drums, and other containers in addition to bulk bags. Combination hoppers can be fitted integral dust collectors or tube stubs for connection to centralized dust collection systems.

Size Reduction Equipment

Rotating shaft(s) with staggered breaker bars deagglomerates materials as they pass through stators to reduce materials to a conveyable particle size.

Feeder Systems

Volumetric and loss-in-weight feeders are utilised to control the transfer of materials directly from the bulk bag discharger to conveying or downstream process equipment.[/spoiler] [spoiler intro=”Associated Equipment »”]
