Filling Machine for the Petroleum,
Lubricant and Oil Industry
Filling machines for the oil and lube business are the same as those used to fill liquid soaps. Depending on the range of viscosities of the producer's product line, a piston filling machines is generally used. A product line that includes heavy greases would definitely use a piston filler. A product line that only fills lighter motor oils can be filled in both an overflow filling machine as well as the servo pump machine. Because these products are sold volumetrically, the overflow filling machine is used infrequently. Although the piston filler is a more common machine in this industry, the servo pump filling machine has found increasing favor because petroleum based oils volumes vary significantly with ambient filling temperature and piston fillers require more adjustments in this regard.
Overflow Filling Machine for products where a specific visible fill height is required.
Servo Positive Displacement Filling Machine for high accuracy and frequent changeovers between products and fill sizes.
Piston Filling Machine for applications with few fill sizes or product changeovers.
