Filling system for food and foodstuff
Do you fill food and foodstuffs into bags? If so, BEHN + BATES is your right partner. We have specialized in your products. We deliver food-optimized filling systems for valve bags, pre-fabricated open-mouth bags, FFS bags and big bags.
Food products are natural products. They are influenced by climatic conditions. Production and storage vary depending on the region and continent where they are processed. All these are aspects having an influence on the selection of the filling system. If it is best adapted to your needs, it provides you with considerable and lasting advantages.
We know about the specialities of food and foodstuff packaging. It does not matter whether you fill
- cocoa powder
- starch & derivatives
- sugar, dextrose, maltodextrin & sorbitol
- flours, baking mixes & premixes
- rice & corn
- animal feed, pet food & seed
we have the right filling solution for each type of bag and for manual or fully automatic operations.
Tread new paths - with us - because you profit from our experience.
Rice & corn: Easy handling, high output, excellent weights
Granules & grains - e.g. crystal sugar, rice, corn and seeds - are easy to handle. They have excellent flowing characteristics and do not raise dust. High packing capacities are possible, filled weights are excellent.
For decades our gravity packer has proven its worth as a filling system for granules and grains into valve bags. Equipped with a special open-mouth bag filling spout it is even suitable for filling pre-fabricated open-mouth bags with food and foodstuffs.
Open-mouth bag filling to perfection is reached by our fully automatic systems:
Sugar, dextrose, maltodextrin & sorbitol: Clean packaging of sweet products
Sugar and sugar derivatives have a wide range of different grain sizes, from very fine to very coarse grains. All of them have to be handled properly in order not to destroy the corn structure. Therefore, only an adequately designed filling system guarantees that the product is filled gently and fast at the required speed.
Our pneumatic packer has proven its worth as an all-round filling system for filling sugar and sugar derivatives into valve bags. Our TOPLINE® system presents the most reliable automatic solution for pre-fabricated open-mouth bags.
In future the FFS technology will be the trend-setter: It forms the bag from a gusseted tubular film, fills and seals it. Thus, the bag size is automatically adjusted to your product - and the consumption of PE film is reduced.
You decide whether your bags are filled manually or automatically, at low or high outputs per hour. Our modular system provides the right solutions for each application - from filling up to palletizing.

Valve bag filling technology
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.
