The MR900 series depositor is pneumatically operated and can be supplied with four sizes of product cylinder. This provides an accurate depositing weight range of 20-1250g, up to 60 cycles per minute.
The machine is extremely robust and is designed to withstand the most demanding conditions with the minimum maintenance. ‘Lubrication free’ pneumatic components can be fitted as an option. Many types of outlet can be supplied, for example: G.P. Outlets for liquids and solids in suspension, Suck-back Outlets fitted with special heads for cake decoration, Rotary spreader outlets to provide full cover spread of material within trays.
The MR900 depositor can be mounted on a mobile telescopic stand , at low level under any size of tank or arranged in a multilane configuration, upon a height adjustable cantilever frame.
Hoppers of different capacities, fitted with Paddle Agitators or Auger Screw Feedare also available.
Simplicity is also a feature, allowing unskilled operatives to easily strip down the machine for hygiene purposes, or product changeovers. Deposit volume and speed controls can be adjusted in seconds. The large ported acid resistant rotary valve allows unrestricted flow of delicate materials and particulated materials. Minimum number of components provides quick disassembly features. The depositor incorporates a failsafe safety device which guarantees the air is removed, prior to disassembly. The clean lines of the depositor incorporate a recessed control panel with individual controls for product intake and output speed. Quick release sub base mounted valves reduce maintenance and potential ‘down time’.
