operator placing bags on valve bag filling machines

This valve bag filling system is used to fill 50 Lb. paper valve bags with different types of high-quality silica sand.  After filling, bags are conveyed to a robotic palletizer that automatically stacks the bags on pallet.

This type of silica sand is a high-quality round and sub-round silica sand with mesh sizes ranging between 8×16 and 100.  It has many uses including:

  • turf sand used for infill to protect artificial turf and increase its life expectancy
  • roofing sand for specialty roofing tiles, flooring titles, and colored grout
  • building and industrial sands as an ideal base for construction, concrete, bricks, foundry, and flooring
  • water filtration sand used in wells, filters, and other water fixtures
  • glass sand for large quantity glass production
  • oil and gas hydraulic fracturing sand

Plastic Compounding with an Intermediate Bulk Container IBC System

An Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) System is used to prepare a homogeneous dry blend of base polymers and additives before the extrusion phase in a plastic compounding process.  Plastic compounding and toll processing companies first use an IBC system to create a lab formulation or test to confirm final product characteristics before creating a masterbatch.  Once a final product has been confirmed, the same IBC system is used to create a larger batch or production run.

This type of set up using an Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) System is also known as a decoupled system because ingredients can be moved, mixed, and blended independently inside the IBCs.
