Instead, two alternating fill stations were proposed such that while Station 1 was busy filling a bulk bag, a filled bag on Station 2 could be removed and replaced with an empty bag without any interruption to the continuous flow of product. The system also featured a paddle conveyor, vision inspection, metal detection with automatic rejection of contaminated product, and sanitary stainless-steel conveyors. Selecpac USA provided all controls for a turnkey system solution including installation assistance, start-up, and training.
Although the ultimate solution was different than originally concepted by the client, the project was completed on time and in budget. Eliminating the potential headaches of product accumulation was a welcome relief for plant operations. Bulk bags were filled fast and accurately to meet the demands of the customers.
