Filling & Discharge


PEI Bag Company offers a number of filling options. The type that best suits you will be determined by the requirements of your machinery and the type of product to be stored. If damage to product isn't a concern, a top may not be necessary. If damage or exposure to the environment is a concern, a duffel top with draw string may provide a better option. To customize your option according to need, spouts and other filling systems can be attached. Please see diagram below for standard filling and discharge options.
