Retail Fillers High Speed Auger Fillers

The RCF-10A filler delivers high performance and reliability at lower cost. The result is improved operational efficiency and reduced costs for our customers' retail powder packing plants.

Previously known as the Colby RCF-10, this filler takes the best auger filling technology from many years of filling experience. GEA has incorporated this technology into the RCF-10A resulting in a high speed continuous filling machine suitable for sanitary, reliable filling of a wide range of food and dairy powders.

Overview

GEA Avapac Auger Can Filler Close

Using state of the art closed loop, individual head, feedback technology combined with gross and tare check weighing these fillers achieve high accuracy and repeatability. This results in reduced product giveaway and fewer rejects.

Solid mechanical design combined with standard controls components ensures long term reliability and improved serviceability. User friendly controls mean ease of operation so start-ups are quicker and shut downs shorter.

Other features of Rotary Continuous Fillers (RCF) are high sanitation (to ‘3A’ standards), fast container diameter changeover and powered adjustment for container height.
