National Bulk Equipment: NTEP-certified weigh system for bulk bag filling

Designed to eliminate variable weights and material loss, NBE’s fully-automated NTEP-certified weigh systems for bulk bag filling help ensure accurate, repeatable weighing to +/- .01% up to a total fill weight of 4,500 lbs.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Filling/sealing  > Bulk filling

Design-stage integration of weigh devices and proper calibration and fabrication during system construction help eliminate variable weight outcomes and material waste from bolt-on load cells or third-party NTEP scale components. The weigh systems meet rigorous certification testing standards, including producing over 7,000 consecutive weigh cycles, each within a +/- .01% weight accuracy tolerance.

A single, menu-driven HMI, designed and built by NBE, controls all equipment automation including automatic pallet introduction, automated metering of non free-flowing material, NTEP-certified weighing, and powered outfeed and indexing of filled bulk bags.
