Gravity filling machines are best for liquids that do not change viscosity (thickness of the liquid) when the temperature of the product changes. Gravity fillers use simple time-based controls to fill low viscosity liquid products.
The Automatic Gravity Filler is ideal for filling thin liquids with consistent viscosity. Volumetric time gravity filling method produces repeatable and accurate fill volumes. The Gravity Filler is manufactured with a heavy duty 304 stainless steel, tig-welded tube frame and reservoir. It also features user friendly PLC controls and touch screen HMI panel. This filler is capable of accommodating up to 16 heads, and utilizes an automatic product level sensing float system for filling efficiency. Many more features and options are available for even more versatility and customization. Gravity Fillers are utilized by the food and beverage, cleaning and specialty chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal care industries for various filling projects. The Automatic Gravity Filler can be built to suit a wide variety of applications including sanitary, hazardous, flammable, and corrosive products and environments.
Available in four different types of filling methods: The Volumetric Single Head Piston Filler comes in a variety of Piston sizes for either thin or thick products while the Single Head Positive Displacement Pump Filler can fill a wide range of product viscosities from 1oz to 1 gallon. The Gravity Filler fills thin liquids volumetrically-by-time and can be configured for two or four heads. The Two Head Overflow Filler provides exceptional cosmetic fills for thin products by offering an all-inclusive, user- friendly production line. Econoline Systems include a 28 inch Rotary Loading Turntable, 10 foot Conveyor, your choice of four Automatic Fillers, Handheld Chuck Capper, plus one Chuck and Insert, and a 28 inch Rotary Accumulating Turntable. These systems are built with anodized aluminum construction and mounted on casters with leveling legs requiring only minimal assembly. PLC touch screen controls and DC gear motors on the Turntables and Conveyor come standard.
APACKS Semi-Automatic Tabletop Gravity Filler is ideal for a variety of thin products. High accuracies are achieved using the volumetric-by-time filling method. This Semi-Automatic Filler is manufactured with a heavy duty 304 stainless steel, tig-welded frame and is available with four 316 stainless steel Fill Heads. PLC controls with touch screen HMI and a polyethylene gravity reservoir come standard. Product can be gravity fed from an overhead bulk tank or pumped from a portable or fixed bulk tank. Options are available for even more versatility, such as a variety of pumps to handle various products and customer applications. Place on a work table or add a frame to stand alone over APACKS Slidetrack or Conveyer. Gravity Fillers are commonly used for filling beverages and other thin products, especially where foaming may be an issue.
The APACKS Molten Filling Machine is designed to fill lip balms, candle wax, stick deodorants, lipstick, shoe polish, car wax, glycerin soaps and petrolatum based products that flow when hot and cool to a solid at ambient temperature. The FMI-6000-AP Molten Filling Machine accurately fill liquids, and liquified solids, into molds or containers at temperatures up to 200° Fahrenheit. The product tank and each fill head are heated and temperature controlled. All machine functions are PLC controlled.
