Quality Piston Fillers



The Principle

The Fillmaster 5000 is a very versatile, heavy duty piston type filling machine. This model fills from water thin to highly viscous products as well as those containing large vegetables or particles. This model has a 3-way valve with sanitary quick disconnect fittings for the hopper, cylinder and nozzle.

How it Works

1. The piston takes an intake stroke drawing product from the hopper through the 3-way valve. 2. The valve plug shifts 90 degrees 3. The piston pushes product out of the cylinder through the nozzle and into the container 4. The valve plug shifts back cutting off the flow of product

Operation

Product may be manually loaded or pump fed to the filler’s hopper. The volume of fill is adjusted to the desired setting. Empty containers can be manually placed or fed automatically on the filler’s conveyor. The automatic container indexing system (air cylinder or starwheel) will stop the row on containers momentarily for filling. Depending upon the type of product and container being filled, the containers can be filled from top down, or by the optional diving nozzle mechanism for “bottom up” fill. Nozzles have a positive cut-off mechanism to stop the flow of the product cleanly after each fill cycle. Once in operation, the machine operates automatically and requires minimal operator assistance. Production fill rates depend on the type product being filled, container volume and size of the container’s opening. In general, fill rates run from approximately 8 to 25 cycles per minute, per cylinder. accuracy of fill is plus or minus ˝ of 1 percent by volume for each fill.
