Working Principles

Working Process of Liquid Packaging Machine

Liquid Packaging Principles

The liquid packaging machine mainly relies on the monitoring and control of the flow, pressure, temperature and other parameters of the liquid material itself, and then supplies the packaging materials to the packaging station through an automated centralized supply system to complete the filling and packaging of the liquid.

Feeding

Liquid filling can be divided into atmospheric filling, pressure filling and vacuum filling. Liquid packaging machine mainly adopts the way of normal pressure filling.

Mixing

The Liquid packaging machine introduces the liquid material to be packaged into the silo of the liquid flexible packaging machine by using a pumping device and mixes it.

Packaging

Packaging

Liquid packaging machine uses pneumatic ball valve to quantitatively flow out the liquid material, so that the liquid material comes to the cylindrical bag through the plastic film and bag making machine. In the end, the liquid is filled by its own gravity.

Sealing and Cutting

Sealing and Cutting

When the processed liquid material is automatically filled into the bag, the packaging bag passes through the heat sealing device according to the set procedure. The heat sealing device seals the liquid-filled packaging bag strongly by heating the sealing strip.

Following the working principles, finally the liquid packaging machine output individually packaged products.
