Agron invested in 2 blender lines and packing systems for big bags and 25-50 kg bags as well. The fertiliser blender line products are picked up by a forklift with loader and this is transported to the Weighcont Blender.
The Weighcont Blender line is a loss-in-weight-declining continuous blending process; the weight control in the blending machine secures the good quality.
The machine is being operated via a computer program which accurately controls the blend process. Via this computer dosing program and factory visualisation, the operator has full control on the whole process at his computer screen.
After blending the fertiliser, the blend is transported in a continuous flow with conveyor and elevator systems to the 2 packing machines: the big bag filing machine and the small bagging machine, for 25-50 kg bags.
The capacity of the Weighcont Blender is adapted to the packing capacity of 60 tons per hour for the big bags and 40 ton per hour for the small bags.
In this set up at Agron, the blender can blend 100 till 120 tons per hour. The big bag line is a High Speed type of machine; the weighing in this type of machine works as a nett weighing, in a stainless steel weighing scale with a content of 1300 kg, above the big bag. The client uses 1, 2 or 4 loop big bags. The small bagging machine operates with the same process of nett weighing, but filling of bags is done by means of 1 filling pipe and 2 weighing scales.
