We were recently tasked with designing& building a bulk filling system for pre-cooked rice products for one of the UK’s leading ethnic meals manufacturers.

The machine was the outcome of an ongoing trials and consultation period with the customer over a period of over6 months, undertaken to ensure that machine performance and design expectations could be met.

Utilising our knowledge of volumetric filling, we redesigned our Unifill volumetric filling machine to accommodate the 1.5Kg fill requirements of this particular project. Mounting the filler over an indexing conveyor system, with tub denester and bulk feed elevator, we were able to satisfy the customers 24 packs per minute requirements whilst reducing staff number on line.

The bulk filling system features adjustable deposit weight 1.4Kg – 2.8Kg and would be equally suited to other cooked or uncooked, free-flowing particulate products.
