Product Feed:

Agitated through pneumatic gate
The fully automatic filling cycle begins with the bags valve being totally sealed off and the weight of the bag also tared off.  The next stage fills the bag, which is on a load cell, at a fast rate of feed through a pneumatically operated slide gate via an auger.  When the weight reaches a preset amount (normally about 95% of the required total) the slide gate closes off to a present slow rate of feed until the required weight is achieved, at which point it closes off completely.  When the auger has transformed all the product it stops and the valve seal is released automatically, ready for the bag to be removed.
