KHS Pacific has released the Innofill DRV, a volumetrically controlled pressure filling system that operates entirely without lifting elements.
All valve functions are pneumatically controlled. This not only minimises expenditure on maintenance and consumables, but also provides very precise fill volumes regardless of pressure variations. This is a consequence of non-contact, adjustable filling volume measurement using an electromagnetic inductive flowmeter.
The short conversion time required for product and bottle changeover ensures high system availability on a wide front. All sequences are automated and all processes are automatically documented and are reproducible.
The computer-controlled single-chamber or three-chamber pressure filling system is available in several versions, including the DRV-VF for pressure-filling of carbonated beverages, the DRV-VF/N which can also handle pressureless filling of non-carbonated products. The DRV-VF/D can handle microbiologically sensitive products with a separate return gas control while the DRV-VF/DN can handle all the above filling variations.
