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 weighment (30, 40, 50L). Once filled the bag is released from the clamp and drops onto a conveyor which 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 bagged into various size bags of various materials 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 affected materials such as compost.
The BP800 Bag placer can accommodate bags of various sizes, bag materials and closure device and can be a great alternative to the Form fill and Seal Machine. The Bag placing machine is new to the bag and sack filling range. Bag placers are used to place pre made bags onto a filling head. The bag placers we design and manufacture are built to handle different materials from a free flowing sugar to aggressive coals so they are ideal for packaging compost. Contact a member of the team to discuss how the automated bag placer can be integrated into your system increasing bag filling speeds of open mouth bags. The bag placer can offer a high-speed result for customers requiring automatic packing.
