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 the retail flour industry we recommend: the Weigh Right Model PMB 3600 vibratory net weigh bag filler, the Fischbein Model DRC 300 double roll over bag sealer, the Fuji Robot Palletizer, and the Highlight Predator XS pallet stretch wrapper.
For the baking industry we recommend: the Chantland Model 4198 gross weigh auger feeder, the Fischbein Model PBC 8000 pinch bag sealer, the Fuji Robot Palletizer, and the Highlight Predator XS pallet stretch wrapper.
