Stott Hygienic Bulk Packaging Systems
Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems offers Stott hygienic bulk packaging systems for filling and weighing powders. Accurate weight-controlled filling systems from Hosokawa maintain the highest standards of hygiene, dust control, and product integrity. Stable and repeatable weight readings are provided to meet exact container weight specifications even in difficult conditions.
The video outlines the features of the system and offers a demonstration on its operation. The Stott Filling and Weighing System delivers stable and repeatable weight readings to +/- 0.10 g to meet exact product weight specifications. It is also suitable for hazardous areas. The Stott system includes a primary feeding device (rotary valve), a pitch valve which controls accuracy and fill weight, and a polyethylene (PE) bag which provides sealing capability. The unit’s main role is to protect the operator from dust during the filling cycle.
For increased containment levels up to OEB 5, filling systems can be integrated into laminar, Downflow Booth, or isolator systems. All Hosokawa filling systems incorporate internal filter and purge facilities. The internal filter reduces any product loss to the system and protects the larger HEPA filters.
In cases where containment of the powder is required, Stott filling and weighing systems can be incorporated within isolators, downflow booths, and laminar flow booths to protect operators from potentially hazardous dust exposure.
Typical applications include dryer pack-off, reactor discharging, mill/filter discharging, and re-packaging into larger/smaller packages. In addition, flexible systems allow for the use of drum, boxes, FIBCs, and IBCs.
To meet customer requirements, Hosokawa Micron is increasingly developing systems that offer the flexibility of filling a range of containers including charge bottles, drums without liners, or drums with single or continuous liners.
