Always keep the overview

Flour is not an easy product to handle, especially when a suitable sensor solution is required to monitor the automated filling process into paper bags in extremely dusty and explosive environments.


In a wheat and rye mill in Saarland, Germany, flour sacks, among other things, are filled automatically. The filling process must be absolutely reliable to ensure that no flour is discharged into the machinery and plant technology in the immediate vicinity. For this reason, a sensor solution shall monitor the process and ensure that the paper bag with a capacity of 50 kilograms is completely drawn over a filling spout.
