A dosing valve is placed directly beneath an existing silo, allowing for automatic dosing with both a coarse and a fine flow. The entire system operates using pneumatic stainless steel cylinders, with a stainless steel pipe situated below the valve that fits into a big bag mouth to guide the fertilizer flow.The unit is powered by 24-Volt DC.
Although this machine is similar to the Big Bag 4 Loops and Pallet, there are differences in the weighing process. With this machine, the big bag is suspended from a weigh scale equipped with hooks that keep it in place, and weighing is performed above the big bag using load cells and a Penko Indicator.
The filling bag hangs in the weighframe.
The unit has a capacity of 0-40 tons per hour for 1000 kg big bags when the bag is transported on a pallet. For bags of 500 kg, the maximum capacity is 20 tons or 40 bags per hour.
The capacity of the unit is dependent on both the quality of the product and the operators’ skills.
