The Inline Piston Filler series is ideally suited for filling a diverse range of products and is equipped with 2, 4, or 6 heads. These fillers are ruggedly designed, yet precision built, for long trouble-free operation. This series will fill product volumes from 0.37 to 157 ounces with a single stroke (depending on cylinder and piston sizing) into metal, plastic, glass or rigid paper containers. Larger fills are attainable with multiple strokes into the same container. Product viscosities may range from 1-100,000 centipoises and above. With proper nozzle and cylinder sizing, this machine guarantees accuracies of +\- 1/2 of 1% of the fill volume.
The fill nozzles are attached to a fully automatic, air-operated raising/lowering spout bar. The rate of the bar movement is controlled by flow-control valves. This feature pneumatically lowers the nozzles to determined positions, then the nozzles and product valves open. The pistons dispense the required volume of product through the valves and nozzles. The nozzles and product valve close, and the spout bar and pistons return to the “home” position.
The advantage of using a vertical piston design is that the IPF has a smaller footprint, taking up less floor space. Product changeover and clean up are easily accomplished – the product valves, cylinders and pistons are located just inside the rear guard door, allowing the operator easy access.
