Press Release - 3A Certified Auger Filler


Countryside, IL (USA). July, 2009.

Expanding on its product solutions for dispensing powders, granulars, and flakes, Nalbach Engineering Company announces the release of a new auger filling system that is inspected and certified to comply with the USDA 3A sanitary standard. This system employs a domed hopper to optimize drainage during cleaning, sanitary pipe clamps and gaskets, polished product contact surfaces, and welded to comply with 3A standards. Additionally, the system includes the ability to make auger tooling adjustments without the need to remove the hopper, as well as sanitary inspection and tooling access ports for ease of operation and maintenance.

Many suppliers “build” to 3A specification, but do not include certification. This requires the end-user to get the system inspected and certified themselves after it is installed. The Nalbach system is built, inspected and certified at the factory to comply with the USDA 3A specification eliminating any guesswork at time of installation and start-up.

The filler’s control panel performs all set-up and operation of the entire system. This “HMI” panel is an intuitive, icon-based, graphical user interface with touch screen and comes standard with allNalbach Servo Driven Auger Fillers. This powerful controller provides a single point of operator control for the entire system making training, set-up and operation simple and straightforward.

Nalbach’s servo driven auger fillers incorporate PLC controlled brushless, direct drive, servo motor systems providing superior fill accuracy and reliability while dramatically reducing mechanical failures and downtime by eliminating most moving parts.

All Nalbach auger filling systems feature self centering tooling resulting in faster changeovers and cleaning times, stainless steel product contact parts and aluminum structural parts for exceptional durability, an empty hopper function for quick product changeovers, “Smart Agitator” technology to extend agitator life, product memory capable of storing filling parameters for up to 60 SKUs with one button recall, and weight set-up software that quickly, easily and automatically sets-up fill parameters.

This exciting new product is available worldwide through Nalbach’s direct sales and manufacturers reps.
