IMPAK’s Gear Pump Filler/Liquid Filler is a single pump, gear-actuated, micro-processor controlled Filler with versatile controls.

The unit, with its simple yet precise filling architecture, (via surgical tubing input/output) makes it perfect for handling granule free liquids; everything from medications, chemicals, grease, cosmetic and various food products.

The durable foot pedal allows hands-free operation (less handling = less chance of contamination). The use of surgical tubing makes fast work of cleanup, sterilizing or product switch.

Operation is straightforward. Simply attach input tubing to liquid source, whether a 5-gallon bucket or small cup. Turn on the heavy duty stainless steel Filler and adjust filling time. The Filler is portable (15 ¾” X 10 ¼” X 11”) and lightweight (less than 25 pounds) to allow the most flexible setup options.

Auto or Semi-Automatic modes with adjustable interval time helps the operator set the perfect pace for their particular Filling operation. The Gear Pump Filler easily outputs 500ml (or 16.9 ounces) every 10 seconds.

Benefits:

Elements Last Longer- Wider elements last longer and require fewer replacements over the life of the sealer

Cleaner/More attractive hermetic seal: Wider elements seal more material surface, resulting in less curling of material and ability to seal through small particulates.

Shorter Seal Cycle- Higher amperage reduces seal time

Seals up to 6.0 mil foil material- Higher amperage allows for the sealing of heavier duty material containing foil.

Sizes Available: 4”, 8”, 12”, 16” and 20
