RAPID RIGGS IS THE BUSINESS FOR B&DFL

B&DFL, a leading manufacturer of chutneys, relishes and sauces has chosen depositing
and filling specialists Riggs Autopack Ltd, to provide a complete turnkey solution to meet
increased demand.

A quick response from Riggs Autopack, who assembled and installed the entire production line within eight weeks, enabled B&DFL to successfully fulfil the expectations from a major
supermarket multiple, as well as being able to achieve higher speeds and improved machine control.
Riggs Autopack supplied B&DFL with a versatile fully automatic single head filling machine, to fill glass and plastic jars and bottles with up to four tonnes of product per day whilst coping with various viscosities and particulate sizes. The machine copes with
various container sizes via a simple to use gating and no container/no fill sensing system.
The turnkey solution, which was assembled and tested at Riggs Autopack’s factory
headquarters in Nelson Lancashire, prior to delivery, comprised the filling machine, ‘twist
off’ capping machine, in line metal detection and induction sealing. A Riggs Autopack
mobile transfer pump completed the line to provide automatic top up of the feed hopper on
the filling machine. This entire system was designed with mechanical and control
interlocks between component parts to provide B&DFL with a simple and highly effective
automatic line.
Having previously used Riggs Autopack for the supply of a transfer pump, B&DFL chose
the company again because of its successful past experience and Riggs Autopack’s
excellent reputation within the industry. The customer is particularly impressed with the
rapid changeover time, the machine’s ability to handle large particulates, ease of cleaning
and simplicity in use.

B&DFL’s Technical Manager Mr Nick Brooke commented: “We are thoroughly impressed
with the speed and accuracy as well as the hygienic design of the pump and conveyor
systems which was demonstrated by Riggs Autopack – the depth of knowledge within the
team was outstanding. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others and I
look forward to working with them on a new project in the not too distant future.”
