Free-flowing powders

These are products formed by dry granules which may contain (or not) certain percentage of fine powders. Due to its physical nature, these are products that flow easily by simple gravity effect, and do not tend to compact or form vaults while handling them.

Some typical examples:

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Fertilizers in beans
  • Pharmaceutical granules
  • Powders detergents
  • Soluble coffee
  • Sweeteners

Such products are typically dosed using volumetric systems.

IMAR has developed several technical solutions based on this concept. The optimum one is applied for each project depending on the granulometry of the product, the presence of dust, and some other physical characteristics.

The most common volumetric systems that we integrate into our machines for packaging this kind of products are: Swinging/Oscillating cups, rotary feeders, or rectilinear motion cups.
