BBS series Automatic FIBC Fillers

GEA automatic FIBC fillers are designed to pack food, dairy and nutraceutical powders into big bags, super sacks, bins and BossPak containers. Our BBS automatic range can fill containers at varying rates up to 10 metric tonnes/hr.

GEA can offer two models of automatic FIBC filler - the BBS-S and BBS-D. These systems comprise either a single or double gantry trolley configuration for handling and transfer of filled bags. Our hygienic filling head design ensures that the bags are safely held and filled to a high level of accuracy. An inert gas packing option (Modified Atmosphere Packing) means that GEA can provide solutions to meet the needs of export customers who require increased shelf life for their products.

BBS-S FIBC Filler

The BBS-S FIBC System has a Single Operating station and utilizes our "top weighing" system. An overhead gantry bag handling system supports the bag throughout the entire filling process. 

Using the automated trolley, the filled bag  is transferred out of the high care area to the low care area where it is placed onto a pallet. This means that there is no need to have wooden pallets inside the high care area (high hygiene area).
This makes the system ideal for sanitary powder filling operations which are typically found in dairy and food ingredient plants.

Intended Use

  • Production under full hygiene  condition where pallets are not allowed in  filling area
  • No requirements for MAP
  • No requirements for bag closure other than “gooseneck/CableTie”
  • Application where stability of the bag on pallet is required
  • Separation of filling and palletizing  area

Key Features

  • Single Operating Station – Semi Automatic
  • Bag Suspended during filling
  • Bag Range 1- 2.2 m
  • Weighing during filling
  • Bag compaction available
  • Bag transfer and place on pallet outside
  • No MAP
  • No Heat Sealer
  • No Heat Sealing

 

BBS-D FIBC Filler

The  BBS-D Big Bag System has a Double Operating Station and utilizes GEA's top weighing technology and has the unique feature of gantry bag handling system, where the bag is supported from the top bag loops throughout the entire filling process. Depending on the application the BBS-D can have a second motorized trolley added to help maximise bag throughput when a modified atmosphere packing (M.A.P) application is required. 

Using a single or double motorized gantry trolley, the filled bag  is automatically transferred out of the high care area to the low care area where it is placed on a pallet automatically.. Thus no wooden pallets inside the high care area (clean room).
This system is ideal for sanitary operations typically found in dairy and food ingredient plants.

Intended Use

  • Production under full hygiene  condition where pallets are not allowed in  filling area
  • MAP is required
  • Heat Sealing is required
  • Application where stability of the bag on pallet is required
  • Separation of filling and palletizing  area
  • Higher throughput than BBS-S

Key Features

  • Double Operating  Station – Semi Automatic
  • Bag Suspended during filling
  • Bag Range 1- 2.2 m
  • Weighing during filling
  • Bag compaction available
  • Bag transfer and place on pallet outside
  • MAP – optional
  • Heat Sealer – optional
  • Single or Double Carriage- optional
