Principle

The operating principle of the XL-Series Unifiller is unique and illustrates many of its advantages.

The operation of the Unifiller consists of three typical filling phases:

  • Phase 1: suction phase

The valve port is open to the bowl and the piston moves upwards bringing the product into the cylinder.

  • Phase 2: filling phase

The valve port is closed to the bowl and open to the container. The piston moves downward and the product enters the container.

  • Phase 3: transition phase

The valve port is closed to the bowl and open to the container. The piston is at the bottom of the stroke and the container is filled. The valve port is then opened to the bowl and phase 1 is repeated.

Throughout the cycle the product path is always minimized allowing the Unifiller to achieve superior fill accuracy.
