MILWAUKEE, Wis. — Federal Mfg., powered by ProMach, is demonstrating the breadth of its technical capabilities by featuring at Pack Expo two very different types of solutions: Net weight filling technology for rapidly and accurately filling high viscosity, free-flowing liquids and a sanitary level filler for dairy and juice products.

The innovative Federal net weight single station demonstration filler on display at the show is designed to fill a wide range of products and sizes. Federal net weight filling technology can be used for packaging petroleum products, agricultural chemicals, food, edible oils, extracts, sauces, dairy, juice, and pharmaceuticals.

Federal net weight fillers use damped load cells with overload protection, which significantly reduces or eliminates the effects of vibration and initial fill shock. High speed analog and digital electronics allow each station to be filled by weight or time. These machines are constructed with heavy-duty stainless steel frames designed for years of service. Explosion proof options are available. The Federal control system ensures optimum filling. Ethernet connectivity provides high speed communications with PLCs and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). The overall design intent is high uptime, low waste, ease of use, and decades of service.

The 30-valve sanitary level filler at the show is capable of filling and capping 110 one-gallon HDPE containers of fresh milk or juice per minute. Federal sanitary level fillers are in use throughout the food and beverage industry, including edible oils, salsas, and sauces. This mid-size level filling system features E-Series electronic filling valves and interior-exterior clean-in-place (CIP) and sterilize-in-place (SIP) capabilities. The ASME certified filling bowl can be cleaned with either hot water or steam. Federal fillers are certified to display the 3-A symbol for sanitary design, construction, and materials.

“While the net weight and sanitary level filler machines are designed for totally different environments, visitors to the Federal booth will see that each machine sets a standard for fit, finish, craftsmanship, and ruggedness that we feel is unequaled in today’s market,” said Mike Collins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Federal. “The other point to make is that when a customer works with Federal he or she can be assured that it will be a low-risk high-reward capital investment.”
