Accuweigh has installed a carton filling system designed to fill almond kernels into cartons at an almond processing plant in Victoria.
The custom-made net weighing and carton filling system was installed by Accuweigh’s Melbourne branch at the processing plant for filling cartons from 5kg to 12.5kg at a rate of 4,500kg per hour with an accuracy of 30 grams or better.
A key feature in Accuweigh’s net weight carton filling systems is a 2,500-litre dual discharge supply hopper with adjustable product depth gates. The filling system is fitted with high and low level product probes.
The feeding and weigh filling lines of the carton filling system run parallel to each other and are contained in a dust-tight housing with hinged access doors for easy cleaning as well as maintenance.
The carton filling system and supply hopper are mounted on a freestanding support frame designed to Australian standards. An enclosed overlapping bucket elevator is also provided with the system for conveying almond kernels from the process line to the weigh system supply hopper.
Accuweigh is a major Australian industrial weighing and packaging company with an extensive network of local branches in all mainland states.
Accuweigh has gained tremendous industry experience from hundreds of filling systems installed across Australia and serviced by the local branches.
