Semi automatic packing – Easy Fill Augers

Volumetric Filling

In volumetric filling mode, the auger will rotate a consistent amount each time a discharge takes place and providing that the product being dispensed has a stable bulk density, i.e. a measured volume of product always weighs the same, then accuracy will also remain consistent from discharge to discharge.

Gravimetric Filling

Weigh filling machines operate by dynamically weighing the product as it enters the bag / container during actual discharge. These machines are suitable for discharge weights ranging from a few grams up to as much as 50Kg and are used for the following reasons;

  1. Product has inconsistent density and therefore is not suitable for volumetric filling.
  2. Requirement for filling machine to provide printed reports / statistics on fill performance.
  3. Expensive product where product giveaway must be minimized.
