National Bulk Equipment: Sanitary bulk-bag filling systems meet compliance standards
National Bulk Equipment’s 3-A-, USDA-, FDA-, and BISSC-compliant sanitary bulk bag filling systems are engineered, fabricated, and constructed to speed inspections, simplify integration, and ensure qualification for start-up into food processing and packaging operations.
These NBE sanitary bulk bag filler systems also support process practice protocols where 3-A Accepted Practices or other cGMPs are necessary.
These systems include features such as: 32 Ra surface finishes to simplify cleaning; tool-less, demountable assemblies to speed inspection; 3-A compliant components to aid in sanitary standards conformance; HEPA air filtration for sanitary bag inflation; and a structural framework leak-test system to facilitate clean-in-place (CIP) procedures. These sanitary bulk bag fillers also offer NTEP-certified weigh devices to assure certified weight accuracy to +/- .01%, to a 4,500 pound bag weight.
The integrated automation of NBE sanitary bulk bag fillers standardizes controls programming and expands controls functionality to include legacy systems. System-wide automation of process operations, diagnostics, and reporting are controlled through a single HMI. The integrated automation also improves equipment performance, optimizes throughput, and increases operator safety.
