Used Volumetric Equipment
Filler Powder Volumetric is a volumetric powder filler that uses a given size cup to measure out the proper volume of product. The product is metered from a hopper into the cup (the cup is filled to the top). Once the cup is filled, it indexes until it is discharged into the container. Different size cups can be outfitted to the machine to change the volume of product that is measured. As an example of what volumetric powder fillers are capable of, picture running a knife over the top of a measuring cup to ensure the proper volume is measured. The flexibility of volumetric filling systems allows them to be adapted to fill a wide variety of products ranging from thin alcohol to thick caulking compounds. Volumetric powder fillers can be used to fill rigid containers or light weight ones that may be distorted by the forces of vacuum or pressure used in some techniques.
