Fertilizer Bags, Things to Keep in Mind
There are many options in both material and size when it comes to organic packaging fertilizer bags. All provide the same functionality, however there are some perks depending on the material.
If you are looking for an affordable, strong, and tear resistant bag, Polyethylene or PE is your best option. With Polypropylene Woven Bags or PP bags in a close second. Those materials, while each have their own advantages and disadvantages, provide you with the most secure and flexibility when packaging fertilizer. They are also the most cost-efficient option while providing the most strength.
Along with PP and PE bags, there are Kraft paper and Flexible Packaging. Both provide similar functions as PE and PP bags. However they typically are more expensive and, with Flexible Packaging, have limitations on the capacity. Flexible Packaging are designed for more multi-use products; ie. insecticide, herbicide, and other products. Compared to traditional fertilizer which is a single use product.
Fertilizer Packaging Machines
There are only a few ways to securely close your fertilizer bag. Sewing, fold, or double fold. As with the bag material, there are advantages and dis-advantages to each type.
Bag sealing provides you with a strength and security you may not get with sewing. With sealing, you are providing a tight bond across the entire run of the mouth of the bag. Sewing, you are creating holes or gaps that may not close. When dealing with fertilizer, you may have small particles or components that can slip through those holes.
Sealing, with Hot Air, is quick and efficient. Your operator can make one pass on the machine and know it is sealed. When you are dealing with chemicals and dangerous materials, you want to ensure nothing is getting in or getting out until the customer is using the fertilizer. Miller Weldmaster’s Packaging systems manufactures the top-of-the-line fertilizer packaging machine.
Using the pinch, or double fold method, Miller Weldmaster’s PS150 and PS300 provide the most secure seal. By pushing hot air through a specially designed nozzle, the bag passes through rollers that provide pressure to seal evenly across the bag’s opening.
