The Model 5500 Air Valve Bag Packer uses compressed air to fluidize and convey granular, pellet, dry, and fine powder products into Valve-Style bags.

The 5500 is commonly used for materials like cement, mortar, sand, resins, plastic pellets, bread crumbs, corn meal, cracker meal, milk powder, and many other products packaged in valve bags!
