We achieve the best bulk packaging results with Taylor Products and the best non-bulk packaging results with All-Fill. Both are quality manufacturers with products we can easily customize and integrate into your process. Below is an overview of different classes all of which are available at various levels of automation.
Valve Bag Fillers
Valve bag fillers meter product from bulk bins into valve bags. 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.
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.
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.
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.
Gravity feeders 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.
Auger packers allow precise feeding of fine and difficult products such as starches and fluidized powders.
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.
The TE 100 is interfaceable with many other scale brands and automatically corrects when final packages are too heavy or light via feedback from checkweighers or x-ray machines.
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.
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.
The VN series can fill up to 10 or 16 bags per minute, depending on the model, and is suitable for fragile materials.
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.
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 All-Fill because their products are often the best quality for the price. Our non-bulk solutions include those for liquids, slurries, gels, and other product types. Whatever the application, we encourage you to get in touch with one of our packaging experts.
