Filling – Why Choose Bulk Bags?

No matter what the product – whether it is food or chemical, pharmaceutical or agricultural, it will need to be transported either to or from your facilities. The best option for transporting bulk solids and powders is in bulk bags or FIBCs. In this article, we will look at the positives of using bulk bags and how a bulk bag filler can help you save money.

Benefits of Bulk Bags

Bulk bags are made from woven polypropylene and can hold up between 2,000 and 4,000lbs. They are filled from the top and emptied out of the bottom which is a more ergonomic design when compared with a drum or box and there is no need for transporting on pallets which can help reduce shipping costs. When compared with small sacks, bulk bags require much less manual handling and with the help of lifting aides can be much safer. Bulk bags can also be collapsed down once they are emptied which will save space in your facilities, unlike a box or drum which will continue to take up space once they are emptied.

At Spiroflow we have three types of bulk bag fillers; the CTE, the C Series & the Base model. Whether you have low or high volume needs we have you covered. Spiroflow bulk bag fillers can fill up to 40 bags per hour & densify highly aerated material with consistent weighing accuracy.

Save Money and Space with the CTE Filler

Our Cone Table Elite (CTE) Bulk Bag Filler is one of the most versatile and capable bulk bag fillers in the industry.  Unlike other fillers, the CTE bulk bag filler features our patented cone table densification system which vibrates the bag to densify the material in the bag.
