Open mouth bag fillers weigh, fill, and seal different types and sizes of bags and containers with dry bulk solids and products like powders, flakes, granules, and irregular shaped pieces. The filled bags and containers usually fall in the 20 - 110lb weight range. There are many different types of open mouth bag fillers including manual, semi-automatic, and automatic versions with filling speeds up to 24 bags per minute. Once the bags have been filled, they are usually moved through a bag sealer or sealer machine. Then, they are conveyed to a station where the bags are palletized, stacked, and wrapped for shipping, storage, and sale.

Bagging Coarse Solar Salt into Plastic Open Mouth Bags
The bag is clamped onto the outlet spout of the machine. When the start button is pressed, the coarse solar salt is conveyed into the bag at full flow. When the contents of the bag get close to the target fill weight, the auger and conveyor slow down the flow to a dribble. When the target weight has been reached, the bag clamp is released and the bag drops so it can be picked up for sealing.
