Modern and reliable bagging and palletizing lines

12 November 20213 min reading

Bagging baggingand palletizing of grain and flour require precision and flexibility together with a high level of hygiene. The bagging machinery developed by PAYPER complies with the strict regulations in this industry.

The quality of the product has to be maintained at a high level during the whole process to guarantee that the user receives a product in condition. Therefore, the packaging equipment must be designed to prevent contamination and it should allow for easy cleaning and inspection.

PAYPER has developed a wide range of dosing, weighing and packaging equipment for all sizes and types of bags including bulk bags. Valve bags have many applications. Powdery products, such as flour and blends of powders, such as pre-mixes can easily be packed in valve bags by means of PAYPER’s unique fluidization technology. Available with ultrasonic sealing system to protect the product inside the bag and to avoid leakages.

Open mouth bagging: Wide range of complete, modern and precise automatic bagging solutions that adapts to each manufacturer’s special conditions, like bag types and sizes and speed requirements. Available with a probe with a double function: It empties the bag of air and it can fill it with an inert gas.

PAYPER supplies complete packing line solutions, integrating palletizing and over-packing and each component is perfectly adapted to handle human food safely and responsibly. This is the testimonial from one of our clients:

"The new bagging line produces more than we expected."

Hedwigsburger Okermühle GmbH in Germany is one of the oldest mills still in operation. It dates from 1318 and has had uninterrupted activity since 1820. Okermühle contacted PAYPER through their German partner, SSB Wägetechnik GmbH, for a new valve bagging machine for wheat flour.

Together we designed their new line, which is a fully automatic installation consisting of an automatic bag presenter and a fluidization bagging machine. The flour is introduced by gravity into a chamber in which a stream of air from the bottom fluidizes the flour. Another flow of air from the top of the chamber conveys the product into the bag.

The fluidization system is the ideal technique for food products as it is very easy to clean, control and maintain. It facilitates a perfect cleaning of the whole bagging equipment in between different productions.

Once the bag is full, the valve is thermo-sealed by two ultrasonic bars. The result is a perfectly airtight bag with good protection against any external contamination. Thermo-sealing further minimizes dust emission. Okermühle’s new bagging line fills and seals 180 bags per hour with one single filling nozzle. The project is designed to allow for a future expansion that will triple the production.

 “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the PAYPER/SSB team for a great job. The system works better than expected (233 bags/h unwelded). Our employees working with the bagging line look very happy and your commissioning engineers did a great job of training. It was a good decision to work with you” says Birko Boeltzig, Okermühle's Sales and Project Manager.
