Powders | Consumer Sized Packaging

Powder FIlling MachineBoxes, bags, pods, or jars are all examples of consumer sized powder packaging that EPIC designs custom filling and packaging lines for. Ventilation and worker safety are often concerns with powder packaging, especially if enzyme handling is involved. Shearing and clumping may be another concern you have; our background in chemical engineering combined with over fifteen years of packaging experience means we are well-equipped to recommend feasible solutions for your line.

We address these and other challenges during line design, and work with you to develop practical solutions that meet your budget and needs. EPIC designs lines that meet a variety of industry standards including GMP specifications, ISO 9000 and National Sanitation Foundation system requirements based on customer needs.
