Product Description

Title Line

This bulk bag loader (also known as a bulk bag filler) is a three-layered, inflatable filling head featuring a stainless steel core fully encased in Seeflex ether-based urethane.

  • Includes external air fitting that plugs into an 8mm pneumatic air-line to inflate super strong & flexible outer layer.

  • Features built-in pressure-relief valve (set at 6psi) to avoid over-inflation

  • Top of loader simply snaps into a BFM® fitting spigot and features a fully encapsulated stainless steel ring to support lower end.

  • Inflates in seconds and seals tight on the neck of bulk bag, eliminating product leaks.

  • Much safer for workers hands as there are no pinch points.

  • Can be used on bulk bags with or without plastic liners.

NB: Pneumatic air-line is recommended to operate between 3-4 psi, up to a maximum of 6psi.

Frequently Asked Questions

Title Line
What are the maximum safe cycles of operations for BFM® Bulk Bag Loader?

BFM® Bulk Bag Loaders have been tested in excess of 1 million inflation/deflation cycles grabbing a bulk bag neck.

As your bag loader ages you may wish to reduce the operating pressure as the pressure required to grip your Bulk Bag will decrease with age.
