GS – Automatic rotating filling machine by Volume
0. Description of the basic machine
Series of filling machines suitable for any kind of liquid product, in rigid containers, within the range from 0,1 lt to 5 lts.
Fully pneumatic operated.
Pneumatic or PLC control, suitable for dangerous area, on request.
The machines of this family are identified with the mark, GS, N°T, XX where:
GS, series of automatic rotating fillers by volume.
N°T, number of filling heads.
XX, (2,5 – 5) this number corresponds to the Max volume by a single stroke.
1. Connections to the power nets:
a. The machine is operated by compressed air at 6 Bar (minimum pressure for a reliable running: 5 Bar)
b. The machines equipped with conveyors and/or other complementary devices need to be fed by electric power, as well, at 380V – 50 Hz except for specific request.
c. Product to be packed, from feeding net, or by gravity from a tank, or by pump.
d. Washing-rinsing product, if available
2. Machine configuration
Further to the filling head(s), the machine is normally completed with some complementary devices:
Empty containers feeding system.
Container orientation with reference to the excentric filling hole, or to the handle, or for marking-labelling in a proper area.
Closing devices: by pressing, screwing, crimping.
Furthermore the filling machine could be just part of a complete packing line that goes from the pallet of empty container up to the final pallet of the packed product.
3. Preliminary adjustments
a. To adjust the height from the working plane of each operating device (filling head, cover dispenser, press, etc).
These operations, on request, can be automated.
b. To adjust the passage width for the containers, on the machine working plane and up and down stream conveyors, and to install, (or replace) the proper polizene star for the can handling.
The operation, on request, can be automated.
c. Volume adjustment
To unlock the handle on the graduated ruler.
By hand-wheel to adjust the volume moving the pointer on the wanted position of the ruler.
The more careful adjustment of the theorical volume will be done, after the first 2 or 3 containers, by the use of the counter.
It is suggestable to start in “Manual” mode, for passing to the “Automatic” mode, only after to have checked the right weight of the first 4÷5 containers and the perfect result of all the operations done by the devices installed, and if the case, by all the machines of the line.
NOTE: detailed information and instructions on the machine, on the adjustment, use, maintenance, and spares parts, are available on the handbook supplied with the machine
