“On smaller press days I do it myself now. Or, if I have someone else helping I can step away and deal with other issues at the farm,” he says. “It takes about half the time now with the new press, and with two people vs. five. A 4,000-liter press takes us 6 hours with cleanup vs. almost 12 before.” -Andrew Hefele of Twisted Roots Cider
For the 8 Head Gravity Filler:
- Based on the fill-to-level principle
- Model GO-8 delivers a quantity of flow-able liquid into the container until it reaches an adjustable fill height
- 6" touchscreen allows for the fine tuning of all manual and automatic functions
- This includes a functionality for saved recipes for a variety of packages and supports cleaning protocol through full manual control of each device
- 8" centralized stainless steel main conveyor is included with variable speed control and super-clean conveyor ends for quick and simple transitions
With the 8 Head Gravity Filler, it is ideal for a large assortment of product and container types. The Model GO-8 Gravity Filler begins with eight 316 SS mechanical filling nozzles mounted for the complete adjustment to bottle sizes ranging up to 3½" diameter. Pneumatic escapement gates regulate the containers while neck guides manage the container opening. Automatic level control using ultrasound sensors provide the product level (and thus fill time) are carefully controlled in both the product and overflow tank.
A stainless drip tray warrants clean transitions between containers. A modular built-in 42" Feed Table and conveyor ends bolt onto the main filling conveyor to ensure precision and accuracy throughout.
The integrated container rinser can be added to the infeed to wash containers before filling. Alternatively, an air cleaner can be installed to the infeed to wash out containers with air.
