Bulk Bag Filler for Petroleum Coke Located Under Surge Hopper

Bulk Bag Filler for Petroleum Coke Located Under Surge Hopper

This Bulk Bag Filling Equipment was used to fill bulk bags (FIBC) with petroleum coke, or “pet” coke.  The material is fed into a surge hopper,  through the inflatable bag head, and then into the bag.  A pneumatic slide gate is used to start and stop the flow of material.  The bulk bag filling equipment did not include a scale because weight accuracy was not a project requirement.  Once the bag has been filled, it is removed from the loader using a fork lift and placed into shipping containers for export overseas.
