For Flow Packaging
Measure the volume of your biggest package in litres V – multiply this number by the fastest speed of the packaging machine in packages per minute S – multiply the result of this calculation by the purge factor 2.5
Mixer capacity = VxSx2.5 Litres/min.
For Vacuum Packaging
Make the same calculation and substitute the volume of the die for V and 1.5 for the purge factor. (There is less wasted gas in vacuum machine therefore the purge factor is lower )
