Dry Fillers

Ascend Packaging Systems, LLC - Dry Fillers Product Image

Ascend Packaging Systems supplies slat fillers for the pharmaceutical industry. The pharmaceutical industry requires an attention to detail and another level of compliance higher than most other markets. Preventing cross-contamination and running clean operation is vital to the end product, but it also adds time to the overall process. Bridging the gap between the goals of compliance and efficient operations in bottle-filling machines is the SureFill 300 Slat Filler, which is capable of throughput of up to 300 bottles per minute, providing the high productivity in bottle-filling applications. Slat filler features an open design that provides total access for easy cleaning, inspection, and changeover, as well as Allen Bradley PLC controls with open architecture for easy validation and support.
