Inline Cup Filler
The Principle Function:
The highly flexible and hygienic Inline Cup Filler, from the series AFIC, is solidly built and easy to operate.
This series is designed for a very high hygienic standard and provides filled and sealed products with a long shelf-life.
The AFR series is available with an output speed of between 3000 and 12,000 containers per hour, depending upon the product, volume, cup size, cup shape, and the head space inside of 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 inline 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 Entry Station is easily and quickly adaptable for different cup sizes. The station can be equipped with a cup sterilisation unit.
The Cup Exit Station brings out the cups from its undercarriage and transfers them to the conveyor.
Fully automatic cleanable Salad Filling Station, for many different products like fruit salads, vegetable salads and more…
The Cup Sealing Unit seals the cups with foil. The complete unit is removable, without tools, for cleaning and maintaining.
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 cups are fed as cup stacks on the “Cup In Feed Conveyor” allowing the machine to run up to 30 minutes without feeding new cup stacks.
The high clean filling nozzles for highly sensitive, highly hygienic products. Equipped with the “Seal Back Space Cleaning System”.
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.
