The machine is built-up in stainless steel AISI 304 while all parts in contact with the food product, are made of stainless steel AISI 316 or special plastic material food grade.
The transportation/feeding of the empty containers is obtained by means of a conveyor belt with stainless steel table-top chain.
Double profiled screw feeder in entry for containers orientation and synchronization
Can stop set on the containers entry conveyor belt synchronized with the screw feeder
Profiled entry star wheel and guide
The cylinder-piston units and the outside body female of the valves are made of stainless steel AISI 316, while the inlet shutters are made of special plastic material which is suitable to come into contact with food product, approval by FDA.
Product tank in stainless steel; the level control inside the product tank is obtained by means of a capacitive probe.
On the machine is also installed an electro-pneumatic device “No Container No Fill” in order to close the product valve cock when there is no container under the product nozzle.
The motorization is given by a gear- box controlled by electronic inverter which allows to obtain an optimum speed adjustment and a more gradual start and stop of the machine.
Outlet transport with independent motorization, transport in stainless steel chain.
