Large flour bag packaging

The common bagged flour includes 1kg, 2kg, 5kg, 10kg, 20kg, 25kg, 50kg, etc. If more than 5kg per bag, it usually adopts woven bag packaging by flour filling and sealing equipment. It adopts a quantitative weighing system, precisely and accurately. For woven bags, the flour filling machine usually matches a sewing machine to seal the mouth of packaging bags. There is a conveyor belt on the bottom of the equipment to help the operator transport bag to seal.

For 1-3kg flour in plastic pouches, the fully automatic lapel powder packing machine is suitable. An automatic packaging machine works efficiently, producing high output, saving time and labor.

In addition, vacuum packaging styles are available. Vacuum sealer with double vacuum room works more efficiently than single-chamber type. Each chamber has two sealing strips. Besides, we also provide a vacuum packaging machine that can match brick mold to get the flour in the vacuum bag as the brick shape. The mold has 500g, 1kg, 2.5kg, 5kg, and so on.

What should notice when using an automatic flour packaging machine?

Flour as one kind of powder is not easy to load material manually, so it’s better to work with a screw conveyor or vacuum feeder together. And the feeding machine can prevent the flour from floating in the air effectively, keeping the working place clean.
