How to Improve Bagging Automation Throughput

Water content in the compressed air supply can negatively impact the function of your bagging equipment, machine rate, repetition, and accuracy

When using bagging equipment with pneumatic components and operations, it's important to supply compressed air that is clean (free of contaminants), dry and non-lubricated.

All atmospheric air contains some water vapor and contaminants. As the air compresses, the vapor liquefies. This causes the water, which is non-compressible, and contaminants for a given volume of air, to increase.

Water content in the air supply can negatively impact the function of your bagging equipment, machine rate, repetition, and accuracy.

Excessive water content can cause rust, corrosion, and clogging of air lines and other pneumatic components, and lead to damage of heaters, solenoids, manifolds and cylinders.

Compressed air systems using a refrigerated air dryer set-up are strongly recommended for air supplies as they reduce water vapor concentration and prevent further water formation in air lines.

Liquid water removal increases the efficiency of air operated equipment and extends the service life of pneumatic components.

Operating and maintenance costs can be significantly reduced by removal of most contaminants such as dirt, rust, oil, water and water vapor.

To protect your eequipment, maximize production, and minimize downtime, supplying clean, dry, regulated compressed air is essential.
