Case Study
Start-up contract packager

Objective
Entry level filling system for various cleanser products.

Problem
Start-up contract packager required a low cost, flexible filler that could grow as his production increased.

Solution
The PER-FIL® MF Micro-Filler is ideal for entry level filling. Our low-cost auger filler includes one set of tooling.  With a couple of additional tooling sets and an adjustable column, this contract packager was filling and shipping product within 1 week, and within 6 months added a conveyor to automate his filling operation.


Case Study
Lava lamps

Objective
Fill glitter into Lava lamps.

Problem
The odd shape of the customer’s Lava Lamps created a container handling challenge, while the glitter was so light and carried a static charge that it would float in the air and go everywhere EXCEPT inside the lamp.

Solution
PER-FIL® Model Micro-23 Automatic Auger Filler with feedscrew container indexing system ensured precise container handling of customer’s Lava Lamps.  Installing two SIMCO static eliminator nozzles at the fill position dissipates the static charge and raising the Lava Lamp at the fill position, so that the auger tooling is inserted into the opening of the lamp, ensuring the product is filled into the lamp.


Case Study
Carpet cleaner product

Objective
High speed filling of carpet cleaner and deodorizer product into fiberboard containers at rates of 100 cpm.

Problem

Solution

Case Study
Glazing Compound

Objective
To fill wood dough and glazing compound into 1/2 pint, pint, quart and gallon containers.

Problem
Glazing Compound is extremely viscous (1,500,000 cps) and flammable.  Multiple container sizes required changeover of filler, lid dropper and closer in less than 2 hours.

Solution
PER-FIL® supplied our Model PF-23H Single Head Automatic Inline Auger Filler utilizing Hydraulic Drive Motor.  The auger filling equipment was manufactured to meet Class 1, Division 1 explosion proof specifications and featured”submarine” gauges on the control box.  Hand knobs and hand wheels were used to speed up product changeovers.


Case Study
High speed fill of septic tank cleaner

Objective
Fill septic tank cleaner into containers at 100 cpm or faster.

Problem
D-handle containers featured a small neck opening (less than 1″) and 1 lb fill size limits the options for high speed filling.  Customer is a contract packager and needs a filling system that can be flexible – today it is septic tank cleaner, 3 months from now it could be detergent or dishwasher soap.

Solution
PER-FIL® designed a 12 station ROTARY CONTINUOUS MOTION FILLING SYSTEM equipped with ORBITAL FUNNEL VIBRATION to speed up the product flow; VACUUM ASSIST to compact product; and BOTTOM RAIL TAMPING to settle product in the container.  Tri-clover disconnects on the 12 funnel nozzles and hand knobs for the container handling parts, make changeover for future products and containers a breeze!
