Operational description

The bag is placed manually on the filling table and the gland is inserted into the jaws. The two hand start is then pressed and the bag is automatically de-capped.

The filling head automatically swings over to the open gland postion and lowers, this ensures a seal is made between the filling valve and the gland, filling of product is then started.

When the bag has filled to the pre-determined amount the filling valve is then raised automatically and the head swings away bringing the tap back to the empty gland position. It is then automatically re-inserted. The filled bag is then removed from the jaws.

Performance
