Despite the best packaging processes.Dust and airborne particles can still pose a problem.How Packaging Machines Helps In Protecting From Dust?
When packaging products like coffee, protein powder.Cannabis products, and even pet foods, you may encounter dust in your packaging environment.
During the packaging process, dust emissions are most likely to occur when dry, powdered, or dusty products pass through transfer points and especially with Water Bottle Packing. Airborne particulates can occur any time the product is moving or suddenly stops/starts moving.
You can reduce the negative effects of dust in your automated packaging line by implementing the following eight features of modern powder packaging machines and Liquid Filling Machine:
Jaw drives with enclosed housings
Powder packaging machines must be protecte from airborne particulates if they operate in dusty environments or have dusty products.
A completely enclosed jaw drive is standard on packaging machines designed for dusty or wet environments. However, particulates can impede the operation of the jaw drive when enclosed.
Enclosures that are dustproof and IP rated properly
To maintain proper operation, machine enclosures that house electrical or pneumatic components must be adequately protect against dust entry. Therefore, you should ensure that packaging equipment for dusty environments has IP (Ingress Protection) ratings appropriate to the environment. IP Ratings refer to the degree to which an enclosure is dust- and water-tight.
Equipment for dust suction
You have to worry about more than just dust entering the machine. During the heat seal process, dust can cause the sealant layers in the film to not adhere properly and uniformly, leading to rework and scrap. At different points in the packaging process, dust suction equipment can be utilized to remove or recirculate dust, reducing the likelihood of particulates getting into packages.
Hoods for dust
Dust hoods can be installed above the dispensing station of automatic pouch filling and sealing machines. The filler drops the product into the bag, and this component collects and removes particulates.
