The single head volumetric piston filler can fill thin liquids like water and juice as well as thick pastes like glue, ointments and sauces. It uses a barrel and piston arrangement that is driven by a pneumatic cylinder having a fixed stroke. All contact parts are made of either Stainless Steel 316/304 depending on the client's requirement and comes fitted with a stainless steel hopper/tank (Capacity will be as per client requirements). Depending on the volume and material, this single head volumetric filler can provide an output rate from anywhere between 6-15 containers per minute.
The pneumatic cylinder is actuated by a lever or foot operated valve and its stroke is limited by an adjustable screw stop at the rear of the machine. The calibrated scale adjacent to the screw stop allows the operator to mark the exact positions corresponding to the desired volume. The single head volumetric piston filler can fill volumes from 50 ml up to 1000 ml and is available in three different variants based on the type of valve in use:
1VNR: The first variant comes with a simple double check valve arrangement and does not have a hopper/tank. It is ideal for filling liquids with a viscosity close to that of water and without particulate matter. Examples include, light oils, syrups, chemicals, milk and synthetic juice.
1VPV: The second variant comes with a linear 3-way valve that is pneumatically operated and can handle liquids and pastes that are much more viscous than water, provided that it does not contain particulate matter. Examples include, glue, face creams, yogurt, liquid soap and honey. (This variant comes with a stainless steel hopper/tank)
1VRV: The final variant comes with a rotary 3-way valve that is pneumatically operated and can handle extremely thick pastes that contain particulate matter. Examples include, face pack, fruit pulp, sauces, and jams. (This variant comes with a stainless steel hopper/tank)
Note**: The single head volumetric piston filler machine will require a 2 H.P air compressor and a three phase power supply as pre-requisites for operation.
