EXACTA Fillers symbolize the most innovative and modern features offered to the filling industry for liquid or high-viscous products; they represent the most ideal solutions for all those filling applications where flexibility, ease of use, rapid change-over and automated cleaning/washing operations are considered to be of paramount importance (personal care products; pharmaceutical products, food, liquid detergents).
Filling technology of the EXACTA Fillers is based on the adoption of flow-meters which can be either of the inductive magnetic type (Volumetric Filling) or of the mass-type (Weight/Mass Filling).
Both technologies have in common some main features which can be summarized as follows:
- High filling accuracy:σ= 0,2%
- No moving parts inside the measurement devices, that equates to no maintenance
- Measurement flow meter technology, that is not sensitive to electrical EMI or RFI interference or mechanical disturbance
- CIP/SIP at temperatures up to 130°C / 266°F
The range of the EXACTA rotary fillers is available in models from 8 to 60 filling valves, to accommodate the most varied production requirements with speeds up to 600 BPM.
All EXACTA Fillers can be supplied in the “large pitch” version, i.e. suitable to handle large size containers (up to 10 Litres).
All EXACTA Fillers can be supplied in Monoblock versions, combining one or more capping stations.
VOLUMETRIC FILLING - WEIGHT/MASS FILLING
Main features distinguishing our EXACTA Fillers are represented by:
- Mechanical structure thoroughly manufactured in 304 stainless steel
- Parts in direct contact with the product fabricated of 316/L stainless steel
- No bulk product tank installed on board the machine: it has been replaced by a simple delivery manifold that equates to a reduced volume of product inside the filler (12 litres on average)
- Possibility of feeding the machine with product coming directly from the storing reservoirs, even if these are placed far away from the filler (over 300 meters)
- Closed circuit product feeding system aimed at eliminating any possibility of contamination of the product due to air or other atmospheric agents
- Machine supplied with software and hardware package for the control of the product feeding pump (P.I.D.)
- Efficient wash (CIP) and sterilization (SIP) achieved rapidly, without the need for a spray ball or without having to disassemble any components
- Wash-up and sterilizing operations fully automatically processed and programmable from the operator’s panel; the washing solution is recovered on a removable tray or through a closed circuit system
- Every risk of product spillage during the filling process is eliminated as the nozzles enter the bottle neck for few millimetres
- Bottle format change-over operations are extremely simple and fast, since there is no need to use gripping system to hold the bottle itself
- Control systems ensure the correct filling of every bottle, any out-of-tolerance filled bottle is rejected onto a parallel discharge conveyor
- Flow-meters and, in general, all dosing operations are controlled and managed by a standard PLC installed aboard the machine
- All motors are variable speed, controlled by inverters and are programmable from the operator’s HMI panel
Magnetic flow meter technology (Volumetric Measuring) filler. Volumetric flow meters are suitable to handle all products having a minimum level of electrical conductivity of 5 µS/cm (microSiemens per centimeter).
The filler can be supplied in sanitary version: parts in direct contact with the product, as well as orbital welding and Tri-Clamp connections, are electro-polished.
The pharmaceutical products version of EXACTA/R can be provided with FDA Certification for the liquid contact path into the manifold including the filling valves (the sole components that have moving parts in direct contact with the product).
Mass flow meter technology (Mass Measuring) filler. Mass flow-meters are particularly suitable when handling liquid products without electrical conductivity, such as oils, lotions, creams etc.
The RM Filler can be supplied with a heating system for temperature control of the product delivery path.
The RC series of the EXACTA fillers are designed and built to handle corrosive products.
The machine is entirely manufactured in “Noble” metal: depending on the type of product being filled, Titanium, Hastelloy, Duplex or Super-Duplex are utilized. This series of fillers also includes positive ventilation and vapour extraction systems.
Special bottle handling features are offered to handle inclined neck bottles that are typically used for the Toilet Cleaner products.
The XP series of EXACTA fillers are designed and built for the Hazardous Duty filling applications. Explosion proof versions of this machine are suitable to handle all those products classified as potentially hazardous.
Protection degree and definition of the “dangerous areas” can vary according to the type of product to be filled and the level of protection requested.
The machine can be supplied and certified in full compliance with both ATEX European Standards and NEC U.S. Standards.
