Federal Mfg. Introduces a Hygienic Pressure/Gravity Filling Machine for Food Applications Including Sauces, Syrups, Edible Oils, and Other Viscous Food Products
Press release date: July 16, 2014
This innovative new solution is designed to reduce product waste, deliver fast filling of viscous food products, and give the customer greater flexibility. The unit can also be used to fill non-viscous food products for two machines in one solution.
MILWAUKEE, WI — Federal Mfg., powered by Pro Mach, introduces a hygienic pressure/gravity filling machine for food applications including sauces, syrups, edible oils, and other viscous foods with speeds up to 300 bottles per minute. Unlike other pressure/gravity filling machines, the new Federal offering utilizes a sanitary overfill bowl that captures any product overflow so that it can be used without reprocessing, which reduces waste, time, and energy. This new machine also fills non-viscous food products for greater flexibility – two machines in one.
Typically, pressure/gravity filling machines pump any overflow product into a free standing overflow tank. For food applications, this means that any product in the tank would have to be reprocessed before it could be used or discarded. Federal’s new innovative design integrates a stainless steel overflow bowl into the overall body of the machine and its clean in place system. Product in that hygienic tank is pumped up into the filler bowl for reuse. Integration of the overflow tank into the filling machine base also reduces the overall footprint of this solution as compared to free standing options.
Until the development of this machine, viscous food products shared the same filling technology as household chemicals, petroleum products, and paints. “We saw a real need in the food industry for a filling solution designed specifically for sanitary operation,” said Mike Collins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Federal Mfg. “The first unit is already at a customer’s plant, bottling hot sauce and performing to expectations.”
A video of the machine bottling hot sauce is available for download. For more information about Federal’s fillers and cappers, including the new sanitary pressure/gravity filler, call 1-855-371-4639 and visit www.FederalMfg.com.
Durable, reliable, and hygienic designs have been the hallmarks of Federal fillers and cappers since 1946. To meet the strict demands of today’s consumer, Federal has developed filling systems that further protect the quality, freshness, and flavor of products without compromising the core machine characteristics customers have come to expect in terms of operations and productivity. www.FederalMfg.com.
