Aerosol Fillers for Automotive Lubricants, Cleaners, Paints and other Sprays

Accommodating the full range of light and foamy to semi-viscous automotive aerosol products requires a versatile liquid filler, which is why Pacific is the choice of numerous leading automotive manufacturers and contract packagers required to fill aerosol cans with products such as cleaners, lubricants, and paints.

For this application class with higher production speeds, Pacific’s timed-orifice rotary filling machine provides the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of product viscosities and container sizes. The flexibility in Pacific’s rotary liquid filler is a result of our Variable Rate of Product Flow manifold that is standard on our timed-orifice arrangement. As with every Pacific filler, we do not comprise accuracy which is critical for automotive products that are typically quite expensive. Many times, the accuracy savings alone over your current filling system will justify the project return on investment.

If your high-speed application does not include a wide viscosity range and accuracy is the most critical requirement, our flow meter filling machine is a proven solution with excellent performance. Note that while the flow meter-based systems are extremely accurate, they cannot be arranged with our Variable Rate of Flow system. Our flow meter-based systems, therefore, do not offer the same price performance per station that comes with the timed-orifice solution.

For slower speed requirements, we also provide inline machines that utilize volumetric pump or flow meter filling technology.

Our patented top fill nozzles with displacement style automatic shutoff valve or diving nozzle with Laminar flow screen at the point of discharge provide accuracy and good production capacity on non-foamy liquids. Many of our customers also want to fill foamy products such as windshield washer fluid or diesel additives on the same filling machine. If this is a current or future requirement, we can arrange the filling system with our bottom-up fill, positive shutoff nozzles. The bottom-up fill nozzle arrangement offers increased production on fewer stations compared to competing fillers.

For applications where zero drip is required, we incorporate a nozzle-based vacuum system into both our top fill and bottom-up fill nozzles.

All of our filling systems are constructed from 304SS. Options include 316 and titanium stainless steel filling systems and arrangements for hazardous explosion-proof environments. The filling machine is designed for Clean-in-Place washing and requires minimal maintenance.

Light to Semi-Viscous Filling Fillers for Automotive Lubricants, Oils, Additives and more

Accommodating the full range of light to semi-viscous automotive products requires a versatile liquid filler, which is why Pacific is the choice of numerous leading automotive manufacturers and contract packagers required to fill foamy additives and windshield wiper fluids to heavy oils and transmission fluids.

For this application class with higher production speeds, Pacific’s timed-orifice rotary filling machine provides the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of product viscosities and container sizes. The flexibility in Pacific’s rotary liquid filler is a result of our Variable Rate of Product Flow manifold that is standard on our timed-orifice arrangement.

Our flow meter-based systems, therefore, do not offer the same price performance per station that comes with the timed-orifice solution.

For slower speed requirements, we also provide inline and drum filling machines that utilize volumetric or flow meter filling technology.

Our patented top fill nozzles with displacement style automatic shutoff valves provide accuracy and good production capacity on non-foamy liquids. Many of our customers also want to fill foamy products such as windshield washer fluid or diesel additives on the same filling machine.

Viscous filling: supplying time-orifice viscous rotary filling which is the ideal solution for major manufacturers.

The most common viscous automotive products include grease, wax and hand cleaners.

Where higher production speeds are required, Pacific’s timed-orifice viscous rotary filler is the ideal solution with installations at major manufacturers such as Exxon-Mobil, Citgo Petroleum, and BG Products, to name a few. The proven design 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 positive displacement pump that operates at a 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 proper position relative to the product flow.

Versatile and flexible, Pacific’s viscous fillers are customized to accommodate a wide range of filling systems designed to accurately fill 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 pump or flow meter filling technology.

Regardless of whether an inline or rotary filler is best for your production speeds, we arrange the filling machine with our bottom-up fill open flow nozzles. Our viscous fillers do not require a supply tank and the pump can be directly fed from your supply system. Special bypass and load balancing systems are incorporated into each pump to facilitate constant flow.

All of our automotive filling systems are constructed from 304SS materials. The filling machine is designed for Clean-in-Place washing and can be arranged for a hazardous explosion-proof environment if necessary.
