Cosmetic packaging equipment for creams, liquids and gels features fillers and sealers for “airless” pump containers, which prevent oxygen from contacting the product. The new filling/closing systems accommodate vials, jars, bottles and other containers in various sizes (including a range from 15 to 500 mL) and close them with press-on closures, screw caps or airless or conventional pump attachments. The products can either be thin or viscous. The equipment also includes a flexible puck transport system that accepts different cap diameters with quick-change puck adjustments. The fillers offer two-component-filling for two different products or two-headed filling, which can increase the output rate for multiple dosing applications. Nitrogen gas flushing and CIP/SIP is also available.
