Overflow Filling Machine Selection Guide

How It Works:
The supply side (dark blue) of a two part nozzzle is used to pump product into the container. When the container fills up to the target fill height, the excess product and foam is forced out of the container (red arrows) via the return side to the original product source tank.

how overflow filling machine works

Application:
This type of filler is best suited for liquids with low to medium viscosity. liquids with solid particulates not exceeding 1/16″ can also be filled. Note that overflow fillers are the machine of choice in handling very foamy products at higher speeds.

Examples:
Sauces, syrups, light gels and shampoos, foamy cleansers and chemicals, water and other non carbonated aqueous beverages.

Advantages:
High performance, easy to clean, easy to operate, expandable at low cost. Offers greatest flexibility at lowest cost,

automatic overflow fillerModel FOFBT-A Automatic Overflow Filler
For Low Automatic Production of < 6000 Containers per Day

    • Fully automatic filling machine configured for maximum 4 filling nozzles; Operator needed only for loading bottles.
    • Bottle management and filling sequence is electronically controlled entirely by the filling machine.
    • Economy priced fully automatic machine with excellent output but frame design limits ability to expand capacity in the future.

 

 


FOF-BENCHTOP_4Model FOFSEMI NT UG Upgradeable Semiauto Overflow Filler
For Intermediate Auto Production of < 10,000 Containers per Day

    • Semi Automatic machine is upgraded to fully automatic operation; Operator needed only for loading bottles.
    • Bottle management and filling sequence is electronically controlled entirely by the filling machine.
    • Economy priced fully automatic machine with excellent output but limited ability to expand capacity in the future.

 

 


FOF-BENCHTOP_4Model FOFNT36 Automatic High Performance Overflow Filler
For High Performance Auto Production of ~ 60000 Containers per Day

    • Top of the line small frame base machine used for smaller bottle sizes. System allows for maximum ability to expand capacity in the future.
    • Bottle management and filling sequence is electronically controlled entirely by the filling machine.
    • Sophisticated bottle management and error controls allow sustained high speed operation.

 

 


FOF-BENCHTOP_4Model FOFNT48 Automatic High Performance Overflow Filler
High Performance Auto Production of ~ 60000 Containers per Day
