Cupping, bagging starts up at NP Food Service Sales

The organic cereal processor launches into the market in cups and in bags using two new lines.

NP Food Service Sales, LLC, St. Charles, IL operates two start-up packaging lines, one for cups, the other for a range of bags. The cup-filling line features automatic ingredient dispensing and conveying to a computerized
netweigher that supplies the cereal to the 4-up cup filler and sealer at speeds to 160 cups/min.

The bag filling line features a pair of vertical f/f/s units. These are supplied ingredients from a computerized netweigher on a mezzanine above the baggers. Twin-head scales dispense and control product to the netweigher.

Rates top out around 100 bags/min.
