Tabletop Filler and Capper Provide Quick Tubing Change

The versatile FF30 Bottle Handling System from Flexicon America Inc., conveniently moves from liquid fills to handling viscous ointments, gels or creams simply by attachment to the appropriate dispensing pump.

Sterility and agility characterize the performance of the Flexicon PF6 Peristaltic Filler when paired with the FF30 Tabletop Filling and Capping Machine as they work in tandem to meet a wide range of liquid products, container sizes and fill volumes.

Since liquid fill materials within the PF6 are completely isolated within the replaceable sterile silicone tubing, all that is required to switch from one liquid product or fill volume to another is a fast, simple change of tubing.   Bottle and cap size changes can be made in about two minutes and complete product changeovers are handled in about 15 minutes.

For more viscous liquids, ointments and gels, the Tabletop FF30 is simply moved into place and paired with the easy-setup, quick calibrating, simple-to-clean DF32 Positive Displacement pump head.  No change parts other than the filling nozzle are required.  The gentle handling DF32 positive displacement pump generates no flow pulsation and does not interfere with homogeneous products.

Consistent production quality offered by the FF30 capping system is unmatched by manual or semi-automatic systems.  Depending on viscosity, fill volume and container size, bottles can be filled at speeds of up to 1,200 fills per hour.  Liquids can be filled in volumes from 0.1 ml to 100 ml., and creams can be filled in volumes from 10 ml to 5,000 ml with accuracy better than +/-1% at flows from 500 to 8,000 ml/min. depending upon viscosity.

Bottles sizes up to 50 mm in heights up to 110 mm with cap diameters up to 50 mm and cap heights up to 40 mm can be accommodated.
