Filling And Closing Systems

The components required for most filling and closing systems are a pail filling machine and a pressure closer. These can be purchased separately and installed together or can be bought as one unit to increase productivity and speed. Some systems are fast enough to fill and close up to five pails per minute.

The choice between existing filling and closing systems should start with the type of material that will be processed. These include standard, corrosive, hazardous and food grade products. Mixing materials should be avoided at all costs; if multiple liquids are going to be packaged in one business, each liquid type should have its own filling and closing system.

Stainless steel frames are best for supporting heavy pail containers and eliminate the chance of rust and other materials to contaminate the pails. If two different brand names are put together, careful consideration of operational limitations should be taken. If a filling machine can only accept pails larger than 18 liters, for example, it would be a waste of money to purchase a closing machine that is limited to pail sizes of two to 20 liters.

Portable Filling and Closing Systems

With current consumer demands and the changing retail forces common in today's world, manufacturers must be able to adjust their company's factory floor to fit new additions and remove outdated technologies. Many factories today include filling and closing systems that are placed on portable rolling bases. These can be maneuvered into the most ergonomic and productive place on the floor.
