GEA Avapac bulk bag fillers are designed to pack a wide variety of powdered products into flexible bags. Features including bag inflation and base compaction maximize the available volume of the bag and result in a stable pack which reduces the risk of spillage and resulting product loss. Using a unique top weighing system, the GEA Avapac range of bulk bag fillers ensure reliable and accurate filling by eliminating the effect of bag inflation on final fill weight. Height adjustment enables this system to handle a wide range of bag sizes and fill weights, thereby offering a flexible solution to the dairy and food ingredients industry.

High rate Bulk bag filler

The FLB 800 uses the same top weighing technology and has the unique feature of gantry bag handling. Using a motorized gantry trolley, the filled bag can be automatically taken from the filling head to the awaiting palletizing system. As a result, the packing room floor is free from equipment which enables thorough cleaning to be carried out. This system is ideal for sanitary operations typically found in dairy and food ingredient plants.

GEA Avapac Sanitary Bulk Bag Filler BLF-500
GEA Avapac Sanitary Bulk Bag Filler BLF-500

The FLB 500 is a reliable and easy to operate bulk bag filler which comprises a stainless steel support frame and filling system. Height adjustment enables this system to handle a wide range of bag sizes and fill weights, thereby offering a flexible solution to the dairy and food ingredients industry. Single sided operation means that the operator can load, fill and unload the bag from a single platform, which reduces the number of movements required. The result is a safe and efficient operation, which is ideally suited to higher throughput systems. An auto-release system is provided to release the bag once filled, thereby further reducing the workload on the operator. Using two FLB 500 fillers in tandem with a single product feed system, filling rates in excess of 10 bags/hour are possible for one operator.
