For customers looking to pack compost manually with pre-made bags, we re-designed our in-feed system on our standard hoppers to promote product flow and minimise bridging. The manual system comprises of a hopper with belt feeding out onto an in-feeding conveyor into a loadcell bag clamp. The bag is manually placed on the clamp, filled to desired weightment (30, 40, 50L). Once filled the bag is released from the clamp and drops onto a conveyor with transfers the bag through a heat sealer and through to the bag flattener. The system can be can be found in our MB-500 manual bagging series. Compost can be processed into various sizes and RMGroup have supplied a wide range of bag filling and weighing systems to compost suppliers. Customers looking for high-speed automated systems to pack compost, we recommend form fill and seal. This system has the capacity to bag up to 1,000 bags an hour of compost. We use a doser weighing system to fill bags volumetrically. Please refer to our form, fill and seal product pages to see the vertical FFS systems in operation.From basic Manual systems through to fully automated vertical form, fill and seal bag filling systems with robot palletising. The BB150C was designed especially to ease the problem of moisture effected materials such as compost.
