Filling Lines for Nuts & Other Granular Dry Productsin tubs, cups, pails or clamshell containers


Adapted filling line for granular dry products like, nuts, chocolate buds, cereals, spices, dry fruits, etc.

For these we have developed:

  • Several containers’ denesters, adapted to work well with many different shapes of containers including clamshells.
  • A double linear weigh depositor feeding products directly in the containers sitting on embedded scale platens. This system allows us to install the vibrator outlets near the containers which gives a greater precision. Furthermore, by using two scales, we can control both the bulk and dribble filling simultaneously. This gives us greater speed over other linear scale for equivalent accuracy.

When a combination scale is installed over our packaging line to fill the containers, we can provide:

  • A pneumatically activated product containment system (“The Hat”) at the filling station that closes the gap between the combination scale and the container to guide the granular product down and prevent it from bouncing out.
  • A gate to the previously describe “Hat” to act as a catcher to collect the right quantity of product before a new empty container arrives, thus canceling any delay in the product’s chute, so leading to a speed up to 60 1 lb tubs/minute on a single-lane machine.
  • A catcher/compacter allowing the compaction of the product, like wrapped candy, directly inside the container after it has been filled.
  • A variety of container vibrator to evenly spread the product
  • A closing head with an air removing system ensures that the lid of a tamper-evident container is pushed in while closing to look concave.

When an Auger depositor is installed over our automatic filling machine for nuts and other dry products, we can provide:

  • A container-elevator for bottom fill
  • A variety of container vibrator to evenly spread the product

Our standard packaging lines can also be equipped with an automatic sealing unit, with or without gas injection for MAP packaging. The seal quality of our sealing system allows our customers to also use HPP

Adapted Equipment

Additional Modules for Dry Product Filling Lines

  • Cup, tub, tray and bucket filling lines: single or multi-lane
  • your multiscale depositor can be integrated within our system

Additional Modules

For fully integrated filling lines :

  • Automatic cup, tub, tray and bucket plastic film sealer: the PL500
  • For the multi-lane filling lines, a lane concentrator may be required.

For small production : stand alone components can be proposed (please visit our Machine Guide), such as, for example :

  • a container denester DS1500,
  • a container closer FS1500,
  • a lid denester and closer FDS1400,
  • a filling position plus a lid denester and closer: the FDS1500,
  • or an accumulation table T50.
