Spiroflow’s Cone Table Elite (CTE) is bulk bag filler of choice for the confectionery industry

Spiroflow’s industry-leading Cone Table Elite (CTE), a patented high speed bulk bag filler solution that delivers an industry leading densification of 10-20% more product fill per bag, is providing leading brands in the confectionery industry with an excellent return on investment.

Aimed at both confectionery manufacturers and ingredient producers alike, the unique technology injects vibration energy directly into the bag, densifying and dispersing material in the bag, increasing weight per filled bag, increasing bag stability and bulk bag filling throughput.

Given the huge volumes of ingredients used in confectionery manufacture, a reduction in shipping costs will provide the biggest cost benefit. A standard container can normally hold 22 bulk bags and is often shipped below the maximum allowable weight, when shipping low bulk density products or materials that are poorly densified. By using Spiroflow’s CTE bulk bag filler, more weight can be shipped on each container resulting in as much as a 20% reduction in shipping costs, the equivalent of 4 bulk bags per container saved.

Savings can be made from having the ability to fill more material in each bag, reducing total bag usage or from being able to use shorter, lower cost bags. Typically, a 10% reduction in side-seam height can result in approximately 5% lower bag cost.

Further cost reductions can be accrued in storage costs and floor space, due to needing fewer bags to hold the same amount of material. Being able to safely stack bags due to their more consistent, square, stable shape, with firmer flatter tops, also provides an additional benefit.
