Bulk bags have changed the way materials are stored and shipped around the world. Weigh systems measure how much dry material is being loaded into or out of a bulk bag. When filling bulk bags, the system will typically have a fast fill and dribble fill mode to optimize the cycle time. More bags filled during a shift, and minimized production time translates into increased production. After the bulk bags are filled they are then transported to the customers that will empty or discharge them into their process. This would be the second time these bags are weighed. Loaded into a frame by a fork truck the frame would sit on load cells that transmit the weight to a digital control device. The weight signal tells the operator how much material is left in the bulk bag so they can reload and keep their process running efficiently.
