Products like candles or deodorant may be solid when you use them, but they don’t start out that way. These products are, in fact, poured as a hot, molten liquid into their container before solidifying and taking shape. While these products are created with liquid filling machines, they must be filled using equipment made explicitly for molten liquid products. The equipment that is best for molten liquids includes molten fillers, cooling conveyors, and pre-heat and re-melt stations. The liquid-filling experts at Filamatic can help you find the best features for your molten liquid-filling needs.
Why Are Molten Liquid Fillers Required?
If you need to place items in their packaging while they are still hot, you cannot rely on traditional liquid-filling machine components. Products like deodorants, glycerin soap, petroleum jelly, and lip balm are just a few items that are poured hot into their containers. These machines can handle molten materials safely to preserve both the equipment’s lifespan and your workplace’s safety.
After your molten product is filled, the next crucial step is allowing it to gradually come to room temperature. A cooling conveyor added to your production line can transport containers slowly from their filling stations to their next destination while allowing the temperature to drop gradually to room temperature. As the temperature of the molten product decreases, the liquid slowly turns to solid and takes the smooth, uniform shape that is expected.
Pre-Heat and Re-Melt Stations
For maximum quality and a beautiful final appearance of your molten products, you may include pre-heat and re-melt stations on your production line. A pre-heat station can heat your containers before filling them, which can help give the overall product a more consistent appearance once filled. A re-melt station would be used at the end of the cooking process to achieve the smooth and flawless appearance that customers appreciate.
Having the right tools on hand for molten liquid products is essential for producing high-quality items. Contact Filamatic today to find the system that works best for you.
