Aug 19, 2011

SAN CLEMENTE, CA. August 11, 2011 – Pacific Packaging Machinery Inc, the leader in high-speed rotary volumetric liquid packaging fillers, today announced that they will introduce their new 18-Station Rotary Volumetric Timed-Pressure-Flow Filling Machine at the 2011 Pack Expo Las Vegas Show taking place on September 26th – 28th. They will be exhibiting in booth # C-3217

Pacific will be demonstrating an exclusively designed 18-Station Rotary Volumetric Filling Machine supporting personal care products with low to medium foaming characteristics that fills 1 to 16 ounce containers at speeds of 150 to 200 containers per minute.

The line has been purchased by Apex International Manufacturing, Inc. to support their growth in cosmetic and OTC contract manufacturing. As quoted by Greg Poirier, Vice President of Operations at APEX International, “We made the decision to purchase from Pacific Packaging because of the proven technology demonstrated with our similar filler installed in 2009. With this new critical application, we are confident that their filler will complete the job with complete accuracy”.

The filling system offers filling accuracy of ± ½% (8 to 32-ounce) to 1% (1 to 4-ounce) during continuous operation for shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion and like viscosity products. The filling system is arranged with self-draining components and special filling nozzles that offer CIP/SIP capabilities. In addition to the exceptional filling accuracy and minimal clean-in-place capabilities, the equipment also offers no-bottle/no-fill, quick-change/tool-less changeover parts and a durable, all stainless steel construction.
