Filling system with pipe metal detector

Requirement

Our customer, a spice manufacturer, needed a space-saving solution that would implement both a filling process and an inspection solution. The aim was to find a solution that would work efficiently with the raw materials.

Solution

We developed a combination solution of a filling system with a pipe metal detector that meets these requirements. This system is used for bulk products that flow well. Embedded in the existing piping systems, the combined system fills powders, granulates, fibres and chips, among other things, directly into the large or small containers. At the same time, it checks for the smallest magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminants. Separation prior to filling guarantees gentle discharge of raw materials. The system can be adapted to containers such as sacks, big bags, etc. A weighing bridge for small containers that can be folded down into the working position provides special flexibility and can optionally be combined with an additional floor scale or drive-through scale for large containers.

The scale application maps the filling process and controls filling elements. When the fill level is reached, filling stops fully automatically. Manual filling is also possible. The exchange with higher-level systems enables complex recipes and changes to production orders at short notice, as well as reliable data management with complete logging and traceability.

Filling system with pipe metal detector

The advantages are:

  • Early, partial metal detection
  • This means that the previously filled container can continue to be used
  • Filling of large and small containers in one system
  • Fully automatic filling stop
  • Data exchange with higher-level system
