On April 6, 2021, Sywen Packaging received an inquiry from Brisbane, Australia about the fully automatic powder can filling machine with the following content:
We are a pet formula milk powder manufacturer, we need to fill 800 g canned pet milk powder. Which automatic powder filling machine can meet my filling requirements? Please quote the best CIF Brisbane price.
Our reply on April 7, 2021:
Please send us the pictures and dimensions of the sample cans so that we can make a more suitable packaging solution. What are the requirements for filling speed and accuracy?
The customer’s email on April 9, 2021:
The can is made of tinplate, with a diameter of 127 mm, a height of 165 mm, the filling speed is about 20 cans per minute, the filling accuracy is about 2 g.
Our reply on April 12, 2021:
According to your requirements for filling accuracy, we recommend you the fully automatic powder weighing and packaging machine. The automatic powder weighing filling machine has a single filling head and double filling heads, there is not much difference in filling accuracy between single and double filling heads, both can achieve the accuracy error within 2 g for filling 1000 g milk powder. But for the same specification and the same container, the filling speed of the double filling heads powder weighing filling machine is 1/3 faster than that of the single filling head.
Filling 800 g milk powder, the required filling speed must reach 20 cans/min, our double-head automatic powder weighing and filling machine can reach 18-25 cans/min. After comprehensive considerations, we recommend you the SF-KP automatic powder cans weighing packaging machine with double filling heads.
The can positioning device of this automatic powder filling machine is a round turntable. Compared with the linear structure, the round turntable is more time-saving than the linear type when the can enter the filling station, so the packaging speed is faster. During filling, each can is stuck in the positioning turntable to ensure the stability of the filling (which can prevent the jar from tipping over).
In addition to the automatic pet milk powder can filling machine, do you need other related packaging machines? such as vacuum can sealing machine, ultraviolet sterilizer and so on.
Our reply on April 19, 2021:
- Empty Cans Round Turntable
|Place the empty cans on the round turntable manually, and the cans will automatically enter the next packaging station.
- All-in-one machine for turning, degaussing, cleaning, and sterilizing empty cans
|In the process of making the cans, some impurities may remain in the cans. When the empty cans are turned over, the machine will blow the inside of the cans to ensure that there are no impurities in the cans. The machine is equipped with a demagnetizer, and the opening of the can is facing downwards. At this time, the can body is non-magnetic, ensuring that the metal impurities in the cans can also be cleaned.
- Channel Type UV Sterilizer
|Kill bacterial propagules, spores, mycobacteria, fungi, rickettsiae, and chlamydia in the can.
- SF-KP Double heads automatic powder can filling machine
|Measurement method: weighing and filling
Filling Speed: filling 1000g pet milk powder, 15-25 cans/min
Filling accuracy: ≤2‰
||Automatically conveying powder materials to the hopper of the filling machine
||After the filling is completed, the can is vacuumed in a vacuum chamber and filled with Nitrogen, then sealing cans finally.
(In order to match the speed of the filling machine, it needs to be equipped with three sets of automatic vacuum nitrogen-filled sealing machines)
Remarks: The above machine list is for reference only. According to specific packaging requirements, machines may increase or decrease.
The customer’s email on April 27, 2021:
How many microorganisms and bacteria can the UV sterilizer kill?
Our reply on April 27, 2021:
Our UV sterilizer does not support the display of sterilization quantity, ratio, and other information.
The customer’s email on April 29, 2021:
After the can is vacuum pumped, how much oxygen remains?
Our reply on April 27, 2021:
Our vacuum sealing machine can achieve about 3% remaining oxygen content after vacuuming.
The customer’s email on May 4, 2021:
Please make a detailed quotation, including all the machines in the list. How long will the lead time be?
Our reply on May 7, 2021:
Please see the CIF Brisbane price in the attachment. There are 5 machines in total, and the lead time is 45 days.
The customer’s email on May 9, 2021:
How to reduce the dust pollution of the discharge port of the powder packaging machine during filling?
Our reply on May 9, 2021:
A dust cover can be added to the discharge port, as shown in the following packaging video.
The customer’s email on May 11, 2021:
To test the packaging performance of the machine, is it necessary to send the sample cans?
Our reply on May 12, 2021:
Because the circular positioning device of the automatic powder filling machine is customized according to the diameter of the can, the sealing knife of the can sealing machine must be customized according to the lid of the metal can, so if you want to check the effect of filling and sealing, it is necessary to send the samples cans to us.
The customer’s email on May 21, 2021:
How is the machine placed?
Our reply on May 22, 2021:
You need to provide the detailed size and layout of the production workshop first, including how many floors of the production workshop, length, width, height, power supply, and air source need to be set in which position in the workshop, where the front-end mixing equipment is located, where the storage tank is in, where the empty tank is stored in, and other detailed information.
According to the layout drawing of your workshop, we will give you a detailed machine layout drawing.
The customer’s email on June 18, 2021:
We plan to send the sample cans to you. After receiving the sample cans, there is no milk powder, how would you test the packaging performance?
Our reply on June 19, 20121:
First of all, we will find a material that fluidity and density are similar to milk powder for testing, like milk powder, we will use wheat flour to test the filling performance.
Secondly, determine the specifications of the screw auger.
Our powder filling machine is often used to package milk powder, protein powder, and other materials. According to the packaging specifications, filling speed and our filling experience, we will select a set of augers as a test about the filling speed and accuracy. During the testing, more suitable auger specifications will be exchanged according to the actual packaging conditions.
Packaging some very common powders, generally, 2 sets of screws will be replaced at most to determine the most suitable screw auger diameter and size.

How to test the quality of sealing for cans?
Our reply on June 21, 2021:
After the can is sealed, we will test the tightness of the can, because only when the can is sealed well can get an ideal residual oxygen value. After receiving the sample can, we will set some standard technical parameters for the sealing knife based on past experience.
After sealing the can, we will put the can in the water to check the sealing effect by the number and size of bubbles, then adjust the relevant technical parameters of the sealing knife according to the sealing performance.
