Agricultural Products | Bulk Sized Packaging

dog food packaging

 

Increase your overall operating efficiency by establishing or improving the packaging of your seeds, fertilizers, or other agricultural products.  Whether you are filling rail cars, totes,  dog food packaging bags or drums, EPIC Systems’ packaging experience will help you fill them safely and efficiently.

Friability, high fill temperatures, or dust collection are examples of challenges that must be addressed by an experienced project engineer during the packaging line design phase.  EPIC can design, integrate and install bulk packing lines for both dry bulk and liquid bulk agricultural products.

Advantages to Bulk Agricultural Packaging Automation

Agricultural products can be sensitive to human interaction or even present a hazard to workers. Packaging large amounts of products can be time consuming and costly. Installing a well-designed automated bulk packaging line will ensure:

  • Reduce labor costs
  • Reduce product damage and loss
  • Improve safety
  • Increase product quality
  • Increase accuracy in filling
  • Reduce cross-contamination
  • Improve product freshness and cleanliness
  • Increase operational flexibility
  • Dramatically decrease packaging time

 Conveying

Conveying is a large part of packaging systems for most agricultural products. EPIC has extensive experience in conveyor system design. We can efficiently install automated conveyor systems both for packaging purposes and/or for Silo or bin filling purposes. Our conveyor systems will seamlessly integrate with your product treatment equipment. We carefully consider the friability of your product and whether or not a dust collection system is required before selecting the conveyor types to be used. The following conveyors are commonly used by EPIC in agricultural applications:

  • Conventional Conveyors
  • Belt conveyors
  • Bucket elevator conveyors
  • Drag conveyors
  • Drill & planter conveyors
  • Grain seed conveyors
  • Live bottom conveyors
  • Low profile transfer conveyors
  • Screw Conveyors
  • Slip-Stick conveyors
  • Top drive belt conveyors
  • Twin screw conveyors
  • Under bin conveyors
  • Vibratory conveyors
  • Pneumatic Conveyors
    • Dense phase conveyors
    • Dilute phase conveyors

 Containers

These products can be packed into the following containers using an EPIC designed packaging system:

  • Bulk Bags
  • Drums
  • FIBC bags
  • IBC’s
  • ISO containers
  • Rail cars
  • Silo bags
  • Soft totes
