The new Cap Coder Alphafill is a standalone peristaltic filling machine for precisely controlled dosing of liquids during the production of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and other high-value products.  Equipped with a top-quality peristaltic pump head powered by a variable-speed brushless dc motor, the Alphafill has a touch-screen operator interface.  This enables the operator to program an exact dose for any given size of delivery tube, and to save up to four different programs for instant access and use.  Delivery of the programmed dose is digitally controlled using a pulse sensor, not a timer, so unreliable dosing because of changes in motor speed is eliminated.


The Alphafill can be used manually or remotely controlled by a programmable logic controller forming part of a capping machine, or other process machinery, via an industry-standard 5-pin 180º DIN socket.  For products likely to drip, the pump motor is equipped with a reverse suck-back feature which prevents drips after each dose is complete, while maintaining consistent, precise filling volumes.  Where necessary, two peristaltic pump heads can be fitted for faster filling or twin-filling operation. 


Programming the dose is straightforward.  For a tube of a bore from 0.8mm to 8.0mm, the operator selects the dose required and enters a set point obtained from the operating manual on the touch-screen. Saving that set point programs the Alphafill to deliver precisely that dose through that tube every time. If suck-back is required, the amount of suck-back needed is entered via the touch-screen and becomes part of the saved program. Up to four programs can be stored at any one time.


The Alphafill will now be supplied as standard where required as part of Cap Coder’s range of automatic capping and filling machines, and is available now as a standalone programmable filling machine to improve your product dosing and eliminate wastage.
