In this product category, the most common viscous products include mayonnaise, margarine, peanut butter and spreads — or any product that does not flow easily.
Where higher production speeds are required, Pacific’s timed-orifice viscous rotary filler has also become an industry standard solution. The proven design was originated when the company was founded in 1962. Today it remains our most simple yet accurate filling system.
The keys to filling viscous products are (1) being able to move the product easily with consistency, (2) being able to maintain a low pressure operation throughout the filling system, and (3) placing the product into the jar without aeration pockets.
Pacific solves these design challenges by integrating a CIP’able positive displacement pump that operates at constant speed with our rotary timed orifice. The timed-orifice manifold is custom designed to maintain low pressure flows to our bottom-up fill nozzles. The nozzle technology is also custom designed for special flow rates in conjunction with the camming system that guarantees the container is always in the proper position relative to the product flow.
Versatile and flexible, Pacific’s viscous fillers are customized to accommodate a wide range of filling systems. Each custom designed machine accurately fills various container sizes across a range of speeds, with minimal changeover time.
For slower speed requirements, we also provide inline and drum filling machines that utilize volumetric, flow meter or net weight filling technology.
Regardless of whether an inline or rotary filler is best for your production speed, we arrange the filling machine with our bottom-up fill, open tube nozzles. There may be cases where you also want to run semi-viscous products on the same filler. If so, we can also arrange the bottom-up fill nozzles with a positive shutoff valve to provide drip control.
All of our food filling systems are constructed from 316SS and other FDA, USDA and Diary 3A approved materials. The filling machine easily cleans-in-place and can be combined with our external cleaning system to provide high levels of repeatable cleanliness.
