Packaging systems

Like processing, the packaging industry is immense. We specialize in bulk dry solids packaging systems but are experienced with all types of products and technologies.
Below are listed Taylor Products’ bulk filling solutions, which are interfaceable within and without their line. Feel free to get in touch or browse Taylor Products’ models by product-type if you have any questions.

VALVE BAG FILLING

Valve bag fillers meter product from bulk bins into valve bags while minimizing spillage. There are multiple solutions for manual and automated bag placement and removal. Pneumatic air packers use pressurized air, augers use screw-like shafts in tubes, and impellers, which are used for dense and fine mesh materials, sling product through the fill spout.

BAG PLACEMENT & SEALING

The TRV 100 can position valve bags on multiple machines, be mounted in multiple positions, and be customized to a wide range of applications. The TRU Seal ultrasonic valve bag sealer converts high frequency mechanical sound waves on a thermoplastic material into frictional heat creating a positive seal on applicable valve bags.

FREE-FLOWING PRODUCT FILLING

The GW Series Auger Packer is a general solution for filling valve bags with granular products or coarse powders. A mechanical beam scale is incorporated into the filler and shuts the flow of product off when the weight is reached.

FINE POWDER & BLEND FILLING

Taylor Products’ Model A air packer is made for packaging fluidizable powders into valve bags. The self-contained pressure blower package and digital scale control make this the ideal machine for applications requiring a balance of speed and accuracy.

FLUFFY, CAKING, & BRIDGING PRODUCT

The Taylor Model APV is designed to package products that are aerated, bind, cake, or bridge easily into valve bags. The standard agitator keeps material moving to the feed auger. The variable speed auger option utilizes Taylor’s “bulk and dribble” technology to ensure a fast and accurate weight measurement.

COARSE POWDERS AND BLENDS

Taylor’s Model C air packer is designed for packaging coarse powders and granular material into valve bags. These pneumatic packers utilize a self-contained blower and Taylor’s patented reverse flow hopper design to provide accurate weighments at high speeds.

DENSE POWDERS

The Taylor Model IPV is designed for packaging heavy, dense, difficult-to-feed powders, and fine granular mixtures in valve bags. Material leakage is minimized by the split felt shaft seals on the impeller shaft. Product is fed to the impeller by integrated dual feed screws.

OPEN-MOUTH BAGGING

Typically paper, poly-woven mesh, plastic, or burlap open-mouth bags are filled by placing the open ends over a spout with controlled space for air displacement.

They’re sealed with thread, heat, or pinch seals, and are portioned in two main ways. In gross weighing applications the bag itself is placed on a scale, and when it reaches the appropriate weight the filler stops. In net weighing applications, the product is weighed prior to deposit into the bag.

There are various methods for the filling of the bags. Gravity feeders simply allow the product to fall in the bag and be cutoff during transition via gates, vibratory feeders assist the flow of difficult product along slight slopes, belt feeders help clump-prone products to be fed consistently, and auger packers allow precise feeding of fine and particularly difficult products such as starches and fluidized powders.

FREE-FLOWING PRODUCTS

FULLY-MECHANICAL SYSTEM

The OM series is an entry-level solution with adjustable speeds and settings for low and high-density products. It does not require electricity or compressed air, although its OM2A counterpart comes with a pneumatic cutoff gate and bag clamps for reduced laborer strain.

ELECTRONIC SYSTEM

The TE 100 is interfaceable with many other scale brands and automatically corrects when final packages are too heavy or light.

NET WEIGHING SYSTEM

The GN series continuously fills up to 14 bags per minute with operators manually signalling discharge from the bucket. Duplex units fill up to 22 bags per minute and can be interfaced with automatic bag hangers.

FLOW-RESISTANT PRODUCTS

STICKY & IRREGULAR PRODUCTS

The VG series is a vibratory solution which operates at different speeds for particularly difficult materials. It can fill up to 8 bags per minute can has the option to include a belt feeder.

FLUFFY, CAKING, & BRIDING PRODUCT

Taylor’s auger solutions come in single and dual-auger models which can fill up to 4 and 6 bags per minute, respectively. Both include product agitators, clean-out doors, and inflatable spouts to ensure positive seals.

DENSE & ABRASIVE POWDERS

The IPO model is an impeller feeder with felt, split-shaft seals and a feed-screw drive shaft to prevent leakage. They can fill up to 8 bags per minute.

SMALL QUANTITIES

The TE10 series is an electronic vibratory solution for weighments of 2 oz. to 12 lb. It features a solid-mount, net-weigh bucket to ensure accuracy.

LARGE QUANTITIES

The VN series can fill up to 10 or 16 bags per minute, depending on the model, and is suitable for fragile materials.

HIGH-OUTPUT SYSTEMS

AUTOMATIC PLACEMENT

Taylor’s TOMP model can prepare bags for filling at a rate of 12 per minute. It features a magazine that is reloadable during operation and a small footprint.

HIGH SPEED, AUTOMATIC PLACEMENT

The THP5500 model places up to 24 bags per minute, has an easily-accessed magazine, and is interfaceable with most fillers.

HIGH SPEED FILLING

The RT7000 model is a net-weigh, gravity-fed solution with a vibratory feature to assist the flow of difficult product. It features automatic calibration and flow gate adjustments and can fill up to 22 bags per minute, depending on the model.

 

NON-BULK PACKAGING SYSTEMS

We integrate packaging systems for many industries like food, pharmaceuticals, and other consumer goods. For non-bulk applications we tend to recommend Alpha and All-Fill because their products are often the best quality for the price. But in a vast industry like processing, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Whatever the application, we encourage you to get in touch with one of our packaging experts.
