Q: Just what is form-fill-seal bagging? A: For dry bulk products, form-fill-seal bagging means that the bag is formed on the bagging equipment from a roll of bagging material, immediately filled with product, and then sealed shut, all without operator intervention or handling. The resulting bags are limited to a volume of about 1 2/3 cubic feet and a weight of 110 pounds; 50-pound bags are most common.
