How does the Alfa Laval Astepo piccolo filler work?
The operator inserts an empty bag into the spout holder, which activates the filling sequence. The system then removes the cap and inserts the product valve. Any residual air is removed by the vacuum, and the product then begins to flow into the bag.
Upon completion of filling the desired volume of product into the bag, the filling machine automatically shuts off flow of product. A puff of nitrogen follows. The bag is recapped, and the filled bag is ejected from the holder to one side.
