- Bottle filling machine parts are crucial components of a successful automatic bottle filling machine.
- You need bottle filling machine parts at your facility to mitigate costly downtime and operation disruptions.
- Replacement slats and manifolds help maintain accuracy and speed and prevent downtime.
- Along with slat and manifold change parts, you also need slat chains, brushes, brush combs, and other additional bottle filling machine parts to prevent production downtime and ensure quick turnarounds.
Explaining Automatic Bottle Filling Machines
Automatic bottle filling machines count a predetermined amount of tablets or capsules and fill bottles with the proper product amount efficiently and accurately. There are a few key equipment features to consider to help you determine if your machine is doing its job successfully.
Think about your machine’s:
- Filling speed
- Alignments and adjustment points
Efficient automatic bottle filling machines can operate at fast filling speeds, typically filling 100-count bottles at 300 bottles per minute. A high-performance bottle filler also has an open design that allows operators access to the machine for seamless cleaning, inspection, and maintenance processes. Many automatic bottle filling machines are also designed with a chain and slat guide that decreases the system’s number of discrete filler parts to minimize cleaning time and prevent multiple alignments and adjustment points.
Bottle filling machine parts are also significant components of a successful automatic bottle filling machine. Let’s explore the different types of filler parts and how they work together to create a successful bottle-filling line.
Why You Need Bottle Filling Machine Parts
You need bottle filling machine parts on-hand to mitigate costly downtime and operation disruptions during the bottle-filling process. Change parts like slats and manifolds help optimize your bottle filling process. There are a variety of replacement parts available on the market, compatible with every bottle filling machine make and model.
Types of Bottle Filling Machine Parts
Bottle filling machine parts, like slat and manifold replacements, help maintain accuracy and speed and prevent downtime. Let’s take a look at the importance of slats, manifolds, and other bottle filling machine parts to give you an understanding of how you can maintain a successful bottle-filling operation.
Additional Bottle Filling Machine Parts
Along with slat and manifold change parts, you also need additional bottle filling machine parts to keep your line running smoothly:
- Slat Chains
- Brush Combs
- Slat Guides
- Chain Guides
- Feed Screws
Keeping multiple sets of each part can help prevent production downtime and ensure quick turnarounds.
High-quality bottle filling manifolds aren’t created equal, but with the right manifold replacements, you can maintain your equipment’s high-performance level.
Manifolds direct the tablets into the bottle accurately and efficiently. Every slat filler is manufactured with upper and lower manifolds to make sure the bottle is filled properly and quickly. Customized manifolds with unique builds are available to take your good manufacturing practices (GMP) to the next level. Investing in EF series manifolds, or Extended Fill Lower Manifold Designs, can help you reduce cleaning and maintenance times and improve product flow and durability. Many manufacturers can provide upper and lower bottle-filling manifolds for any slat filling machine you have.
Slat fillers have been used on bottle filling lines since the beginning of pharmaceutical packaging. Their plastic bars, or slats, count tablets into the bottle. Manufactured with cavities tailored to the tablet’s shape, slat fillers operate at fast speeds, typically filling 100-count bottles at 300 bottles per minute. To keep up this momentum, it’s crucial to stock up on replacement slats custom tailored to work with your automatic bottle filling machine. Manufacturers can copy your existing designs or create new cavities for your tablets if you don’t have a set that fills accurately.
At Ascend Packaging Systems, we invest in raw materials to manufacture premier bottle filling machine parts that work with your existing machinery.
Change Part Carts: A Modern Parts Storage Solution
Since it’s crucial to keep bottle filling machine parts that work with your existing equipment on hand to prevent downtime, you need a storage solution that keeps your bottling line moving along efficiently and smoothly. Companies used to store filler change parts in massive storage spaces dedicated to housing replacement slats and manifolds—but those days are long gone, thanks to change part carts, the industry’s modern parts storage solution. Change part carts are an essential tool for improving changeover efficiency and assisting with part transportation to and from washing stations.
At Ascend Packaging, our team of experts designs and manufactures change part carts for all models and sizes of slat fillers. The materials we use are FDA-approved, and our standard cart design is equipped to store one set of slats, an upper and lower manifold, and an upper and lower brush. We can also customize a parts cart to fit your specific storage needs by designing and manufacturing a cart using specific factors, such as your preferred dimensions, number of shelves, materials, and door style.
