Hygiene Rotary Cup Filler
The Principle Function:
The highly flexible Hygiene Rotary Filling and Sealing Machine, from the series GFR, is solidly built and easy to operate. This Series is designed for a very high hygienic standard and provides sensitive filled and sealed products with a long shelf-life.
The GFR series is available with an output speed of between 1000 and 6000 containers per hour, depending upon the product, volume, cup size, cup shape, and the head space inside the filled container.
The stations are designed with high flexibility and all functions are fully servo driven, pneumatic driven, frequency-controlled motor driven, and controlled from the control panel.
The rotary cup filler can be used for:
- Ice cream
- Soft cheese
- Salad dressing
- and many similar products
The highly hygienic machine frame is one of the most important parts of the filler. The machine table is built with a beveled surface for preventing standing wash water. If wash water is standing on the table and is not drained quickly and completely, microorganisms can grow in the water. These microorganisms can contaminate the product.
The table is fully welded to prevent penetration of cleaning water into the machine base (machine foot).
The door covers are made from tempered glass, adhered into a stainless steel frame. Glass cover doors can never be electrostatically charged like the polycarbonate doors. An electrostatic current allows unsterile dirt to cling to the door when opening.
When closing the doors, this unsterile dust will be shaken off the door and fall into the clean filling machine, contaminating the complete filling area.
Highly Flexible Machine Stations:
The Cup Sealing Unit seals the cups with foil. The complete unit is removable, without tools, for cleaning and maintaining.
A “Cup Serialisation Process” can be integrated into the cup entry station, sterilising the cups before entering the machine rotary table.
The highly hygienic, servo driven dosing unit fills highly sensitive and viscose products and can be equipped with a pressure tank up to 2 bar.
The Spice Dispersing Unit can put dry spices on top of the filled products, and the design of the spices on the product can be easily changed.
The Prefilled Cup Entering Robot takes the prefilled cups from a conveyor into the machine rotary table and can handle different cup sizes.
The station lifts the cups out of the cup cells and pushes the cups on to the exit conveyor belt.
The high clean filling nozzles for highly sensitive, highly hygienic products. Equipped with the “Seal Back Space Cleaning System”.
Clean air is necessary to fill products without preservatives. The filter housing of the unit is built from stainless steel and protects the filter from wash water.
The Cup Lid Adding Station is easily and quickly adaptable for different cup lid sizes.
