Types of bag filling equipment.
Valve Type Bag Filling Scales
Valve type baggers fill 5-120 lb. bags through a “valve” in the top side of the bag. This greatly reduces the amount of product lost and dust created as opposed to pouring product into an open mouth bag. Valve baggers are available with gravity, impeller, auger, air packer or compaction feeders.
Open Mouth Baggers
Open mouth baggers are available as gross weigh or net weigh bag filler with either a mechanical or electronic digital scale for 5-120 lb. bags. Auger, belt, gravity or vibratory feeders are available.
Small weighment baggers are typically used for open mouth bags weighing less than 10 lbs. Some small weighment baggers can fill bags little as 1oz.
Bulk Bagging Equipment
Bulk bag fillers are used to fill 1,000-4,000 super sacks which are sometimes called: big bags, totes, Gaylord boxes or FIBCs (flexible intermediate bulk containers). Bulk bag unloaders empty super sack's contents into smaller bags or onto an in-feed conveyor.
Automated Bagging Systems
Fully automated bagging systems may include the following: bag placer, bag former, bag filler, check weigh conveyor, transfer conveyor, bag closer (sew or seal), bag positioning (turner/kicker) conveyor, bag flattening conveyor, bag transport (horizontal or incline) conveyor & bag palletizer.
Automated Bag Positioners
Automated bag positioners are located before the filling station. Bag posioners grab the open mouth bag from a flat stack, open the bag, and postion/hang it on the fill shute of the bag filler.
Depending on your weighing requirements, Inpak Systems offers a complete line of table top bench scales, table top counting scales, portable floor scales and pallet scales.
Form-fill-seal (FFS) automated and semi-automated bagging systems are designed to form/open a poly bag/pouch which is then manually or automatically filled with the product and then sealed closed.
