The Pouch Conveyor is a motorized incline conveyor that automates the process of collecting and dispensing Hydropac™ Pouches during production. Securely attached to the AWS-5000 Pouch Machine producing 1,800 pouches an hour (30 per minute), the Pouch Conveyor operates in combination with a Tote Conveyor and Tote Containers to help provide an ergonomic and highly efficient pouch production process. The design of the AWS-5000 Pouch Machine provides a power outlet for connecting the Pouch Conveyor. Synchronized with the Pouch Machine, the motor speed of the Pouch Conveyor provides efficient collection of the pouches. Operating in conjunction with the Pouch Machine, a built-in safety feature will automatically stop the Conveyor, in the event of an interruption to pouch production.

AWS-5000 Pouch Machine
The Hydropac™ AWS-5000 Pouch Machine is an automatic packaging machine that produces water filled Hydropac™ Pouches using specially formulated Hydroseal™ Pouch Film. Filled pouches are a convenient, reliable and economical drinking water source for virtually all research rodents, and can be stored for extended periods, while maintaining water quality. Producing up to 1800 pouches an hour (30 per minute), the machine is operated through a user friendly, Touch Screen Control Panel. Water pouch size is selectable.
Hydropac™ Tote Containers
Each Tote Container stores up to 30 water filled Hydropac™ Pouches, providing a convenient, compact and ergonomic method for managing large or small watering needs. Totes stack securely, nest efficiently when empty and are made from translucent polypropylene for easy visibility of contents. Totes include a two-flap interlocking cover attached with stainless steel hinges and reinforced tabs for optional locking. Filled pouches can be stored in Totes for extended periods while maintaining water quality–a convenient method for maintaining emergency supplies.
The Tote Conveyor provides a height adjustable staging area for collecting filled Hydropac™ Pouches into Tote Containers. Designed to work in combination with the AWS- 5000 Pouch Machine and Pouch Conveyor, rollers on the Tote Conveyor create an ergonomic surface for the filling and staging of Tote Containers. With a production rate of 1800 pouches an hour, each Tote reaches its capacity of 30 pouches in one minute. Several Tote Containers can be staged on a single Conveyor before being moved onto a Tote Transfer Cart. Attach multiple Conveyors in sequence for extending a continuous platform as desired.
