The Proper Valve Size for Multi-Wall Paper and Poly Pasted Valve Bags

What is a PVSE Multi-Wall Paper and Poly Bag?

A Pasted Valve Stepped End (“PVSE”) bag is a common industrial packaging style designed to package a wide variety of dry flowable products.

PVSE Multi-Wall Paper BagValve bags are packed on equipment that deposits material into the bag via a horizontal filling spout. Valve packing equipment can range from manual, hand-spouted equipment to modern fully-automated equipment.

Valve bags are filled through an opening located in the top corner of the bag. The product is then pumped or forced into the bag via air pressure, impeller, or auger. Properly sizing the bag is critical to achieving your operational objectives.
