Compacting to Fill Large Bag Containers to a Specific Weight

Compacting to Fill Large Bag Containers to a Specific Weight

A NetterVibration customer was filling large bag containers with a bulk solid to a specific weight. During the filling process, the feeder poured the material into the bag until it reached the desired weight, then stopped. However, the product being fed into the bag formed a cone-shaped mound, leaving space inside the container around the mound and the material needed to be flattened. This filling and compacting process was repeated until the desired final weight was reached and the container could be sealed.

The customer placed the container on a VTFW 10/12 vibrating table with scale with two NEG 25930 electric external vibrators installed, which is open on one side so that the pallet can be inserted onto the table from the side using only a hand pallet truck. Upon reaching the desired weight, a scale triggered the vibrators to turn on, flattening the angle of repose and compacting the contents of the bag. This enabled the customer to use the smallest container possible and fill it completely, minimizing shipping costs.
