Australian Filling & Packaging Machines solve automatic filling problem with weigh hoppers

Supplier News

Australian Filling & Packaging Machines are providers of machinery to improve productivity when packing powders and granular products. They recently supplied a weigh hopper to a client for an application that required bags to be automatically filled to a preset weight with a moist clumping product.

The product the client was dealing with was moist and clumped and could therefore not go through normal filling methods. Australian Filling & Packaging Machines provided a weigh hopper as a solution, which, once fitted, allowed for an accurate fill while the operator performed other tasks.

Once the preset weight was reached, the machine stopped, the operator released the hopper content into the bag, and the machine automatically re-started the filling and weighing operation.

Weigh hoppers from Australian Filling & Packaging Machines are able to fill bags up to 5kg and have several included special features, such as:

  • easy removal and cleaning
  • stainless steel frame and contact parts
  • operator reset of scale settings
  • pneumatic operation of due to product moisture
  • automatic control of external feed system.
Suitable for use with powders, granules, or moist products, these weigh hoppers are ideal for applications where the filling machine is able to finish filling before the transfer of the product to the container, or filling systems where the machine can fill while other processes take place and then empty the product.
