Multi-Fill Inc. specialises in the manufacture of semi-automatic and automatic volumetric fillers for the home meal replacement, convenience foods and food service industries.

Multi-Fill Inc. has recently released a new batch feed system designed to dispense a bulk amount of product into their filling machinery. The flexible batch feeder dispenses products such as cooked rice, pastas, couscous, fruits, vegetables and salads at rates of up to 1,750kg per hour, depending on the nature of the product. The unique discharge system prevents bridging or sticking of the product.

The Multi-Fill Inc. batch feeder 300L hopper can be fed by a vertical post dumper, conveyor or chute from a platform, mezzanine or second floor. The system deposits the correct amount of product into the Multi-Fill conveyor feed hopper synchronising with the filler/line speed.

Key benefits of adding a batch feed system include reduction in problems such as tunnelling and damage to the product; First in, First Out product flow with an automatic flow requiring no adjustment; easy to clean design with tool-less lift out parts, swing away safety covers and captured guards; allows mounting directly on the frame of the Multi-Fill filling machine or can be supplied as a ‘standalone’ roll-in, roll-out unit; and can be retrofitted to older style Multi-Fill models or with any other conveying systems.

Multi-Fill Inc. is represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies .
