Exclusive Features


FOF-manifold-sections

Built-in Capacity Expandability

Modular components (infeed and outfeed manifolds, tubing and nozzles) allow the operator to expand capacity in the field without a service call. The system can be expanded from 4 to 16 filling heads. Manifolds built to 3A sanitary standards for cleanability.

Multistage Filling

As part of each product’s filling profile, the filler’s powerful PLC can be programmed to run the pump’s filling cycle in 3 sequential stages: slower initial stage to reduce foam creation, faster second stage for a speedier fill, and dwell final stage (pump off) to allow container depressurization and circulation of foam back to the product or surge tank.


FOF-manifold-sections

Upgradeable to Fully Automatic!

The semi automatic filler can be upgraded to fully automatic at any time in the future without a service call. Our conveyor and an interface box plugs directly into the existing control box for an instant upgrade! Upgraded filler to the right is shown with optional turntables and semi automatic capping machine.

Surge (Overflow) Tank Options

A surge (overflow) tank is necessary for normal operation of the overflow filling machine. However, in many low volume operations, it is possible to fill direct from drums or by using inexpensive plastic containers that comply with the maximum height restriction of 36″ distance from floor.
