Bagging Salt into 40 Lb. Poly Bags

Process Description

Salt flows freely by gravity from the 200 cubic foot supply hopper bin into the top of the net weigh bagging machine.  When a fill cycle is started, salt is automatically metered and pre-weighed into an internal weigh hopper within the bagging machine.

When an operator or automatic bag placing machine provides a signal to the machine, the pre-weighed amount of salt discharges into the poly bag.  Once full, the bag clamp releases the bag onto a bag closing conveyor, where the operator guides it through a band heat sealer.

After sealing, the bag is conveyed to a manual palletizing station.  Another operator then picks up the bag and places it on pallet that has a pre-applied cardboard box to contain any salt that might spill from the bags.

Once a pallet is full, an operator with a forklift or floor jack takes it to a pallet wrapper machine.
