The Crandall weighing system is specially designed for the filling operation. This ensures accurate filling under plant conditions. When properly installed and operated, the system will give sustained accuracy within +/-0.5% of the target weight.
Type A fillers are shipped complete and assembled and can be quickly installed by your plant personnel. No special foundation is necessary. Motors on models with motorized conveyors are provided to the purchaser's electrical specifications. To install, place the machine in its operating position, connect the product supply line, and connect the electrics (if the machine has a motorized conveyor). If the machine is a pneumatically operated model, it has a filter/regulator/lubricator system to prepare plant air for machine use.
Sturdy designs and construction guarantees many years of service. No special tools are necessary to make adjustments.
Supply of Product:
The machine may be supplied from any source, providing a constant flow rate to each nozzle. Pneumatically operated models may have supply line pressure from gravity to 3 kg/sq. cm (40 p.s.i.g.).
The operation of the filling system is non-electric. Motors on models with motorized conveyors are Class 1, Group D, Explosion Proof-UL, and CSA-approved. There are no large moving parts to injure the operator. On pneumatically operated models, the operator has access to a quick shut-off button.
Change of Container:
To change the container, adjust the height of the filling nozzle using the rack and gear system and adjust weights. If the container opening size is different, change the filling nozzle.
Pneumatic Models: 0.8 liters at 4.2 kg/sq. cm (60 cu. in. at 80 p.s.i.g.) per container filled.
Models with motorized discharge conveyors only - 5.5 amps maximum, depending on the voltage used.
On pneumatically operated models, cylinders exhaust through ports with mufflers. A level < 20 db.
SPECIAL ADAPTIONS ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR SPECIFIC USER REQUIREMENTS
