Food Filling Machines, various filling technologies, part-5
Rinser, Filler, Capper, Triblock Filling Machine: The triblock rinsing, filling and capping machine, is a multi-purpose device used for various applications, such as rinsing, filling and capping of a twist cap, lid or pressured cap. The machine is operated with a LCD touch screen, from which all functions can be configured, read out, enabled and stored. RINSING METHODS:- In the rinsing process, you can choose between the following systems: Rinsing with air Rinsing with liquids FILLING METHODS:- The filling method is selected based on the process characteristics, such as the liquids you are working with, the volume and the type of packaging. Some of the options are:- Digital flow meters (flow rate measurement) Piston pump Cogwheel flow meter Peristaltic pump CAPPING METHODS:- For the capping process, you can choose between manually positioning the lids, or use a fully automated cap supply system, using the pick & place system. For tightening and pressuring you can use:- Magnetic capping head Servo capping head Pressured capping head ROPP capping head Infeed Air Conveyor (With Air Blower):- Infeed air conveyor is usually fitted with high pressure air blower with filter fitted on the suction side. This conveyor feeds empty bottles into the in-feed rotor by neck holding mechanism of the Tri-block machine. The conveyor is mounted at right angles to the Tri-block machine. Rinsing cycle:- The In-feed Rotor is transfer the bottle from In-feed Air Conveyor to the Rinsing rotor. The bottles are automatically picked up by the rinser rotor from in-feed rotor with neck holding & bring it to the grippers clamp. The gripper’s clamps turn them upside down means inverted positions which place the bottle mouth over the nozzle. Where the fountain type nozzle spray water in-side the bottle in series, each bottle being rinsed up to four seconds. Mechanical rinse valve provides the feature “NO BOTTLE NO RINSING”. When the bottles are held at the neck, there is no distortion of the bottle profile. At the end of the rinsing cycle, the bottle is drained of most reschedule water, before being straightened out and handed over to the filling rotor for the filler operation. Filling Cycle:- The mechanical or electronic filling valves, mounted radically on the rotary filling tank, are actuated automatically by the bottles when lifted up to commence filling. Here again the bottles are held at the neck or by the bottom plates, which ensures precise valve centering. Consequently, there is no bottle damage or water wastage during the filling operation. Capping Cycle:- The container rotor feed the bottle from the filling module to the capper rotor. The Capper Rotor brings the container below the sealing head in the subsequent indexing part, meanwhile the rotating head pick-up a cap from the cap star wheel which it gets from delivery chute of cap filling bowl, where the body and the neck of the container are positioned below the rotating head, where the sealing head is performing perfect operation of sealing.
