Capper handles non-conventional caps
July 28, 2011
Fogg Filler, manufacturer of rotary filling systems for the liquids industry, released its new articulating jaw capper that can be retrofitted to previous Fogg fillers.
Fogg’s ability to provide a monobloc filler and capper with an articulating jaw capper has just been made easier. In the past, Fogg would accomplish this by integrating a third party’s capper. Now, with Fogg’s new design, manufacturers can enjoy a single source for filling and capping solutions. This change will make overall start up and commissioning much more cost effective.
The Fogg articulating jaw capper has been designed to handle non-conventional caps. The design parameters are based on 12 years of proven Pick-N-Place capping performance. It is lubrication free to reduce the possibility for product contamination and keep maintenance to a minimum. The spindles can be quickly and easily removed when planned maintenance and/or rebuilds are necessary. The service life is approximately 8,000 – 10,000 hours between overhauls.
