Operational description

Web fed bags are linked into the filler and safety doors are closed. The filler encloses the cap in a sealed chamber then steam sterilises the cap and gland. The bag is then de-capped and filled with product, re-capped, steam flushed and released from chamber. The bag is then separated from the web and discharged to a waiting box, the next cycle then begins

When combined with one of the many outfeed options the filler becomes extremely versatile and can be linked with any upstream and downstream case erecting and closing equipment.
