Bottle Filling

Product Family: Electric
Product Used: ERD rod cylinder
Product Type: Standard

Application Requirements:
Stroke: 14 inches

Application Description: 
Fill four bottles simultaneously from the bottom up at various fill rates.

A manufacturer of bottle filling equipment needed bottles to be filled at controlled rates and was currently employing a pneumatic actuator solution. The customer wanted to eliminate the hour change-over time the pneumatic actuators required to accommodate the various bottle heights introduced on the line. The actuators were also subjected to a wash down environment.

Tolomatic Solution:
An ERD15 stainless steel rod-style actuator with the IP67 option was chosen for this application to withstand the frequent wash down requirements. Tolomatic provided a custom stroke longer than the standard cataloged offering with fast delivery. The customer was also provided a special motor mount through Tolomatic’s Your Motor Here program to retrofit their motor of choice at no additional charge.

Customer Benefit:

  • Better fill control
  • Reduced change-over time
  • Efficient economical electric solution
