Products depositors and mixersDouble volumetric piston depositor
The DVP1000D is a screw fed double volumetric piston depositor for raw vegetables (cabbage, carrot…), legumes, grains and pasta based prepared salads. It is specifically designed for specialty prepared salads manufacturers. In particular, it respects the integrity of products and chunks are neither cut nor smashed.
It fills both hot and cold products.
This machine enables food processors to easily and precisely fill those difficult products into various containers.
The concept of this Dual Volumetric Piston Depositor is to use two feeding screws located at the bottom of the hopper to push the product into expanding cavities of two dosing chambers with pistons.
Once the cavities have expanded to the selected volume, two directional valves turn to redirect the product being pushed by the pistons towards dispensing valves located over the containers. The dispensing valve will cut any food string leftovers along the way to prevent jams and allow clean fill cycles.

Servomotors – Since servomotors control both the feeding screws in the hopper and the position of the pistons in the dosing chambers, we can precisely adjust the ratio of rotation of the screws and the movement of the pistons inside the cavities. This allows us to apply constant pressure on the product that goes inside the cavities, which usually would vary depending on the quantity of product in the hopper. We can increase the pressure applied by the feeding screws to compact the product inside the cavities if needed.
