Fillers/depositors

April 1, 2011




Hinds-Bock fillers/depositors for use over horizontal vacuum formers are engineered for the clean filling of liquid or moist products ranging from water, thin brine or marinades to viscous potatoes, peanut butter, jams and jellies, candy or cheese; they can also be used for value-added meat, fish or poultry applications requiring the addition of sauce. Large port openings enable the gentle passage of particulates such as fruit slices or large potato pieces in deli salads. The units are available in both standard and custom machines in sizes to match package configuration. Optional features include diving or traveling spouts for product distribution, hopper agitation, heated or cooled machines and a selection of positive shut-off spouts.  Pressure-fed fillers for viscous products that do not self level are also available.
