On September 12, 2021, Sywen Packaging received an inquiry about a semi-automatic powder bottle filling machine from the State of New Jersey in the United States. The content is as follows:
We are a manufacturer of sports nutrition supplements. Our products include whey protein isolate powder, amino acid powder, collagen peptide powder, vitamin and mineral supplements, cereal meal replacement powder, etc. Now we are looking for a semi-automatic powder bottle packaging machine. Which one of your semi-automatic powder filling machines can meet my filling requirements?
Our reply on September 12, 2021:
Please send us the bottle sample picture, size, and packaging specifications, so that we can recommend a suitable powder filling machine for you.
The customer’s email on September 14, 2021:
The bottle is made of PE, the cap is a plastic threaded cap, the outer diameter of the bottle is 205mm, the height of the bottle is 150mm, and the filling specification is 600 grams/bottle.
Our reply on September 15, 2021:
What kind of nutritional powder do you want to fill? What is the required filling speed and accuracy?
The customer’s email on September 18, 2021:
Currently, we need to fill protein powder, but we may also fill other types of food powder in the future. The required packaging speed is about 10 bottles/minute, and the accuracy error is about 3 grams/bottle.
Our reply on September 18, 2021:
What are the standard packaging specifications for all nutritional powder product series?
The customer’s response on September 20, 2021:
All of our protein powders are packaged in bottles, and the standard packaging specifications are 600g, 1200g, 2200g…the maximum weight does not exceed 3500 grams.
Our reply on September 21, 2021:
The semi-automatic powder filling machine is suitable for packaging powders with small packaging output but has many packaging specifications. According to different requirements of filling accuracy, the semi-automatic powder packaging machine can be made into screw metering or weighing system metering.
For filling 600 g protein powder, the accuracy error of the screw auger metering semi-automatic powder packaging machine is about 6 g, and the filling accuracy of weighing type semi-automatic powder filling machine can reach about 2 g, so only the weighing type semi-automatic powder filling machine can meet your filling accuracy requirements.
For the semi-automatic powder weighing and filling machine, the screw auger is only an unloading device, not a metering device. Different auger diameters and the distance of each circle auger are used for different packaging specifications. If you want to pack 600-3500 g protein powder, you need to use 2 sets of unloading augers, 500-1000 g use one set of the auger, and 1000g-3500g use the same auger.
So do you want to use one machine to pack only 600 g bottled protein powder, or fill 600-3500 g protein powder? The number of augers is different for different packaging ranges.
The customer’s response on September 25, 2021:
We need a semi-automatic powder packaging machine that can pack 600-3500 g protein powder. Please quote the best CIF Newark price with sea freight.
Our reply on September 27, 2021:
According to your filling requirements, we recommend you SF-02 semi-automatic powder weighing packaging machine. This powder packaging machine is the most compatible model in all semi-automatic powder filling machines, it can fill premade pouches, stand up pouches, flat premade pouches, cans, bottles, jars, or tin cans. For filling 600g protein powder, and the filling speed can reach 12-18 bottles/min.
The free flow of protein powder is relatively good. When filling, some protein powder will leak out from the discharging port. Therefore, we recommend adding a leak-proof device in the unloading hopper of the powder filling machine.
In order to ensure the filling accuracy and speed, the automatic powder packaging machine should be working with an automatic powder screw conveyor.
Please see the detailed quotation in the attachment, including the SF-02 semi-automatic powder machine and ST-F automatic screw conveyor. The delivery time is one week.

How to clean the machine if the type of nutritional powder is changed?
Our reply on September 30, 2021:
The semi-automatic powder filling machine has a small body and a simple structure, it is very simple to clean up when changing packaging powder, you only need to disassemble the auger, clean the powder in the screw auger and hopper, and then wipe the auger and the inner wall of the hopper with alcohol for disinfection. The same method is used to clean the automatic screw conveyor, first disassemble, clean the powder, and then disinfect with alcohol. When disassembling the machine, please contact us, our technicians will provide real-time guidance online.
The customer’s email on October 3, 2021:
If changing the powder type, will affect the filling accuracy?
Our reply on October 3, 2021:
If the density and free-flowing of the powder are different, it is necessary to adjust the filling accuracy by setting some technical parameters simply. The relevant settings of the filling accuracy can be easily completed under the professional guidance of our technicians.
