Ingredients specialist Beacon Foods has installed an automated pot filler and sealer FP-6 model from Packaging Automation.

The machine, which has been designed for frequent product changeovers, has an operating speed of 40 cycles per minute.

According to Packaging Automation, the food company can now deposit its range of ready to use portions of compotes, chutneys, relishes, dips, sauces and certain roasted vegetables in pots ranging from 20 to 80g.

Beacon Foods managing director Edward Gough said the firm can supply the portions, which will be suitable for ready meals, airline meals, desserts and breakfast pots, with the new machine.

Gough explained: “We are extremely happy with the new machine, PA’s service and support were outstanding throughout the installation and commissioning period. The machine is able to hot and cold fill and seal reel-fed film lids, which further extends the packaging formats we are able to offer to our customers.”

The machine offers various options including a date coder and a closed loop weight control system to adjust fill volumes automatically. It can also be used for dry fill such as cereal products as well as hot and cold liquid, the company said.
