How Do C Series Bulk Bag Fillers Work?
Processors worldwide rely on bulk bags for the packaging, storage, and transportation of materials. Spiroflow’s extensive line of bulk bag-filling equipment offers a range of advantages, making the process of filling bulk bags safer, more efficient, controllable, contained, and cost-effective. These benefits are particularly valuable when integrated with conveyor belt systems. Don’t worry – Spiroflow, one of the leading belt conveyor manufacturers, has you covered with reliable and user-friendly technologies.
Our ongoing development of weighing and filling stations provides processors with the flexibility to choose between standard equipment or tailored solutions to accommodate specific requirements, whether related to accessibility, height, or safety considerations. What sets our bulk bag filling stations apart is their exceptional versatility. They can be adapted for use with rigid IBCs, drums, or octabins, extending their utility across various container types and seamlessly integrating into existing conveyor belt solutions for enhanced material handling
C Series Bulk Bag Fillers Sequence of Operations
With our C Series bulk bag fillers, simplicity and ease of operation are a must. The basic operational sequence unfolds as follows:
- Place the bag loops of empty bulk bags over the support arms or bag support hooks.
- Attach the bag spout or liner over the inflatable neck seal.
- Adjust the height of the bag support arms (if selected).
- Inflate the neck seal to secure the bag spout or liner.
- Inflate the bag or liner with air (or there is an added nitrogen option).
- Commence filling by weight or volume.
- Apply vibration (if required).
- When the bag is filled to its target weight or volume, deflate the neck seal and tie the bag spout or liner closed.
- Engage the automatic loop release (if selected).
Key Factors to Consider Before Choosing the Best Conveyor Technologies for Your Needs
Before choosing a specific bulk bag filler, it is crucial to take into account several essential factors. This process serves a dual purpose: it aids in evaluating the unique requirements of the customer and facilitates our design engineers in identifying the most suitable tubular drag, belt, or flexible screw conveyor system to meet those requirements.
Here are some of the most important questions to ask yourself when choosing the right conveyor solutions for your manufacturing process.
We have the option to handle it either by pallet or by utilizing the bag loops.
To determine the appropriate bag style and size at this stage, it is advisable to consult both the bag manufacturer and Spiroflow. The bag should be optimized in terms of volume for safe storage and transportation. Notably, Spiroflow has achieved impressive results with Ameriglobe’s Fusion Baffle Bag, which is made without sewing and, in most cases, does not necessitate a liner.
To effectively control dust during the filling process, we employ an inflatable neck seal. All our filling heads are equipped with an inner product flow and an outer annulus for dust evacuation. Additionally, there is a dust extraction port included.
If you opt for volume-based filling, it is recommended to consider options such as pallet dispensers, automatic bag loop release, and bag take-off and accumulation conveyors. These features can be added to standard Spiroflow bulk bag-filling equipment at a later date.
In cases where the environment poses an explosion risk, it is advisable to consider static dissipative or groundable bags along with a suitable static monitoring device.
Nitrogen purging is an alternative. Conventionally, bags are inflated with air before filling, but nitrogen can be used instead to extend the product’s shelf life.
For very fine products, it is likely necessary to use a bag liner to prevent leakage or moisture ingress. However, there are various alternatives available, such as coated bags or specialized bag seams. It is crucial to ensure proper inflation of the liner to prevent creasing and subsequent discharge issues.
In most cases, yes. Vibration at the base of the unit is employed to deaerate and compact the product, optimizing bag volume and creating a safe and stable load. The CTE bulk bag filler utilizes our patented Cone Table densification for highly aerated powders.
Automatic loop release is available, although height adjustment is not offered on the CS Base Filler. The C-Series & CTE bulk bag fillers do offer height adjustment. Automatic loop release for filled bags is a practical labor-saving option for bags loaded on pallets. Additionally, powered height adjustment is recommended when filling different-sized bulk bags to expedite the filling process.
Certainly. Spiroflow provides a range of options for filling rigid bins, drums, and boxes/octabins.
MODELS & SPECIFICATIONS
Our C Series gain-in-weight bulk bag fillers are available in a variety of configurations. Our models are as follows:
Two vertical tubes are affixed to a steel base plate, allowing for the vertical adjustment of the horizontal loop support arms. An upper frame, securely attached above the two loop arms, provides support for the filling nozzle. This structural design ensures that the filling process remains steady and precise, even when integrated with conveyor belts for seamless material transport. To enhance stability, the sliding sections are thoughtfully equipped with locking pins, contributing to a secure and robust operation.
If the filling process is based on weight measurement, the lower steel frame is positioned on four load cells. These load cells boast a 200% overload capacity with a 100% section capacity and hold an NTEP rating. They come standard with a 5,000 Division accuracy. To remove filled bags, the neck is released from the filling spout, and the pallet with the filled bag is lifted a few inches using a forklift. Then, the bag can be backed out of the filler.
An alternative design is also available for the removal of bulk bags, which involves utilizing their loops.

Really Big Jobs
36,000 tons in 27,000 bulk bags in Alaska, all in only 14 weeks! Two Spirofil bulk bag fillers were delivered and operational in 6 weeks.
Complete Systems & Semi-automated Filling Systems
This is where we truly excel. We take care of everything from concept to commissioning.
A semi-automated filling system gives large volume users the benefit of continuous operation without having to stop and unload each bag or gaylord. Pallets are automatically fed to the filling rig and the bags are looped onto pneumatically operated hooks. Once filling is completed, the loops are automatically released and the bag is then moved along the line by a powered take-off conveyor.
