INTEGRATED FILLING STATION INSURES CONSISTENT AND ACCURATE FILLING OPERATIONS        


Countryside, IL (USA). February, 2003.


Augmenting its line of Servo Driven Auger and Cup Fillers, Nalbach Engineering Company announces the release of a brand new integrated filling station, the Model ICS-8.

The ICS-8 is an Indexing Conveyor with Product Settling System that combined with Nalbach’s line of Servo Driven Auger and Cup Fillers is a complete, integrated, filling station, ideal for the consistent and accurate dispensing of a broad range of powders, granulars, flakes and other free-flowing products.

The Indexing Conveyor comes standard with an 8' long conveyor, adjustable guide rails, stainless steel construction, variable speed drive, and air-operated container stops for indexing and positioning of containers under the Filler.

The Product Settling System includes a section of split chain conveyor at the vibration station and an air-operated system that raises the container away from the conveyor prior to initiation of the vibration mode. The vibration mode starts as the Filler begins dispensing product and insures a consistent and accurate fill each and every time. In applications that fill a variety of products, the Product Settling System can be adjusted to accommodate a range of product filling parameters or simply "turned-off" if not required.

All set-up and control of the ICS-8 and the Filler is performed by the Filler’s control panel. This control panel is an intuitive, icon-based, graphical user interface with touch screen and comes standard with all Nalbach Servo Driven Auger and Cup Fillers. This powerful controller provides a single point of user control for the entire system making training, set-up and operation a breeze. The ICS is ideally suited for a broad range of industries in which powders, granulars, flakes and other free-flowing products are dispensed. Some of these industries include food, drink mixes, pharmaceuticals, health and beauty aids, chemicals, and pet foods.

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