FILLING MACHINES

We offer a wide variety of manual, semi-automatic & fully automatic machines for filling, capping, plugging, labeling, date coding & bottle handling solutions. Our complete line of liquid filling machines & systems are designed with simple and versatile designs, built with high-quality materials to provide many years of service and offer a cost-effective solution for almost any liquid packaging application.

Filling industry have adopted the latest techniques and inventions to manufacture high capacity and fast filling processes now a day. Filling machine come in varied types to fill different nature of products like cream, oil, liquid beverages, light and heavy sauce, liquid soap, lotion, gel, powder, dry syrup, solid, thick liquid and many more in filling technology. The array of filling machine is available for various applications for bottles, pouches, containers, bags, jars etc. Our liquid fillers meet the requirement of efficiency, accuracy, precision, speed and automation in filling process.

No one type of filling machine can handle all liquids in all industries. For example, a machine that fills bottled water cannot fill cosmetic cold cream. Nor would a chemical duty filler be used to fill pharmaceutical grade or dairy products.  Although there are many different types of filling technologies, there are relatively few that are versatile, practical and cost effective to own and operate. The choice of filling machine depends on the range of viscosities, temperature, chemical compatibility, particulate size, foam characteristics, and hazardous environment considerations. Each one of the machines below is discussed with its strengths and weaknesses and range of best suited applications.

Overflow Filling Machines:

This type of filler is perhaps the most widely used machine in small bottle filling operations because it handles a wide range of thin, free flowing liquids as well as liquids with medium viscosity. This machine is also commonly referred to as a “fill to level” filling machine or cosmetic height filler. This means that machine fills to a target fill height in the container rather than volumetrically. But it can also be shown that as long as the container specification do not vary greatly, the volumetric accuracy of this machine is excellent.

Because this filler operates in a closed loop basis, it is also ideal for handling foamy products.  The Examples of products that work well in this filler are bottled water, liquid soap, motor oil, cleansers and even some dairy products. It can be constructed in both chemical duty versions as well as sanitary versions capable of filling pasteurized products at high temperatures.

This machine is relatively low cost and easy to use. However it is generally not useable for products with viscosities greater than 25000 centipose or products that have any particulates exceeding approximately 1/16″ diameter.

Piston Filling Machines:

Piston Filling Machines

The piston filler is one of the oldest and most reliable types of fillers used in the packaging industry. This filling machine is best suited for viscous products that are paste, semi paste, or chunky with large particulates. Piston fillers are primarily built to meet food grade standards and commonly fill heavy sauces, salsas, salad dressings, cosmetic creams, heavy shampoo, gels, and conditioners. Thy are also used for viscous chemical preparations like paste cleaners and waxes, adhesives and epoxys, heavy lubricant oils and greases.
The machine works by a simple principle; The piston is drawn back in its cylinder so that the product is sucked into the cylinder. A rotary valve then changes position so that the product is then pushed out of the nozzle instead of back into the hopper. The volume of the product that is sucked into the cylinder is the precise volume that will be dispensed into the container.
The advantage of this type of filing machine is that involves conventional mechanical technology that is easy to understand for most users. It is also the most cost effective, accurate and fastest way to fill fairly thick products. Although more costly than overflow and time gravity systems discussed above, it costs less than the servo pump filler is still the most cost effective filling machine for thick products.

Corrosive Environment Filling Machines:

Time gravity fillers are often used for filling of corrosive products. But sometimes the products being filled are so aggressive that special construction methods are required. Harsh factory environments or where the product being filled can also be particularly aggressive on machinery. This includes not only chemical plants plants producing strong acids or bleach but also food plants using brine or sugar solutions in their products. In both cases, even the factory air alone contributes to the accelerated degradation of the machinery.

Machine integrity can be enhanced by using special powder and industrial polymer coatings on structural and other exposed machinery components. Also, whenever practical, substitution of chemical resistant plastics such as UHMW and Teflon are used in place of metal.

Not only are the frame components at risk in these environments but the fluid path materials must be specifically chosen for the types of products they come into direct contact with. For example, Kynar and Teflon fluid path materials may be used in a bleach filling machine because of their excellent resistance to the aggressive properties of bleach.

It should be noted that there is no ideal combination of materials in a filling machine when it comes to corrosive filling. Avoidance of some metal components is impossible particularly in the case of fasteners. The operator of this type of machinery should be prepared for stringent maintenance of these types of machines.
