Controlling filling speed and accuracy with an auger filler

An auger filler has long been characterized as the workhorse of low- to medium-speed filling for dry bulk materials. To understand how it can work for your container-filling application, take a look at the auger filler basics described in this article. Then read on to learn how you can integrate the auger filler into a process and achieve fast, accurate filling by understanding fill factors. Additional sections cover auger filler drives, selection factors to consider, and working with the auger filler manufacturer. Related information explains how to select auger filler accessories.

It can handle powdered materials as fine as photocopier toner and granular materials as coarse as popcorn kernels.
