Flour is a finely ground grain that is used in various food products and as a basic ingredient of baked goods. Typical grains ground into flour are corn, rice, rye, barley, wheat, oats, and sorghum.
In most conditions, flour is considered a free-flowing dusty powder, and an open-mouth bag filler is used. Depending on the application, flour is packaged in different size bags. For the retail industry, flour is packaged in 2, 5 & 10 lb. paper bags. The baking industry usually requires flour in 50-80 lb. sacks or 200-2,000 lb. totes (FIBC).
For low volume start ups we recommend: the Logical S-4 bagger and the Packrite PMJS bag sealer.
For the higher volume baking industry, we recommend: the Chantland Model 4198 gross weigh auger feeder, the Fischbein Model DRC 300 bag sealer
