Liquid Filling Machines: Spring Cleaning #101

spring cleaningSpringtime is finally here, and with spring comes blooming flowers, birds chirping, and warmer weather, but it also brings that annual spring cleaning to-do-list. At Filamatic, we are firm believers in preventative care and routine maintenance to ensure you get the most out of your Filamatic liquid filling system.

The most common questions that we receive are in regards to keeping your liquid filling machine operating at a high level, as well as what additional spare parts are necessary to keep your machine running smoothly.

Regarding keeping your machine operating at a high level… taking the time to perform routine maintenance will go a long way. Whether exercising general cleaning duties or remembering to enact procedural practices, e.g. cleaning tooling before & after your changeovers is critical to the life of your machine and associated pieces.

This can be a relatively quick process, but needs to be done on a regular basis to eliminate any buildup in/on your machine. We also recommend when dealing with larger machine parts to take the tooling out then proceed to clean them and when handling smaller parts you may be able to clean those items while still on the machine. These simple practices will greatly enhance your production runs and add years to the life of your machine.

Another commonly asked question references spare parts… as you review your projects and forecast production schedules, you come to the conclusion that you’ll need some more spare parts to keep your schedules running smoothly (tubing, o-rings, gaskets, spare pumps/etc.) You can easily contact Filamatic – Customer Service to acquire a specific spare parts list for your exact machine and take those concerns off the table.

Ultimately, Filamatic is your long-term industry partner, so feel free to contact our Customer & Technical Service members to better understand how to increase the life of our liquid filling system. We are always happy to help.

We wish you a happy spring cleaning! And remember, Filamatic has your industry-specific experience to ensure your satisfaction is exceeded. Unique performance. Undeniable quality. Unrivaled support.
