The BEHN + BATES Form-Fill-Seal technology for animal feed and pet food

In future an increasing number of pet food and animal feed producers will want to fill their products into plastic bags. The motive: Each producer is keen on keeping packing costs as low as possible. The Form-Fill-Seal bag meets this requirement to the largest possible extent. It is formed out of a gusseted tubular film, filled and sealed thus enabling the bag size to be optimally adjusted to the product. As a result film consumption is reduced.

In the beginning just granules could be reliably filled into Form-Fill-Seal bags. But technologies have developed during the last few years. Nowadays convincing Form-Fill-Seal packing solutions are available for animal feed and pet food, too. Our delivery programme includes several machine variants differing in output, type of product dosing and de-aeration:

    Rotating Form-Fill-Seal system with several filling spouts for powders & flours
  • FFS 600, 1000 or 2000
    for granules and grains like animal feed and pet food


is the BEHN + BATES Form-Fill-Seal system for filling powders & flours, e.g.:

  • Starch, dextrose & maltodextrin
  • Baking flours, baking mixes & premixes, etc.

Your customers have high demands on your products. Even when stored over long time periods the products have to keep their quality without deteriorating. This is only possible if your bags offer optimum product protection and storage properties. So the tight and compact Form-Fill-Seal bag gets interesting - even for animal feed and pet food.
