Functioning

Machine suitable to fill glass / metal / PET containers with dense or semi-dense products even containing small solid pieces (tomato concentrate and pulp, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, sauces, purées, patés, creams, baby food, honey, jam, etc.).
 
Containers feeding by a conveyor, a screw which adjusts the containers pace and a transferring star which positions the containers under the dosing pistons.
In the first phase, during the machine’s rotation, the cylinder is filled aspirating the product from the tank by means of the cam which controls the pistons; in the second phase the product is transferred into the container by means of the nozzle connected to the diverting valve’s body.
The filling volume is adjustable from the control panel by means of a motorized cam according to the container size.
If necessary, after the format changeover it is possible to optimise the filling precision by intervening on the control panel even with the machine in operation.
After the filling the container is gently moved to the Capper.

FOR VISCOUS PRODUCTS (mayonnaise or dense sauces) TWO PISTON FILLER VERSIONS ARE AVAILABLE. BOTH ALLOW TO FILL CONTAINERS FROM THE BOTTOM, so as to avoid the possible formation of air bubbles :
 
VERSION DRP/PMM with lower rotating carrousel supporting a series of mobile plates controlled by a mechanical cam.
 
VERSION DRP/PME with lower rotating carrousel supporting a series of mobile plates with electronically controlled plates lifting system (STV patent).
The electronic control system allows to carry out the format changeover automatically by selecting pre-set recipes from the Touch-Screen with significant time saving.
Moreover the filling volume is adjustable also micrometrically with the machine in operation with consequent time saving.
