How to best maintain your Response Benchtop Filler
July 20, 2021
Tips and tricks to improve productivity and increase the service life of your machine
by Dean Willis, Product Expert and Sales Director – Adelphi Manufacturing
Top Tip #1 – Improving Fill Consistency
“I recommend reviewing your machine every 12 months, to ensure your productivity is not being compromised by easily avoidable factors.
For example, you may be noticing…
- Visually varying fill levels
- Inconsistency in fill weights
- Air pockets
These are quickly and easily correct by…
- Replacing your piston cups to improve accuracy
- Once you receive your new piston cups, ensure that you always wash them separately from the metal machine components, to increase their useage life
- I also recommend leaving non-stainless steel components out of the machine overnight or during production downtime, so they retain their optimum shape
Dean increased production from 14 to 25 containers per minute, in less than 1 hour.
The machine has been in place since 2005, and is running as good as new!
