Low cost seed bagging system

03 February 2010

Chronos BTH has several bagging systems installed with a provider of food and beverage ingredients. In summer 2009 this company had a requirement for a seed bagging system.

In less than six weeks after contract signing Chronos BTH was able to act promptly and supported this existing customer with the installation and commissioning of a simple bagging line, which meet all their operating criteria.

This bagging line that was supplied incorporated a Chrono-Weigh H17E electronic bagging weigher. Operating on a gross weighing principle the H17E is a fully automatic bagger with a pneumatically operated bag spout for manual bag placing and is controlled by the SpeedAC NXT high accuracy weighing controller. Downstream of the H17E is a transfer conveyor with stitcher, bag kicker and manual palletising conveyor.

Chronos BTH engineered the solution, then installed and commissioned the simple bagging system in time for the customer to meet their obligations and pack the first batch of product on time.

The Chrono-weigh H17E automatic bagging weigher has a full-loadcell design and is suitable for bagging a range of free-flowing materials into various types of open-mouth bag. Compatible for existing H17 mechanical weigher installations, the H17E can be retrofitted without major modifications to existing support steelwork.

Chronos BTH incorporates Richard Simon, Verville and Premier Tech Systems for European spares, refurbishments, service, installation and commissioning.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
