Torque Limiter
Typical Applications

8. Bottling Machine

Product:

Series 600 Torque Limiter

Application:

Bottling Machinery

Function:

Bottles with a capacity of up to 5 liters are filled automatically at high speed in a rotating drum. The bottles are fed into the system by a helix screw feeder and under the rotating filling heads by a star wheel. Misfeeds, jams and breakages in either the star wheel or feeder can result in damage and expensive downtime.

Drive Specification:

Electric motor and belt drive to a reduction gearbox.

Torque Limiters:

A pneumatically operated, model 602 timed size 3 “Airjustor” is fitted on the main drive of the rotating filler assembly. In addition, a 200 series ACT size 2 unit is fitted to both the star wheel and helix drive. All have an
automatic synchronous reset facility.

Benefits:

Downtime is greatly reduced and overload damage to the machine has been eliminated. The on / off facility of the Airjustor allows easy disconnection of the filler head assembly for ease of machine set up and synchronization of the handling systems.
