Ecolean unveiled its EL1+ filling machine for chilled family-sized packages. The new machine supports the company’s goal to provide a lighter life for both liquid food producers and consumers worldwide, the company says. The new, simplified design also increases capacity as much as 140 percent compared with the previous model, enabling customers to produce more with less in the same footprint, it adds. The EL1+ reduces complexity while increasing hygiene with a redesigned filling chamber that features four fillers instead of two to increase capacity. The newly designed infeed servo system handles packages in a single cam movement to fill Ecolean’s Air 500-, 1000- and 1500-ml packages with a capacity of as many as 7,000 packages an hour, the company says. The outfeed has been redesigned to improve connectivity and interface better with auxiliary equipment. For instance, the EL1+ uses a new HMI and the latest Omron control system, which features a virtual master servo axis to improve machine performance and ease of operation. Other options for the EL1+ include an applicator for the company’s patented reclosing SnapQuick closure and an air-handling unit to provide the filling system with HEPA-filtered air.
