Here at NPS, we have a lot of experience with granular products specifically  sugar beans. We have leading brands in the market using NPS machines. NPS  has become the preferred supplier for bean and other pulses packing.

Types of Beans and Pulses

Sugar speckled beans are the most common pulse which are at times even called  are legumes. They are usually grown in South Africa. It is grown for its seed, which is consumed as a vegetable. The legume has high soluble fibre substances present within it. It has become part of a staple diet for many south african consumers.

 The more well-known pulses include the following bean types: Red speckled, brown haricot, large and small whites. Other major pulse crops include dry peas, lentils, chickpeas, carioca beans, alubia beans, pigeon peas, faba beans, dried split peas, mung beans, black eyed peas, lupines, bambara beans and cowpeas.

The most ideal material to pack Beans?

LDPE is the most popular

What sizes of bean can we package?

We can pack any size from 20g to 20kg bulk packs

 What types of packaging machines can we package beans with?

Semi-automatic with premade pouches.

Fully automatic 3-sided seal pillow pack.

Problem that occurs when packing Beans?

Beans are often prone to breakage, we have solved this issue by using a basculating cup filling system that prevents breaking and maintains the integrity of the pulses filling into the bags.

 I want to purchase a machine that packages beans and pulses

We suggest a fully automatic system that can quickly and efficiently pack grains and is a cost-effective system with a high production rate. A semi-automatic system can also be used which would suit a smaller budget but has a much lower production rate. Semi-automatic systems can also be intergrated into a fully automatic system at a later stage. When moving from semi-automatic to fully automatic you will save 20 to 25% on your material costs not to mention labor and production output.
