When making the decision to move from manual container filling processes to Semi-Automatic filling, there are several possible drivers – efficiency gains, cost reduction, operator safety, and product/packaging integrity, to name a few. One of the big barriers is the flexibility of the manual process. A scale, an elevated tank, and a manual ball valve and you’re ready to fill almost any small container with little clean-up and zero change-over for container size. The Ideal-Pak® ME1-RNM has the answers.
The Ideal-Pak® ME1 Platform is a great first piece investment when navigating from manually filling and closing to semi-automatic filling. Option packages for automatic closing can be integrated with the filler or purchased as stand-alone, future add-on, automation upgrades. The ME1-RNM is that versatile, extremely flexible, semi-automatic net weight filling solution. Designed for containers from 200mL up to 26L (1/2 pint to 6 gallons) it is simple to operate and has a very low cost to maintain. This particular configuration included the Bottom-up filling method used for products that are subject to foaming during the fill process. Because tight-head containers are in the mix, the diving lance allows faster product flow within the container. The ME1-RNM is available with top fill, inside fill, and/or bottom filling capability to meet the requirements of almost any product or container geometry.
Change-over is simple. Enter 3 variables directly into the weight controller, adjust the container guide, and you are ready to go. For processing a variety of incompatible products, the product delivery can be mounted to a cart that easily rolls away for cleaning off-line. Roll-up a second cart, attach the product delivery hose, and you are back in operation. Clean the used cart after the ME1-RNM is returned to operation.
Fill any container. Change-over in minutes. Product delivery for any product characteristics. Options for hazardous environment duty. Versatility and flexibility in an easy to operate and maintain package. The Ideal-Pak® ME1-RNM is the right choice for semi-automatic filling operation.
