Improve Filling Reliability and Accuracy
Replace the cams or air cylinders in your volumetric filling machine with an Exlar actuator and you will see precise volume control and an accurate fill rate! With an Exlar GSX Series actuator operating the piston pump, users are achieving better than 0.1% fill accuracy.
More importantly, the flexibility offered by the servo based Exlar actuator offers you the ability to manipulate flow rates or volume instantaneously, without setting any switches or changing out any cams. Container size, volume, or liquid changes are simple to obtain - just enter a new setting in the operator interface panel, or have a PLC do the changes. Operate independent lanes or synchronize all the pumps together.
The GSX Series provides a wash-down compatible, sealed design in a compact package. Replacing the cams or fluid power cylinders can be an easy retrofit resulting in better performance, less maintenance and longer life of your machine.
Exlar actuators are being used to pump many products including milk, fruit juice, gelatin, yogurt, pudding, pet food, soup, and cake batter. Even paint, lip stick, grease and solvents are being pumped.
