Experience that makes a difference for you

Exact design based on your requirements and the product properties for a maximum of process security – even with products that are more difficult to handle.

Simple standard-solutions and complex emptying and filling systems with many functions such as conveying, de-dusting, weighing or dosing.

Modular concepts: special, individual constructions possible – from low-dust to containment.

High-quality materials and sophisticated constructions for fault-free operation and a long lifetime.

Whether in batch or continuous operation, hygiene-sensitive production, containment areas or explosion protection zones – we have the right design.

Big Bag Handling | made by Engelsmann:
For chemical, plastics, pharmaceutical and food industries. And your sector.

Emptying, Filling, Containment:
the Big Bag Handling ABC of Engelsmann

Big Bag Emptying

How do I get the Big Bags into the station? Do I need discharge aids, and if so, which? What should I do if there is dust? And then, how do I get my product into production? You can find out more about our emptying range here and get some valuable tips for efficient and safe Big Bag emptying. Especially for hygienic zones.

Big Bag Filling

Our filling stations are modular and available in various versions. Customers can choose between various filler heads, weighing systems and control options. In our filling range you can also find combined systems for combined filling of Big Bags and other packages like containers or barrels.

Containment Systems

Many toxic or highly active substances must be handled with suitable equipment like containment solutions. These systems minimize the escape of material particles into the plant environment. Read here how you can protect operators and products adequately during your Big Bag emptying and filling processes.
