Auger Fillers are the machines of choice for all dry products that have consistency of granule size and powders. In some cases auger filling equipment can be used as a depositor for moist products such as cooked rice and pastes. The biggest advantage of auger filling machinery is that the systems are relatively closed making auger fillers the ideal choice for very fine powders such as talcs, flour, and baking soda which tend to get airborne with other systems. Auger fillers are also capable of relatively high fill rates compared with net weight fillers and take up less floor space.
