Line Type Filling and Rotary Type Filling

The primary distinctions between a Line Auger Filler and a Rotational Auger Filler are found in their operational mechanisms and configurations:

Mechanism of Operation:

Line Type Auger Filler:

The auger of a line-type filling moves in a straight line to dispense and to fill the product. The auger normally moves back and forth horizontally or vertically and transporting the product from the hopper to the container.


Rotary Type Auger Filler:

The auger(s) of a rotary-type of auger filler rotates within a cylindrical tube to transport and dispense the product. The rotation of the auger(s) pulls the product forward, and directly filling the container.


Line Type Auger Filler:

The line type auger filler normally has a straight-line configuration, with the auger moving along a linear route to dispense the product. The linear action enables accurate and controlled in filling.



Rotary Type Auger Filler:

The rotary type of auger filler has a circular configuration, with the auger spinning within a cylindrical tube. The circular action allows for consistent and continuous   product distribution.

Speed and Capacity of Filling:

Line Type Auger Filler:

When compared to rotary-type auger fillers; line-type auger fillers have higher filling speeds. They can handle more containers per minute, making them ideal for high-speed production lines.



Rotary Type Auger Filler:

When compared to line-type fillers; rotary-type auger fillers typically have a slightly slower filling pace. However, they are appropriate for a wide range of applications and can handle a variety of product consistencies, including fine powders and granules.



Precision and accuracy:

Line Type Auger Filler:

Line type auger fillers have high filling accuracy and precision. The linear movement enables precise product dispensing, resulting in consistent fill weights or volumes.




Rotary Type Auger Filler:

Rotary type auger fillers are also accurate and precise, although their fill weights or volumes may vary significantly more than line type fillers. They are nevertheless capable of achieving the accuracy requirements of the majority of applications.

Line Type Auger Filler:

Line type auger fillers are appropriate for a variety of container shapes and sizes, including bottles, jars, and others. They are adaptable in terms of accommodating various package formats.

Rotary Auger Fillers:

Rotary auger fillers are frequently utilized for specialized container shapes and sizes, such as round bottles or jars. To handle different container types, they may require additional adaptations or equipment changes.



Both “line-type” and “rotary-type auger fillers” have an advantage and are chosen based on the packing application’s specific requirements. Line fillers excels on high-speed operations and provide exceptional accuracy, while Rotary fillers are adaptable and ideal for a wide range of product consistencies.
