Adelphi sends another two filling lines to Nigeria
Masterfil has recently supplied two complete lube oil filling lines to an oil company in Nigeria who distribute lube oil across the world.
Each line consists of a labeller, Masterfil 8 head 5 litre filler with plc control and HMI interface, Mastercap single head indexing capper also plc controlled, complete with elevator/sorter and cap foil detection system and an induction sealer all linked using Masterfil conveyors.
The Masterfil 8 head 5 litre filler comes with a 450 litre tank and has a totally enclosed 304 stainless steel cabinet. The nozzles are programmed to dive and rise whilst filling and the automatic container handling system includes ‘no container, no fill’ sensing.
The filling heads offer a wide range of fill volumes and can handle low to high viscosity liquid. The nozzles are adjustable with multiple speed filling capacity and the 5 litre filling pumps are made from honed 316L stainless steel.
The Mastercap single head inline indexing capping machine incorporates a host of innovative features, providing a versatile, reliable capping operation at a maximum speed of up to 60 per minute, dependent on product, container and cap type. The capper comes equipped with an elevator cap feeder and with 304 stainless steel cladding as standard. Changeovers between cap styles and sizes are made quick and easy by innovative features including, push button height adjustment of capping heads, colour coded change parts and programmable control systems. All of these features allow the end user to minimize downtime, effectively allowing for greater production outputs.
The lines fill and cap 1 and 4 litre containers in different shapes running at speeds of up to 60 bottles per minute for 1 litre containers and 45 per minute for 4 litre containers.
