Fogg Filler Co.: Improved liquid filler
Fogg Filler has introduced the F6.2 model filler, which features improvements designed to increase both uptime and fill cleanliness.
Filler’s base is now sloped along the long axis, removing drain ports from the filling environment for increased sanitation. All-stainless-steel construction is available as an option. Safety guarding is now flush-mounted and includes a lower skirt to prevent access to rotating parts under the machine. A new spindle/hub design on the starwheels allows for quick, easy removal of the clutch while leaving the gears/sprockets engaged. Design also allows for independent adjustment of the taper bearings and positive clamping of the clutch. Other changes include a clutched bowl, and infeed screw now driven by a u-joint to reduce the number of wear parts. Designs may be retrofitted to older machines, as well.
