Product is supplied to the bag weighing / filling system from a product supply hopper / bin located above the bag filling machine. The product is pre-weighed in a 1.0 cubic foot weigh hopper prior to dispensing into the bag.
Product is added to the weigh hopper though one of two methods: bulk or dribble flow. During the bulk fill sequence, the gravity gate and vibratory pan feeder adds product into the weigh hopper. Once the bulk fill portion has been satisfied, the gravity flow gate closes and the vibratory pan feeder completes the remaining product addition until the target weight is reached.
