The JBT PLF International Virtus linear vacuum filler is designed specifically to handle a wide range of milk-based nutritional powders, including infant formula and specialized medical nutrition.

Developed by PLF’s team in the UK, the Virtus incorporates a new, patent-pending nozzle design that delivers up to three times higher throughput per head than previous machines, which greatly reduces changeover and cleaning times, maximizes yield, and reduces operational costs. The new range will be offered in one-, two-, three-, four-, and six-head models, and run at speeds up to 180 cans per min with configurable options.

Compared to auger filling systems, PLF’s vacuum filling system has no moving parts in contact with the product, which eliminates any risk of product contamination, as well as the possibility of powder breakdown during filling.

“For nearly three decades, PLF International has been on a journey to meet the demands of the modern infant formula producers by simplifying our technology and reducing operational costs while maintaining the high quality and benefits of our vacuum filling technology,” says Carlos Fernandez, executive vice president of JBT and President, diversified food and health. “We are thrilled to offer the cutting-edge PLF Virtus and expand on our commitment to provide the safest and most effective technology to our customers, ultimately providing the best possible products to the end consumer.”
