Animal feed, pet food & seed: High quality packaging of agricultural products
Due to many different compositions filling systems of animal feed and pet food may have most diverse properties challenging the packing industry. For example: Starch and oil containing products often have bad flow characteristics, whereas well flowing grains or granules can be handled easily.
Never mind! We can offer you the right filling system for your product:
While our pneumatic packer is the best solution for filling starch- and oil-containing animal feed or pet food into valve bags, our gravity packer has ever proven its worth for granules and grains.
Our TOPLINE® fills pre-fabricated open-mouth bags. Our FFS systems form, fill and seal bags from an endless gusseted film. In both cases the filling spout and the product dosing unit are selected in such a way to assure best filling results - and this not only for the easy-to-handle granules but also for the more complicated powders and flours.

Valve bag filling system
A lot of food and animal feed producers choose the valve bag due to its easy handling and its compact bag shape with high advertising impact.
Gravity packer for grains & granules
The product is filled according to the gravity principle either by a curved or by a straight gravity tube - without additional conveying air or mechanical assistance.
Open-mouth bag filling technology
Optimum product protection and improved storage, high advertising impact, flexible filling volumes or simple opening and re-closing of the used bags - all these are convincing features of the open-mouth bag.
Fully automated filling technology
The BEHN + BATES-TOPLINE® 600 and 1200 are used for filling granules & grains into pre-fabricated open-mouth bags.
Food and animal feed products will be packed into plastic bags more frequently in future as each packing company is keen on keeping its packing cost as low as possible. The FFS bag meets this requirement to a special extent.
Big bag filling technology
In the logistics chain big bags are a cost-effective alternative to conventional bags. Of course, they must also allow quick and clean processing - goals that can be easily reached with our big bag filling station GWH.
