Filling Systems

  • PENKO Engineering B.V. has developed a range of solutions and products to control the accurate filling of containers of all types.  

    The unique PENKO way of measuring, high speed with a high resolution immediately detects changes in weight. This eliminates a previous contradiction, so in spite of high production speeds, a high filling accuracy is maintained. This prevents undesired overfilling, thus saving you money!  Filling controllers are designed to ensure that the exact content per package is dispatched based on weight. The filling process is usually found at the end of a production process in any given process flow.

    Legal requirements are obligatory for trading purposes. The worldwide O.I.ML. (International Organization for Legal Metrology) recommendation R61 outlines these rules while the MID (Measurements Instruments Directive) is Europe specific.   

    There are two types of weight fillers:

    1. “Net filler”   : the mass is dosed outside of the package prior to being dumped into an empty package.
    2. “Gross-filler”:  the mass is dosed directly into the package.

    In connection with various weighing methods and dosing mechanisms, the course weighing process requires a distinction between solid and liquid fillers.  We also differentiate between non-automatic and automatic filing processes. The difference is that during the non-automatic process, an operator decides whether or not a package has the correct amount of content, whereas during the automatic this decision is taken by the machine. 

    A third variation involves the e-mark ruling applicable to packages ≤ 10kg and packages over 10kg that require filling at a minimum weight.

    E-mark Regulation

    Filling data can be sent directly from a certified system to an e-mark registry. No check weighing is needed in this process.
