Piston filling machines

Filmatic Packaging Systems offers professional engineering services with regard to turnkey liquid packaging systems.

Linear Piston Filler

Bottles: 250ml – 5 000ml

The machine is fully automatic and equipped with a HMI Interface for ease of operation.

An adjustment mechanism allows for fast changeovers between different bottle types by simply performing a minor adjustment, without the need to replace any parts on the machine

​Designed entirely in grade 304 stainless steel (non-contact parts), and the parts in contact with the product from grade 316 stainless steel. The machine can handle a large range of bottle sizes and types, controlled by PLC and driven by Servo Motors.

Equipped to fill products with high foaming characteristics by means of the design of the filling nozzles / pistons.

Rotary Piston Filler

Our range of Rotary Piston Fillers are designed to fill more viscous products such as mayonnaise, edible oil, sauces, industrial fluids such as motor oils etc. We have a versatile range of Rotary Piston Filling Machines, reaching filling speeds from 20 bottles per minute to 300 bottles per minute.

    Rotary filler benefits
    • Higher filling accuracy achieved by means of volumetric filling
    • Non-contact filling eliminate product contamination by transfer
    • Minimal moving parts in contact with product which makes it easy to sanitise with low maintenance and down time
    • Accommodate up to 3 different cap sizes and formats on 1 machine
    • Quick change overs between different bottle and cap sizes
    • Ease of operation

    Gravity fed, level filling solutions

    This filling system is the most widely used on Filmatic’s rotary fillers.  Containers are filled up to a preset filling level.  The level is set with the use of removable spacers.  The valves are highly suitable for single strength products such as water and juice, and handle foaming products such as milk with ease.  Recent developments on the level filling valves include a redesigned bellow that can be CIP’d without the need for disassembling the valve.  

    Vacuum assisted, level filling solutions

    This filling system is most often used for slightly viscous products such as edible oil.  A low level of vacuum is generated in the unfilled container, assisting the product to be sucked into the container.  This solution is limited to the used of rigid circular containers. 

    Piston fillers

    For more viscous products, and products with a solid content, the piston filler is a very viable filling system.  Pistons filling machines are volumetric filling systems, meaning that a set volume is discharged into the container during every cycle. 

    Weigh fillers

    Arguable the most accurate filling solution available.  This is also the most technologically advanced filling solution and as such the most expensive.  This system is often selected where high value product is filled.  Filmatic recently developed a weight filling system specifically aimed at filling foaming product such as milk at a production rate that compares favourably with the production rate of level filling solutions.  The newly developed system makes use of a pressurised supply system and a continually variable flowrate filling valve to achieve high production capacity with low foam generation.

    Time filling

    On the most basic Filmatic filler, time filling is used, where a valve is opened for a preset time.  This filling system is very accurate if the product is homogenous and consistent.  It is a lower cost solution but with a definite place in the entry level markets.
