FROM POWDERS TO LIQUIDS, MICRO TO MACRO – WE HAVE THE MATCHING FILLING SOLUTION
The majority of the products processed in our plants are in powder or liquid form. For powder applications, we offer a range of standard machines. For the filling of liquids, we design tailor-made solutions to suit the actual application. For both liquids and powders, we also offer solutions for micro and macro filling.
For free-flowable powder, we use auger fillers where a servo-driven endless screw transfers the powder through a hopper. The angular movement is thereby proportional to the dosed volume and can be adjusted individually at each auger. This technology is available for both single-lane and multiple-lane filling plants. By integrating a weighing cell, the system can quickly respond to fluctuations in the density of the powder.
Turntables are the preferred solution for naturally flowable powders. They combine accuracy with high speed and are ideal for products such as sugar, milk powder or instant coffee.
For volumetric powder filling, a plate with holes of a predefined volume is moved back and forth under the powder bunker. The amount of powder placed in the holes corresponds to the desired setpoint volume.
Piston fillers allow for precision filling of liquids, pasty products as well as fluids containing particles, lumps or solid pieces. They are easy to operate and provide excellent flexibility as regards the filling volume, which can be easily adjusted by changing the stroke length. We use piston fillers in machines for food and pet food as well as healthcare products.
Where containers are filled with the same product on multiple lanes, time-pressure systems are the technology of choice. They can be easily implemented by installing standard shut-off valves and a shared pressure vessel serving all lanes.
Peristaltic pumps offer huge advantages as regards cleanliness and hygiene, which is of course particularly important for the healthcare sector. We recommend these systems for machines with frequent product changes, as this can be done by simply changing the hoses and filling needles. In contrast to time-pressure systems, peristaltic pumps do not require a pressure vessel.
