Using Liquid Filling Machines for Cleansers and Cleaning Supplies

Pump fillers for chemical cleansers

When your business is packaging and selling cleansers or cleaning supplies, it’s important to have an efficient method for getting your product into bottles and containers and onto shelves or in your customers’ hands. At E-PAK Machinery, we offer the machinery and equipment that companies need to do just that. We offer both standard machinery as well as corrosion-resistant machinery, and whether you need one machine or the entire setup, we’ve got you covered.

Types of Machinery Used In a Liquid Filling Line

If you’ve already got a packaging line set up, you know about the different machines necessary to create an efficient operation. However, if you’re just starting out, you may need more information about the types of equipment that take your product from its creation all the way to being in nicely labeled containers . First, you’ll need bottle cleaners, which are used to ensure that your product doesn’t become contaminated by any particles. They work by vacuuming out any contaminated air, so once the containers pass through this machine, they’re ready to be filled. Next in line is a conveyor, since you’ll need one to take the bottles from station to station. The next step will involve a liquid filling machine to actually get your product into a container. Depending on your product’s consistency and viscosity, there may be a machine that will stand out as the clear winner over another. You’ll have to choose between:

  • Gravity fillers
  • Net weigh fillers
  • Overflow fillers
  • Piston fillers
  • Pressure fillers
  • Pump fillers

Once your product has been filled into containers, the conveyors will take them to the next station, a capping machine. Again, you’ll have the choice between a few different styles. Finally, they’ll go to a labeler where you can affix a detailed label that lets people know what is in the container.

Do You Need Corrosion-Resistant Machinery?

If your cleaning product or cleanser is made of harsh chemicals or abrasive acids, you may need to consider using machinery that is resistant to corrosion. These machines are made from HDPE, or high-density polyethylene, which can stand up to harsh environments where standard metals would melt and corrode. Some chemical cleansers may not need anti-corrosive machinery as they are gentle enough to be packaged with standard metal machines. If you’re unsure if you need specialty equipment for your products, feel free to contact us, and we’ll be happy to help you make the best decision for your packaging line.
