Filling and Closing

More than 50% of the world’s shelf-stable foods are filled, closed, or sterilized in JBT FoodTech equipment. Since 1909 when Bean Spray Pump Company first introduced the 12-Spout Syruper to the canning process, JBT FoodTech has led the food filling and closing industry. Over 4,000 fillers and closers have been installed worldwide through the years.

Since 1909 when Bean Spray Pump Company first introduced the 12-Spout Syruper to the canning process, JBT FoodTech has led the food filling and closing industry. Over 4,000 fillers and closers have been installed worldwide through the years.

Today, a new generation of JBT FoodTech filling and closing equipment is matching food processor’s needs for higher productivity, reliability, sanitation, flexibility and safety. From its locations in Madera, California and Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, JBT FoodTech manufactures a variety of filling and closing systems.

Our XL-Series of granular, piston and vacuum fillers can handle metal, glass, plastic or paperboard containers and are suitable to fill a broad range of food products, from liquid to highly viscous or granulates. The heavy duty and precise construction of the XL-Series Unifiller ensures unsurpassed fill accuracy. The XL-Series Unifiller is the only piston filler in the industry that can be cleaned-in-place without fill station disassembly and is the first volumetric filler in the industry to successfully pass the EHEDG CIP screening test and obtain the 3A sanitary standards symbol authority.

The state-of-the-art SeamTec™ closing machines are capable of double seaming small and large cylindrical containers at speeds ranging from 50 to 1,200 cans per minute. Over the years, JBT FoodTech has built and utilized a wealth of seaming engineering know-how, supported by high-tech laboratory analysis and testing, to create many innovative, cost-effective seaming solutions.

With the introduction of TwinTec™, JBT FoodTech is the first in the industry to integrate the filling and seaming operation in a single, small footprint machine with one sanitary base, one control system, one drive, one lubrication system, and one guarding with integrated cable trunking.
