The FILAMATIC® AB Series Benchtop is a semi-automatic medium duty filler, ideal for repetitive dispensing of liquids from water-thin to viscous, molten products, and products with small particulates. The AB Series can accommodate fill volumes ranging from .05 to 260ml with the ability to mix and match pumps and nozzles for optimal versatility and flexibility.
This single nozzle filling machine incorporates a variable speed electrical gearmotor drive, which turns the crankshaft that drives a volumetric piston pump known as a “Filling Unit”. The Filling Units are accessories offered to dispense a wide range of liquids and are made from either glass or stainless steel. The AB Series is offered in three models which operate at a maximum rate of 84 RPM, 35 RPM, and 23 RPM. The Models are the AB, AB-5, and AB-8. Designs are available for OEM Applications as well as CE Mark certified, and air operated models for hazardous environments.
The Model AB-5 delivers a fill speed at a max rate of 35 RPM or 35 bottles per minute theoretically. Ideal for fill volumes from 3ml-130ml. When filling semi viscous liquids such as MCT oils, lotions, essential oils etc. FILAMATIC recommends a 60ml capacity pump with a fill volume range of 6ml-60ml. This recommendation is based on the torque the AB-5 delivers. The 130ml pump is recommended for aqueous liquids.
The Model AB-8 delivers a fill speed at a max rate of 23 RPM or 23 bottles per minute theoretically. Ideal for fill volumes from 3ml-130ml. When filling semi viscous liquids such as MCT oils, lotions, essential oils etc. FILAMATIC recommends a 130ml capacity pump with a fill volume range of 13ml-130ml. This recommendation is based on the torque the AB-8 delivers. The 260ml pump is recommended for aqueous liquids.
