There are two main reasons for removing the filling turret top plate. The first is to periodically inspect the plates for cleanliness as part of your cleaning or sanitation process. The second is for infrequent reconditioning of the filling turret Teflon top plate.
In the event removal of your top plate is required, it is important to follow the recommended steps in order to eliminate the risk of permanently damaging the filling turret:
Important Note: Do not lift off the top plate too fast and try to keep the plate level. If the plate is tilted at an angle, damage to the o-rings and the top plate center bore can occur.
Finally, always remember to think safety first. Taking your time and following the recommend procedure will avoid operator injury in addition to costly damage to the filling system.
