Valve innovation increases filling speeds up to 500%
July 16, 2012
Fogg Filler (www.foggfiller.com), a market leader in the design and manufacture of rotary filling systems for the liquids industry, is taking another step to heighten performance. Fogg proudly introduces their new, patented, Tri-Line® Quick Start valve.
The new Tri-Line Quick Start valve offers technology in which the speed of the equipment is only limited by the capability of the drive train and the capping technology. This innovation increases fill speeds by as much as 500%. The major speed gains are realized mostly with small bottles from 30 ml – 1 liter (1-32-ounces.)
Gravity filling has traditionally had a hesitation problem when filling smaller bottles. With this valve there is immediate filling action to increase production speeds. The applications are limitless for the Tri-Line Quick Start valve. Improvements can be seen for production of a variety of products, from alcohol to drinking yogurt.
