Beumer Group has introduced the Beumer sealpac, a form fill seal system (FFS system) for chemical products. The needs of customers in the chemical industry may vary greatly; bulk density, flow characteristics and grain distribution of chemical products require flexibility in bagging and packaging until they reach the final customer.
High throughput, availability and a compact design are key features of the new FFS system. Reproducible weight accuracy of the bags is ensured. Furthermore, operators can handle the energy-efficient system ergonomically.
Chemical and petrochemical products are partly characterized by high product temperatures, may be dimensionally unstable and have special flow characteristics. If these materials are filled into bags, their handling can be extremely difficult. The BEUMER sealpac forms a bag from a prefabricated tubular PE film and fills it with technical plastic materials like PE, PP, PA or PS. Salts, building materials, fertilizers, or food products can also be filled into bags.
This system is equipped with a weighing unit which, on the one hand, ensures that the quantity of material filled is not too high as this would result in high costs for the manufacturer. On the other hand, the bags must not contain too little material since the specified quantity has to correspond to the actual contents. Thus operators always obtain exact filling weights with the new FFS system. Then the system seals the bags with a weight of up to 25 kg. This way users can handle up to 2,600 bags per hour.
