Aseptic Fillers Aseptic Filler Fillstar FX AS

The Fillstar FX series is the range of aseptic volumetric electronic fillers, supplied with magnetic flow meters, for any still product.

The Fillstar FX series is suitable for high or low acid, clear or viscous products, and those with pulps, fibers and pieces sized up to 6 x 6 x 6 mm.

Aseptic filling of still products

The product is fed from a sterile buffer tank on top of the filling carrousel through a linear product path by overpressure of sterile air or sterile nitrogen gas. The flow meter regulates the quantity of liquid according to the container and closes a membrane valve when a predetermined quantity is reached. A dual-speed design (slow speed mode is used at beginning and end of filling cycle) allows to rapidly fill volatile products without turbulence, avoiding foaming.

Cross contamination is avoided by preventing contact between the filling nozzle and the bottle. FX fillers are sterilized internally using steam, and to guarantee optimal hygiene, no moving parts are in contact with the product.
