JL Lennard has released the Krones Volumetic VODM-PET filling system for UHT milk and milk-based mixed drinks in PET. It enables the volume of product being handled to be precisely specified by an inductive flow meter.
The system can perform the filling function without touching the bottle. It is suitable for aseptic bottling processes. The electro-pneumatic control system enables clients to pre-program reproducible filling steps.
The VODM-PET milk filler is available with six different diameters, from 1800mm to 4320mm for 50 to 120 valves. The design for exclusively still products offers a greatly reduced number of function valves and is easier to clean as a result. The cleaning procedure is supported by automatic CIP cups.
The machine's isolator design presupposes sterilisation of all components inside it and of inflowing media and packaging components.
