The co.'s Model FF30 tabletop filling and capping machine is designed to replace manual filling for batch sizes between 100 to 2,000 units or more per day, the co. says. The automatic filling process is claimed to eliminate fill inaccuracies, as well as operator strain injuries resulting from repetitive torquing of the closures. The easy-to-clean, peristaltic filler features precision accuracy, consistent torque, fast format changeover and quick and efficient certification since product comes in direct contact only with disposable, sterile tubing and the filling needle. Adjustments to accommodate variations in product viscosity are made through the selection of the appropriate tubing dimension. All format parts are mounted using easy-access finger screws. Vials and bottles between 12 and 50 mm are filled, are fitted with a closure and are fully torqued to a pre-determined setting in an automatically controlled progression. Provides fill volumes from 0.1 to 100 mL with an accuracy of ±0.5 percent.
