Video from Spee-Dee shows pneumatic-over-hydraulic lift design that uses air for a rapid lift and hydraulic damping for a controlled lower as the auger fills the container from the bottom up. Lift height is controlled electronically. A pneumatic container gripper is adjustable for different size bottles.
Video from Spee-Dee demonstrates multi-lane, multi-auger in-line filling system that achieves high speeds without sacrificing floor space. Timing screws rapidly orient rigid containers into two lanes, where they are efficiently filled at a combined rate of 120/minute by a pair of Spee-Dee® servo auger fillers, and recombined into a single lane.
Spee-Dee's Rotary Auger Filler is designed to accurately fill a broad cross section of products, such as spices, non-dairy creamers, coffee and cornstarch, into a variety of bottles and other rigid containers at rates of 100 to 400 units per minute.
White paper from Spee Dee discusses the application of servo controls and a new innovative funnel design to rotary auger fillers for free-flowing and non-free flowing applications. Benefits include dramatic reductions in changeover time and increased efficiencies.
