All-Fill International continue another highly successful year with the successful first-time completion of a rigorous FAT (Factory Acceptance Test).
The client, an internationally known producer and packager of freeze-dried coffee granules and whole beans, came to All-Fill International for the complete filling line, with the All-Fill auger filling machine situated at the heart of the line.
We worked with suppliers to provide complimentary peripheral equipment to complete the filling line, working closely with trusted suppliers to ensure the most suitable and cost-effective solution for the final customer.
The product flow commences with a depalletiser and air-rinser unit, ensuring the jars to be filled are clean and free of potential contaminants. After the product passes through a metal detector it enters the All-Fill rotary filling machine.
Owing to the speeds required of up to 200 filled jars per minute, a twin-head filling system is utilised. A single hopper in siamese configuration with two servo driven augers allows two fills to be completed simultaneously, into the continuously rotating pockets of the All-Fill continuous motion rotary filling machine to precisely fill the jars to the customer’s required weight and tolerance.
Enclosed in a complete nitrogen rich enclosure, once jars are filled, a dosing unit sprays coffee aroma inside each jar prior to foil sealing, then capped, labelled and laser-marked by specialised machines integrated to the filling line. Each machine becomes a module within the overall filling line and the entire line concept is proven and stress tested at the All-Fill site so the customer can be completely confident once the equipment arrives onto their site.
