Some of the innovative packaging systems from Nichrome include: Bottle Filling Line for Liquids, Viscous & Solids The Bottle Filling Line utilises different types of fillers depending on the product to be packaged. A gravity filler is used for liquids such as water, flavoured milk, energy drinks, buttermilk and perfumes; a piston filler facilitates filling of viscous products such as oil, ghee, ketchup, sauce, shampoo, hand wash and varnish. The line can also be adapted for different SKUs without change of parts. These include glass, PP and HDPE bottles, and tin cans in units ranging from 100 ml to 20 ltrs. Filling speed ranges from 20 to 100 bottles per minute, depending on the number of filling heads. The Bottle Filling Line is available for solids packaging too. Applications range from milk powder, spice powders, seasoning powders & pharma powders to pulses, grains, sugar & tea to tablets, dry fruits, soya chunks & whole spices. Just change the filler and use the filling line for any powder and solid application. The PLC-controlled system is fitted with a unique 'no bottle no filling' safety device, and safety enclosures with interlocks for rotary parts. It works well for glass, HDPE and PP bottles (10 gms to 1000 gms) and offers fast changeover for different bottle sizes.
