Quality Piston Fillers



The Principle

The Flo-Master employs a very simple, volumetric method to draw liquids and other low viscosity products such as oils or juices directly from a tank or drum, eliminating the need for a hopper. This model and also be used as a metering pump to dispense a controlled volume.

How it works

1. The piston takes an intake stroke drawing product from the hopper through the lower check valve while closing off the upper check valve. 2. On the discharge stroke, the piston pushes the product from the cylinder through the upper check valve to the nozzle, while closing the lower check valve.


Operation

The intake tubing of the filler can be immersed directly into the product tank or can be connected directly to a gravity fed manifold or the bottom discharge fitting of tank or kettle. The volume of fill is adjusted to the desired setting. Empty containers can be manually placed or fed automatically on the filler′s conveyor. The automatic container indexing system (air cylinder or starwheel) will stop the row on containers momentarily for filling. Depending upon the type of product and container being filled, the containers can be filled from top down, or by the optional diving nozzle mechanism for ″bottom up″ fill. Nozzles have a positive cut-off mechanism to stop the flow of the product cleanly after each fill cycle. Once in operation, the machine operates automatically and requires minimal operator assistance. Production fill rates depend on the type product being filled, container volume and size of the container′s opening. In general, fill rates run from approximately 8 to 25 cycles per minute, per cylinder. accuracy of fill is plus or minus ½ of 1 percent by volume for each fill.
