The 3P-32 piston filling machine for horizontal vacuum formers is ideal for accurate, clean filling of a wide range of products, from thin sauces or marinades to viscous mashed potatoes or deli salads. Positive shut off spouts are used to maintain a clean seal zone. The system fills from fractions of an ounce up to 32 fluid ounces per piston. PLC controls make the machine versatile enough to run over a 1 up to a 6 up package configuration. Moving or diving spouts are used for spreading of product or to prevent mounding. For elevated temperature applications a self-contained heat system maintains product temperature.
