Aerosol filling machines are a safe and reliable means to fill a long list of aerosol products in many different industries. Some of the popular uses include gas cartridges, cleaning products, pharmaceutical products, and cosmetics. These machines come in a variety of sizes and configurations to match the specific needs in relation to production capacity, filling needs, and available factory floor space.
Here are five of the most popular types of aerosol filling machines:
The automatic aerosol filling machine is one of the fastest and most-effective options with the ability to fill 50 or more cans per minute. This type of machine is a great choice for filling pharmaceutical aerosols such as the Bag-on-Value (BOV) and metered dose inhalers (MDIs) for products like shaving gels, lotions, and creams. Most of these machines provide a full service including gassing, crimping, and valve correction.
The semi-automatic machine is a great option for small-scale productions, formulation work, samples, and laboratory use. This type of machine has the ability to fill in the region of 15 cans per minute, although this will vary with the skill of the operator and specific operation.
The Spray-paint aerosol filling machine is usually built with a conveyor belt and packing table to provide a complete service to fill spray cans with a speed of about 40 to 45 cans per minute. This machine is fully automated with multiple tasks completed such as valve inserting, weight check, and leak testing. Spray-paint machines are quite compact in size and suitable for all types of industries.
The Pesticide aerosol filling machine is designed to perform multiple functions including propellant filling, sealing, valve placement, liquid filling, and can feeding. Similar to the spray-paint machine, this type of appliance has the ability to fill up to 45 cans per minute. The automatic or semi-automatic nature of most of these machines makes them easy to operate and simple to maintain.
The gas cartridge filling machine is a practical option for businesses involved in camping or outdoor gas supplies, such as propane or butane. These machines are built to perform quickly and safely and are designed to crimp the cap in place to avoid leaks. A typical gas cartridge set-up has the ability to fill up to 10 cans per minute.
Whether it is economical or high-end applications, there is certain to be a specific type of aerosol filling machine to match the needs of all small or large-scale industries.
