Industrial Bag Handling Conveyors
Conveyors used in a bagging system may include: supply conveyors, bag closing conveyors, bag conditioning conveyors, and bag transporting conveyors.
Supply conveyors move the processed product up into the supply hopper above the bagging scale. Typical supply conveyors are: belt, auger, pneumatic or bucket.
Bag closing conveyors move the bags from the filling station to the bag closing station and are flat belt or V-belt.
Bag conditioning conveyors include: bag flatteners, bag vibrators, bag weight checkers, and bag metal detectors.
Bag transporting conveyors include: bag turners, bag kickers, and straight horizontal or incline conveyors.

Bag Closing Conveyors Bag closing conveyors move closed bags from the filling station to the bag closing station. They can be flat belt with guide rails or V-belt. In fully automated systems the transfer conveyor’s speed is synchronized with the closing equipment.
Supply Conveyors Supply or feed conveyors delivers process product to the bagger. There are 4 types of supply conveyors: auger (screw), bucket, cleated belt and pneumatic.
Transfer Conveyors Bag transfer conveyors move bags from the positioning station on to the palletizing station. Transfer conveyors can be flat &/or inclined, powered &/or gravity, straight &/or curved.
Bag Turners Bag turners are inline belt conveyors that automatically lays the bag down flat, to a bottom first position, preparing the bags for the next horizontal or inclined conveyor.
Bag Kickers Bag kickers are belt conveyors designed to automatically “kick” a bag from an upright position to a horizontal bottom-first position at 90 degrees from the bag filler.
Bag Flatteners Bag flatteners are inclining, belt conveyors that flatten filled bags for uniform stacking.
Power Belt Curved Conveyors The power belt curve is an inline, flat belt curved conveyor used to change product direction. Offered in arcs from 15° to 180° and a variety of widths up to 48”.
Gravity Roller Conveyors Gravity roller conveyors are ideal for to transporting packages, boxes, bags or pallets. They are not suitable for transporting powders, granules, or small products that can fall between the rollers.
Inline Check Weighers Inline conveyor weight checking stations weigh the bag & verify it is within established parameters. Options include: data recording, reject alarms & lights, and physical bag rejection.
Inline Metal Detectors Inline conveyor metal detectors identify ferrous and nonferrous (including stainless steel) contaminates down to 0.2 mm spheres in bagged products.
