Based on commercial electronic scales the gravimetric (fill by weight) units offer accurate and rapid filling of containers up to 200 litre capacity. Two different basic models - 1200 (0.5 -20 litres) and 1201 (20 - 200 litres) - are available in either top fill or sub surface (bottom-up) fill configuration.

Sub surface fill mechanisms incorporate a hydro-pneumatic drive for the lance, to facilitate precise synchronisation with the fill rate, and also include a feature which ensures that the lance does not retract from the container before the fill is complete.

All machines incorporate a two-stage cut-off and non-drip nozzles to ensure accurate and clean filling of a wide range of products.

All product contact parts are manufactured from stainless steel or suitable plastics, and construction is generally corrosion resistant.

Flow rate is adjustable for both the bulk and dribble phases of the fill - provision must be made to pump or gravity feed product to the machine at compatible rates.
