How does the Alfa Laval Astepo grande filler work?
The Astepo grande filler system uncaps, fills and caps bags with capacities of 2–20 litres, with a filling accuracy of ±0.5%. Input capacities are up to 700 bags per hour, depending on the bag size selected. The system uses web bags with front-mounted caps. A soft horizontal knife protects the film from micro-perforation and separates the bags. A pneumatic system automatically feeds the bags to the filling head.
A pneumatic cylinder synchronizes with the cap removal clamps with the filling valve to ensure rapid changeover and easy adjustment. Fitting an optional mass flow meter helps ensure extremely accurate filling.
Special configurations are available with a pre-filling vacuum, a post-filling nitrogen puff, or a HEPA filter over the filling area.
