Selecting the right filling equipment is all about your own exclusive situation and requirements within your facility. Some of the common filling equipment for FIBC bags is mentioned below:
Stand-alone fillers: These are one of the most popular types of automated big bag filler. They can be operated easily, simple in design, and can work in extensive range of facilities.

Just affix the bag at the top, auto-fill, discontinue and disconnect. These fillers can be added easily to a conveyer line or fill FIBCs on pallets.
