Manual filling/capping machine for spouted pouches

Semi-automatic spouted Doypack dosing and capping machine

This semi-automatic pneumatic dosing machine is perfect for the filling and capping of Doypack pouches (with an existing spout).

The dosing range can vary from either 5 to 260 ml, 20 to 680 ml, 50 to 1300 ml 200 to 5000 ml The machine can also fill viscous products containing products particles and can be used for products requiring a hot-fill process.

The machine can be used to fill liquid or semi-liquid products. The capper closes the plastic screw caps of the flexible pouches. The cap is tightened by a pneumatic motor with a torque wrench.

Functioning

The operator places the Doypack pouch inside the stainless steel fork. The quantity of product to be filled by the volumetric dosing machine is determined by the handle placed below the work station. The suction speed and product dosing rate can be adjusted according to the specifications of the operator and the product to be dosed. The fill valve goes into operating position by manually moving the lever: the operator simply has to press a button in order to start the filling operation. When the machine has finished filling the pouch, it can inject nitrogen into the doypack (if required) to prolong the shelf life of the product and safeguard its organoleptic properties. Nitrogen injection and nitrogen flow rate are adjustable through the pressure regulator. Subsequently the agent has to place the cap on the nozzle and place the closure head in the capping position. Once done, the operator has to lower the lever again and simultaneously press the button for the cap to screwed on the neck of the bag.
