Although it looks trivial at first, when you take a closer look at it, decanting liquids on an industrial scale is extremely complex. For example, numerous measurements and checks have to be made in fractions of a second here, and not only should this occur without disturbing the flow of operation, it should also, ideally, continually optimize it. A challenge that is tailor-made for the KOSME Group. And the manufacturer of filling and packaging machinery is now responding with a new generation of intelligent filling machines, whose secret star is the FIT® digital load cell from HBM.
As a subsidiary of Krones AG, the global market leader for filling machines for liquids in plastic and glass bottles and cans, as well as their labeling and packaging, the KOSME Group stands for competitive and reliable solutions in the packaging & beverage scene. The latest proof is the new WEIGHFILL net weight filling machines with innovative, digital weighing technology, developed in cooperation with HBM.
KOSME developed the new WEIGHFILL fillers with a low-pressure storage tank for special applications. Because they are easy to wash out and sterilize, the fill material can quickly be changed. Foamy, runny and thick liquids can be decanted just as easily as sticky, conductive and non-conductive ones. One of the things that makes this possible is the use of intelligent, yet robust measurement technology from HBM - the FIT digital load cell. Because the FIT® load cell monitors and controls the cutoff points, the bottling process can be permanently monitored and optimized for maximum accuracy. Before starting the filling process, each tank is checked for the acceptable tare weight. Doing this ensures that no faulty tanks or tanks filled with inadmissible material are included in the bottling process.
