Process description

  • The containers enter the machine on the conveyor with plastic or stainless steel belt. Before entering the filling area, they are stopped by inlet pneumatic gate. Once the previous group of filled containers leaves the filling station, the gate opens and allows next group of containers to enter. The inlet gate is closed again afterwards. In case one or more containers are missing, the system waits and the filling process does not start.
  • After entering of all the bottles, the filling process starts. As soon as the bottle necks are automatically centered, the nozzles dive into the bottles and open. The dose is measured and dosed by Lobe pumps. The filled dose is adjustable from the touch screen, which enables fast and easy change of the dosing volume and parameters.
  • After finishing of the filling process, the nozzles close and the drip tray comes under the nozzles to avoid staining the containers. Then the outlet gate opens and lets the containers out of the filling machine.
