Consolidation in the sector ELOCOM bagging salt.

Bagging salt is a particularly technical field so specific to your problem:

High level of corrosion. Besides the use of different types of stainless steel (304 and 316 L), materials such as copper or aluminum are avoided.

High hygroscopicity. It generates a large number of electrical breakdowns in addition to problems in the sensors for proper automation.

Physical behavior problems especially in salt with high relative humidity.

For 20 years, ELOCOM has made nearly 50 automatic bagging lines for salt in 4 continents. The requirements in each country (type of bag, type of salt, environment, marketing, etc…) have been very different, which have allowed the company to accumulate knowledge on how to solve problems.
