- Pail fillers for single containers
- Pre-configured pail filling stations
- Automatic pail fillers
- Fully automatic pail filling systems
- High speed pail filling systems
At your request, we supply you with a complete pail filling solution comprising anything from robot-supported pail denesting and pail sealing to lid placers and lid pressers to automatic palletising systems.
SAFETY - ACCURACY - FLEXIBILITY
Repeatable accuracy as well as the highest degree of safety during product filling are fundamental requirements placed on pail filling equipment meeting the highest quality standards.
Irrespective whether your products are uncritical, foaming, explosive or flammable commodities, Feige FILLING as specialist for filling equipment will make available suitable pail filling technologies. All automatic pail filling machines have a standardised working principle. Whether individually or several units arranged close to each other, the pails reach the automatic filling unit clean and empty and leave it filled with calibrated accuracy, clean and capped. Central components of the automatic pail filling machine are filling valve and weigh scale.
The filling operation takes place using the well-proven coarse/fine fill process or the Feige product flow control. In order to observe the calibration error limits, it is necessary to restrict the volume flow towards the end of the filling process.
Pail filling - safely
With the Feige filling valve, you fill your liquid and viscous products with a proportional or multi-stage dosing system. The filling valve is dimensioned in accordance with your requirements on filling opening, viscosity and volume flow. Resistant materials such as stainless steel, Teflon, Hastelloy, titanium, nickel, PVDF and PTFE guarantee the reliable use of the filling valve. Depending on the area of application, you can also resort to filling valves of hygenic design, heated and with overfill protection. To enable you to change the filling valve within seconds during operation, a stainless steel quick-action filling valve mount is a standard feature.
The filling valves are equipped with important safety functions such as:
- Closing / opening with compressed air
- Closing with spring force
- Relieved of product pressure
- Leakage monitoring of the sealing space
- Fill level check
- Minimum dead space
Measuring the pail filling with calibrated accuracy
The Feige weigh scale terminal is the heart of the pail filling equipment. Measuring the dosed filling volumes with calibrated accuracy is carried out with mass flowmeters (minimum filling volume and filling tolerance) or load cells (maximum weight), which are integrated in the pail filling equipment as a system approved for verification. Safety mechanisms assume the control of all important parameters.
You operate the weigh scale terminal via discrete elements or a touch panel with alphanumerical input. The weigh scale records your operating data, logs the weighing results and puts statistical data at your disposal. The system communicates with your network or outputs the data on a mobile USB flash drive.
PROCESS OPTIMISATION AND QUALITY
To ensure the long-term success of your company, you are of course always keen on optimising your processes. Individual pail filling equipment accurately tailored to your production requirements is indispensable for ensuring continuous efficiency and competitiveness and cost effective logistics. We will provide you with support across the entire process chain.
At the beginning of the pail filling process, you are for instance supported by the highly flexible pail denester for continuous denesting and uninterruptible pail feed with integrated safety system. Denesting and running-in any make of pail is achieved within a very short time. Retooling to other pail sizes or heights is just as smoothly managed as changing the stacking distance or the range. Various pail shapes and sizes are separated and placed onto the conveyors entirely without any mouldings.
Demanding requirements in case of food or reactive products require a proper closing of the pails. To meet the corresponding requirements, sealing with suitable films is also possible. Sealing is particularly desirable if high demands on freshness have to be met simultaneously to ensuring an original quality sealing.
The Feige pail sealer processes round, oval and angular pail shapes. You decide whether sealing from the roller is to be done fully automatically in one working step or rather semiautomatically with manual two-hand actuation at the tabletop unit. The sealing is applied either firmly or peelable with pull tab, if desired also with film pattern, just as you wish.
FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR REQUIREMENTS
You decide on the degree of automation. Compile your semi-automatic pail filling equipment from the Feige modular assembly system according to your individual requirements for the calibrated pail filling.
Select the equipment for your type of pail filling - single units consisting of round, angular or oval pails or combined with our conveying and palletising technology. Our solutions will support you during the entire pail filling process.
Accelerate your pail filling processes
The three product lines of Feige FILLING for semi-automatic pail filling offer you all the functions of a gravimetric filler, ranging from the reasonably priced pail filler "Slim Line" and the pre-configured pail filling station "Compact Line" to the automatic pail filling machine "Advanced Line" with extensive peripherals.
The systems convince by their ease of operation and installation. Depending on the application, they are also available in mobile designs conforming to ATEX requirements. All main functions of a gravimetric pail filler are executed in time-tested Feige quality.
You can supplement pail filling equipment produced by Feige FILLING at any time with additional modules, which integrate further working steps such as removing and marking the containers.
The individual pails are positioned below the filling valve, automatically filled with calibrated accuracy and manually closed. Optionally, the filled pails can afterwards be palletised with Feige palletising systems. Driven roller conveyors for the in-feed and out-feed area support the workflow during the feeding of empty pails and removal of filled pails.
After actuating the start button, the pail is automatically tared and filled with calibrated accuracy using the coarse / fine fill process or the Feige product flow control. The necessary auxiliary tools such as lid placer and lid closer are available to you for a precise closing of the pails.
