Fogg Filler has introduced a semi-automatic, one-way recovery trough system for its smallest fillers, the model F4.1. This feature was previously offered on larger machines. The new product has been created to make cleaning the filler faster, easier and more cost effective.
In most cases, by simply touching a button, an operator can clean the machine in place without adding or removing any hardware. This enables a processor to increase the amount of bottles filled and decrease cleaning time, labor costs and operator contact with filling valves. The recovery system also reclaims product in a sanitary manner that enables it to be reused instead of letting it go to waste, the company states.
