Why choose the auger filler rather than the multihead weigher?
Sep 29, 2018

                          Why choose the auger filler rather than the multihead weigher?

Both technologies have their advantages, suitable for different material. Below we will introduce the auger filler's advantage.

An auger filling machine is most often used for powder packaging applications including flour, spices, ground coffee, baking soda, chemicals, sugar, granulated salt, sweeteners and any other products that are dusty in nature.

The reason an auger filler is advantageous in these types of applications is because the unit is completely enclosed, these particles cannot escape and create dust clouds. If these dusty products where to be run on a traditional vibratory weigh filler it would be very difficult to contain the dust, thus resulting in a messy packaging environment.

Products like cake mixes, brown sugar and flour are what we consider non-free flow products and have a tendency to clump. An auger fillers agitator and screw design help break up the product and transfer it to the filling zone, often times outperforming a traditional net weighers accuracy ability. If you were to run these products on a linear net weigher for example you would tend to see weight inaccuracies with peaks and valleys due to the nature of how these products clump.

In regards to cost vs. production rates, an Auger filling machine like our Star Auger offers a fantastic return on investment. Auger fillers are relatively inexpensive and can produce high speeds. What they may give up in accuracy in certain cases vs. a weigh filler (due to the fact that Auger fillers do not weigh, they volume fill), they more than likely to make up for it in cost and production rates.

If you have any questions in determining if your product is best suited for an auger filling machine, please do not hesitate to call us for more info.
