Series 500 machines are multiple head pneumatically operated volumetric (piston type) units with a wide range of applications.  They are suitable for accurate dispensing of most liquid or semi liquid products and may be used for filling rigid containers, pouches or formed cavities on FFS machines – or, in the bakery industry, for depositing pie fillings, batters, cake mixes, toppings etc.

Construction is generally corrosion resistant, with frame and covers fabricated in T304 stainless steel.  All contact parts are manufactured from T316 stainless steel or suitable plastics, allowing them to be used for such diversified products as foodstuffs, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, home care preparations and corrosive chemicals.  Material may be handled hot or cold, and volumetric accuracy is usually well within +/- 0.5%.
