Multi-Fill Promises High Profile Appearance at Emballage
West Jordan, Utah, USA-headquartered Multi-Fill Inc. has announced that it will showcase its newly redesigned MPFSC-120 automatic volumetric filler at the upcoming Emballage in Paris. The November 14-17 trade fair, combined with the Manutention exhibition, is under the umbrella of All4Pack Paris, which is promoted as the “global marketplace for packaging, processing, printing and handling.”
Improvements of the MPFSC-120 relate mostly to overall operation efficiency, sanitation and safety aspects of the machine. Among its new features are: separation of electrical and pneumatic components into two cabinets for additional safety; easier latch system, quick disassembly of the filling head, standardization of components, improved sanitary design of the filling head.
Where labor costs are of concern, food processors filling short goods can add a bulk feeder to the volumetric filler to reduce the amount of time that operators spend feeding the machine. The bulk feeder utilizes a first-in, first-out product flow, and automatically slows down or speeds up with the rest of the line.
Customers wanting to fill products such as fermented vegetables, fruit cocktail or pico de gallo stand to benefit by adding a liquid pump option to the volumetric filler. While not a sauce filler, the liquid pump collects liquid that is normally lost through the bottom of the conveyor and re-circulates it to the filling head, where it is dosed with the product into the container. If a drier product is desired, the liquid can be siphoned off and discarded altogether.
The semi-automatic MPFMP-060 volumetric filler will also be on display during the Emballage trade show in Hall 5a, Stand C 063. The model is designed to allow product to be placed into the pan and moved to the filling head by an operator. This filler comes with an incorporated spare parts rack to store change parts or removable components during cleaning.
Multi-Fill is regarded worldwide as a leading manufacturer of volumetric filling systems for cooked pasta (long or short noodles), rice, cut fruits and vegetables, shredded meats, seafood pieces, gourmet pet foods and deli-type salads. Its equipment is known for being reliable, versatile, easy to clean, compact, cost effective, and long lasting with low maintenance requirements.
