A bagging scale primer: Types, components, and selection requirements

Bagging scales accurately fill bags with dry bulk materials by weight, not volume. This article provides information to help you select a bagging scale for your application; sections describe bagging scale types, components, and selection factors.

Filling each bag with the same quantity of material is the primary requirement of any bagging operation. A device called a bagging scale -- which is used to bag free-flowing or semifree-flowing dry materials such as chemicals, fertilizers, feed, grains, salt, and sand -- accurately fills bags by weight. While bagging scales can fill both valve and open-mouth bags, this article discusses bagging scales that fill open-mouth bags.
