The Can Filling System FKFII by VEMAG – Sustainability counts!
A fully automatic device for precise and clean filling of jars and cans
Food safety and packaging sustainability are some of the central values for the consumers. Recyclable packaging, such as cans and jars, is more demanded than ever, experiencing a huge comeback. VEMAG with its can filling system FKFII presents a trendsetting way of an environment-friendly application. Moreover, the FKFII offers additional benefits: Paste-like and coarse products are dispensed precisely, reliably and quickly.
The FKFII in conjunction with a VEMAG filling machine form a perfect and complete depositing system. Whether paste-like, soft or coarse products, from pork knuckle to pet food: the volume-based filling masses are identical and all products are gently filled, sinewy goods are precisely cut and the portions are separated up to the gram – typically VEMAG.
The filling speed is adjusted by means of a large, intuitively operated graphic display, enabling a continuous filling of up to 120 receptacles per minute and, thus, meeting industrial requirements.
The great portioning performance allows the can filling machine to be highly economical and to optimise the production capacities.
The integrated infeed and output conveyor belts guarantee continuous supply of receptacles to the filling station and assist the transfer onto the sealing machine.
Reliable Portioning: Thanks to the Filling Head with a Ball Lock and a Rotating Knife
The defined volume mass is guaranteed by means of a ball valve. A simultaneous rotation of the filling head, supported by an additional ring knife, enables perfect separation of the portions: the weights are accurate, the cans and jars are filled perfectly, and the container edges stay hygienically clean.
Excess weight as well as underweight is efficiently avoided, the giveaway is reliably reduced, allowing perfect yields, ensuring more sold product based on the same amount of raw materials.
Cans with a diameter of up to 99 mm and a height of up to 145 mm are lifted up by the can filling machine until the can bottom is placed directly under the filling head. The can gets lowered while being filled, guaranteeing a perfect and air-free filling pattern. The maximum filling volume per can is 1.200ml.
Just like any other VEMAG machine or attachment, the FKFII is designed to deliver optimum hygiene. Each product-conducting part can be quickly dismantled for a product change or the daily cleaning routine. The entire system can be cleaned with low pressure and standard detergents.
