Corrosive Liquid Filling Machine
Corrosive products are dangerous to personnel and accelerate depreciation of capital equipment. Therefore, it is paramount that a filling machine design for these types of products control exposure of personnel to hazardous liquids and gasses. It is also important that materials of construction and other special design features be chosen to protect the buyer’s investment. There are many examples of tragic accidents due to the lack of foresight in this regard. Moreover, machines not correctly built for these environments see major disrepair and decay of the machinery within 6 months.
Generally speaking, the time gravity filling machine is predominant in the corrosive chemical filling industry because of its simplicity of operation and the fact that it does not pressurize or recirculate these chemicals which can increase risk of exposure to personnel. Because the filling machine is used for corrosives that generally attack metal components, there are special design considerations for both materials of construction as well as fasteners in this time gravity filling machine.
If your business deals with filling corrosive liquids into containers, you understand the challenges that can come with finding machinery that can accommodate those liquids. At NPACK, we are proud to offer corrosive filling machinery, including a corrosion resistant corrosive liquid filling machine. Our corrosive fillers, machined out of HDPE (high density polyethylene), are designed to handle the harsh punishment that comes along with corrosive liquids. The fillers are capable of handling a variety of viscosities, perfect for accommodating a number of different industries’ products.
Equipment Accommodations For Acids And Corrosives
Corrosion-resistant machines are made from HDPE, and are designed to be able to stand up to the harsh environment that corrosive liquids create. Where standard metal components would normally dissolve, these machines are designed to withstand the chemical reaction. Corrosive-compatible machinery can be used with products such as:
- Cleaning products
- Bases such as sodium hypochlorite
- Acids including hydrochloric acid
- Water-thin and foaming corrosive liquids
- Pool chemicals
What Makes Corrosive-Resistant Machinery Different ?
The standards for machinery that corrosives will pass through are different than the standards for regular machinery. For instance, corrosive-resistant equipment is made with Kynar or Teflon fill valves, HDPE construction, braided PVC tubing, polypropylene fittings, optional enclosures for ventilation and safety, and more. These machines are made with robust materials that hold up against corrosive environments, so you can rely on them to get the job done, time after time.
