Piston Fillers

Lucas Electronics has been engineered to provide an economical and convenient way for filling small & large production runs of today?s thick or thin liquid products with high accuracy. These machines are pneumatically and digitally controlled volumetric piston filler and it needs compressed air. In some applications where the product being filled is slightly viscous, a certain amount of pressure must be applied to get it moving.

In these applications, the filling machine might be classed as a positive-displacement filling machine instead of a volumetric filling machine. These machines are manufactured with single or multiple filling heads, and they can be used manual as well as automatic operations. Each machine is also equipped with an adjustable piston stroke to permit a single unit to fill variable amounts of product.

During operation, product is drawn into the piston cylinder head. As the piston reverses its travel, liquid product is discharged from the cylinder to into the container. If it is mechanical then the piston is driven by an eccentric crank connected to the driven shaft of the motor or speed reducer. The crank or piston rod is slotted to allow the piston stroke to be adjusted as required.

A filled container can then be moved along manually or integrated with conveyor. These processes can be repeated cycles can be performed to fill volumes that are higher than the cylinder capacity.

Our Volumetric Piston Fillers are used by industries in the Food & Beverage, Cosmetics, and Personal Care, Agricultural, Animal Care, Pharmaceutical, and Chemical fields.
