General description
Portable Container FIBC big bag fill system with a capacity of 60 tons per hour.
A Big bag fill line that is completely integrated in a normal 20ft (6 meter) container.
The line is portable and can be moved to every decided place.
The machine capacity is up to 120 big bags of 500-600 kg per hour.
For 1000 kg big bags the capacity is 60 bags per hour.
The system consists of a stainless steel fill elevator with a capacity of 160 tons per hour. This
elevator discharges the product in a stainless steel hopper. Under this hopper 1 weighing
scales is installed, to weigh the product. The weighing slide discharges the product directly
into the FIBC big bag. This big bag will be removed by a roller conveyor unit. The filling of the
elevator will be done by a short transport conveyor. The filling height is 1500mm for the
intake hopper of the elevator.
The container body is made of mild steel, but elevator, container, hopper, weigh scales, fill
pipes are all constructed of stainless steel #304.
The machine works with a Penko Flex weigh indicators control unit.
The complete bag fill operation can be done by 1 operator to fill the bags and 1 operator to
close the bags. 1 or 2 forklifts move the bags away (depending on the distance).
The complete line is portable and can be moved by ship/truck into two 20ft containers. The
compressor, intake hopper and bag roll conveyors are transported in the second container.
The 2nd container is not included in the price.
Assembly of the container big bag line is
easy to do.
The machine needs to be placed on its
back side by a crane or forklift, so that the
machine is 6 m high. The elevator will be
pushed out of the container with a hydraulic
When the elevator is on its maximum
height, the total system height is 8500mm.
The roller conveyors, the intake conveyor
and intake hopper will be installed by
The container has door openings to bring
the big bags out and to have the possibility
to bring empty big bags into the container.

equipped with 1 cone outlet to have the possibility to fill the weight scale.

Container Big Bag filling Installation (FIBC) SINGLE

1 Weight hopper & 1 Electrical panel with weigh system Stainless steel 304 weight scale
hoppers with a size of 1,3 m / 1.200 kg. The scale hopper hangs under the storage hopper.
Under the storage hopper is a pneumatic valve mounted for
opening the gate under this hopper to fill the weight scale
hopper. With this valve the dosing is automatically operated
with a big opening and a fine one. The whole system is
operating with pneumatic Stainless steel cylinders of the
fabricate Teble (Fibreglass cylinder + Stainless steel
shafts). The pneumatic cylinders are operated with
Mannesmann rextroth Type 740electro pneumatic valves.
The weight scale hopper is unloading in a Stainless steel
pipe which fits in the big bag. The scale system is working
with a Penko Flex digital indicator scale. The whole unit is
operating with 24-Volt D C Power. The weighing accuracy
is 500 grams.
The whole unit can be operating full automatic and by hand
control. The big bag is standing on the conveyor. The filling

The capacity of the system is, when the conveyor removes the bag, 60 Tons per hour with
big bags of 500kg to 1.000kg. Please note that the capacity also depends of external
influences such as speed forklift filling capacity of hoppers and operators, who work with the
The big bag will be held up and closed around the filling pipe by the pneumatically operated
anti-fall-off bag holder. Before the big bag will be filled a ventilator will blow up the big bag so
the big bag has its full size. In this way the bag is standing square on the moment of filling.
The air that is coming free during the filling process is sucked out by a second ventilator. This
air is blown in a dust bag. The air amount is regulated by a valve.
The whole big bag unit is mounted in the container frame. The container is made of Mild
steel. In the big bag weigh hopper is also installed an inspection gate. Bagging unit is precabled and tested at the factory. Weigh system is suitable for Weight and Measurements.
(EU Certificate number T5582)
Filling control panel
There is an electrical switch board mounted at the side of the filling machine,
which controls the filling process. The complete unit operates full
automatically by means of a Penko weight indicator. It is also possible to put
the unit manual operation, so that all parts can be operated by hand. Then
the system only reacts on the buttons, which are mounted on the switch
panel. The switch panel is made of PVC plastic of the type Rittal with
Telemeganique electrical switches. The switch board will be delivered with
interior heating. Also the big bag discharge conveyor is connected to this panel. The
conveyor will be transporting the bags away from the filling spout as soon as the operator
pushes on the button. Complete with Siemens PLC cycle control operation.

variable gravity weights an optimal dosing is assured. This unit is
equipped with parameters for setting the admitted difference of the
weights. All settings can be put away under a menu-number into
the memory. Whole weight hopper is constructed from Stainless
steel and stands on 4 Stainless steel load-cells of 500 kg each.

Gravitation valve filler with bag clamp
The product which was weighted by the net weigher, flows by a round
tube (diameter 250mm) into the bag. On the bottom of the bagging
unit, the big bag is standing. The bag will be held up by the bag clamp
during filling. The air will be exhausted by the ventilator.
Before the big bag will be filled, its being blown up by a ventilator.
The electrical operation system single
The bag is closed by hand around the filling pipe and then blocked by the bag holder. The
filling time is 6 seconds for a 500 kg. Bag. The valve is constructed from Stainless steel
with a Fibreglass cylinder and a Stainless steel shaft. The electrical operation system is build
into a central panel complete with stainless steel indicator, main switch, control buttons and

2 x stainless steel ventilator
In the machine frame is installed 1 stainless steel ventilator to blow up the
