Auger Filler Packaging Machine for Powder
Thanks to the development of auger powder filling machines, manufacturers of powdered products can now automate their filling processes and use various container types like sachet, pillow bags, and stick packs. Auger filler is used to fill and package food items like spices, baking powder, cacao, and other items in powdered form. There are several benefits of using an Auger Powder Filler packaging machines, which includes:
- When operating, it has minimal friction and is incredibly stable
- Has smooth movement and operates at a fast speed
- Features a touch screen which is used to operate its programmable logical controller
- Offers English and other languages so the operator can conveniently maneuver the touch screen
- Made with stainless steel
Powders are fine particles that are results of grinding, crushing, disintegrating solid substances. In industrial settings, it’s possible to fill powder products as raw materials, an intermediate item from a process, and the finished result of a process. Thus, during the filling process, it’s essential to consider those three major aspects when choosing a packaging container. Also, you must understand the characteristics of the powder before selecting a powder filling machine. Powders can be fine, very fine, coarse, moderately coarse, or very coarse.
They also have unique and distinct physical properties, wherein some are free-flowing and others are non-free-flowing or semi-free flowing. For non-free-flowing powders, they typically need a large auger to quickly push all the trapped powder towards the funnel. Meanwhile, an auger with parallel flights is ideal for semi-free flowing powders. Lastly, free-flowing powders require a way to stop the powder flow, which can be achieved using a spinner disc.
