HOPPER
PER-FIL® hoppers are rigidly mounted to the filler head plate and are pin located for convenient re-assembly after cleaning and changeover. The PER-FIL® hopper mounting provides precise positioning of the top rim and lower cone stand-off plate to assure that this vital component does not shift during operation or become misaligned after cleaning. All competitive auger systems locate the hopper on the lower flange only and rely on the hopper lid to position the top rim.
HOPPER CAPACITY
PER-FIL® Auger Filler hoppers are specified to standard, larger or smaller volume sizes to match the product’s condition and dose rates of the filler.  One size does NOT fit all.
ELECTRICAL CONTROLS
PER-FIL® auger fillers are equipped with a wide range of OFF-THE-SHELF electrical components. Each filler application is provided with a choice of control features and a selection of components to suit the specific needs of the customer. The customer determines the type of control system that best suits his needs. PER-FIL® controls easily integrate with other systems already in operation in the customers plant. Control components built into PER-FIL® filling systems are selected based on customers preference, quality, long service life and OFF-THE-SHELF availability anywhere in the world. We never remove a label and, when available, include purchase components’ instruction in the Instruction Manual provided with each PER-FIL® filler.

 

TOOLING
The PER-FIL® auger position and locking system accurately locates and locks the auger to the drive shaft. This design of positive auger mounting eliminates both auger wobble and the resulting wear of the auger and funnel. Competitive auger equipment allows the auger to shift and wobble resulting in frequent auger and funnel replacement, product damage, and contamination of the product with metal particulate from tooling.
AUGER DRIVE
PER-FIL® auger fillers feature a vertical or horizontal mounted main drive Servo motor or dynamic brake variable speed motor.  Servo and Dynamic Brake Motors achieve maintenance free performance and optimum accuracy.  They require no adjustments during their long service life.  No other auger filler equipment can match the PER-FIL auger drive system for available torque to the drive auger, speed of operation, or simplicity of maintenance.
SERVICE and SUPPORT
Each PER-FIL filler comes complete with a comprehensive instruction manual.  PER-FIL has a full-time in-house support staff to offer assistance via phone, fax, e-mail, or in-field service call.  PER-FIL® Industries’ Service and Spare Parts Team provides aftermarket support for all PER-FIL® filling equipment around the world.  Our Service technicians are available for installation, start-up, maintenance and repair support.  To keep your filler in top operating condition, PER-FIL® stocks 90% of all component parts for immediate shipment to your plant.  Additionally, PER-FIL’s engineering staff is available for service help.  Total customer satisfaction starts with quality products and our dedication to help anytime, anywhere.

FILLER AGITATION SYSTEMS

Agitation of the product in the filler hopper conditions and consistently feeds product into the auger flights to achieve optimum fill accuracy and dose rates.  PER-FIL® provides counter-rotational or oscillating sweep agitation system for single or multi-spindle auger fillers.

Common Options and Accessories

balance

PER-FIL® Auger Fillers feature Mettler-Toledo or other precision electronic Scales or Balances.  Scale will “tare out empty weight of container and stop auger when target fill weight is reached.

level probe 148x150

Hopper level probe for controlling customer’s bulk feeding system. One of the most critical factors to achieving consistent dose weights is controlling the level of product in the filler hopper. When the hopper level is controlled properly, it will ensure that the auger flights are consistently filled. When the auger flights are packed with product, the filler achieves and maintains optimum dose weights and high production rates.

bulk extension hopper 150x150

Hopper Extensions and Infeed Plenums.  PER-FIL® fillers can be equipped with custom designed hopper extensions or infeed plenums for convenient product loading and increased storage capacity.  Stainless steel construction with gasketed flanges and quick removal hardware.


lift station 150x150

Pneumatic actuated container lift stations are designed to raise containers so that the fill nozzle is inserted into the container opening for dust free product transfer into bottles, cartridges, bags, vials, boxes or drums. Additionally, lift stations can be used to compress both powders and pastes to eliminate air pockets and ensure product fits in the container.


Pneumatic actuated vibrator 150x150

Pneumatic vibrator added to container lift assembly to help settle product in the container.  Pneumatic or electric vibrators are used to settle product in rigid containers.  These vibration stations can be stand-alone on semi-automatic fillers or added to the container lift station.

pinned hopper 150x150

PER-FIL® hoppers are rigidly mounted to the filler head casting and are pin located for convenient re-assembly after cleaning and changeover. The PER-FIL® hopper mounting provides precise positioning of the top rim and lower cone stand-off plate to assure that this vital component does not shift during operation or become misaligned after cleaning. Competitive auger systems locate the hopper on the lower flange only and rely on the hopper lid to position the top rim.


auger position and locking system 150x150

The PER-FIL® auger position and locking system accurately locates and locks the auger to the drive shaft.  This design of positive auger mounting eliminates both auger wobble and the resulting wear of the auger and funnel. Competitive auger equipment allows the auger to shift and wobble resulting in frequent auger and funnel replacement, product damage, and contamination of the product with metal particles from the tooling.


controls 150x150

Electrical Controls built into PER-FIL® filling systems are selected based on customer preference, quality, long service life and OFF-THE-SHELF availability anywhere in the world. We never remove a label and, when available, include purchased components’ instructions in the Instruction Manual provided with each PER-FIL® filler.

platform

Adjustable Height Container Support Platform to support the container during the fill cycle.  Allows for quick changeover for filling different size containers.
