Jar Filling Line

Description

Item # 8494 - JAR FILLING LINE

for filling chutney, cooking sauces, pastes, marinades, etc in various different jar sizes for supermarkets. The plant is capable of handling and filling various different sizes of jars and different volumes as well.

The plant is capable of producing 2000 to 3000 jars per house depending on the size of the jar and the filling volume.

The jars are loaded on an eight lane conveyor, from there jars are picked and air blown inside to clean any foreign body inside, depositor fills the jar and forwards it to the capper where the steam in injected to sterilize the top void and twist cap is applied. Once the cap is applied the conveyor moves the filled and capped jars in the pasteurising tunnel. The tunnel works in two stages, initially it raises the temperature to sterilize the entire product in the jar and then it is cooled to room temperature. Once the product is out of the pasteurising tunnel, it goes through a hot air blowing tunnel to dry the jar and make it ready to apply the label.

Volumes of 190ml up to 700ml were made with this line (details of the jars and caps are included with the photos)
