A critical part of any powder packing plant is the QA/QC procedure. GEA offers standardized solutions to process filled bags through a powder packing line whilst performing important quality control operations.
GEA packing lines are configured to meet the specific requirements of the customer. Once the bag is filled and closed, it is passed to the bag handling equipment for processing and quality checks before being palletized.
Powdered food and dairy products, for example, must be checked for conformance with production parameters — such as weight accuracy or contamination — before they reach the finished product store.
Containers that do not conform to weights and measures regulations are rejected. An operator can then take remedial action. This is usually limited to discarding or reprocessing of product.
