Fogg Filler launches new down bottle reject system
Non-electrical system uses mechanical motion to decrease downtime
Focused on improving technology in rotary filling systems, Fogg Filler offers a down bottle reject system designed to eliminate unwanted down time when a downed bottle is stuck in the infeed screw. Ideal when running small bottles at high speeds upstream, the system forces downed bottles to be rejected through a 100 percent mechanical motion that requires no electricity or programming, the company says. Additionally, the system helps increase throughput and decrease downtime since production does not need to be halted to recover downed bottles, which then can be caught in a tote or bag. The down bottle reject system can be retrofitted to a variety of lines and older machines would benefit from the integration of an extended conveyor and change parts, it says. The new system is ideal for bottles as small as 0.5-10 ounces through 32-ounce bottles.
