Used Filling Machine FAQs
What is the capacity of the used filling machine?
Keep your production needs and goals in mind when evaluating the capacity of the filling equipment you’re interested in. Find out the equipment’s speed or capacity, the maximum volume or quantity of product the machine can fill within a given time frame. Understanding the used filling machine’s capacity will help you determine whether it can meet your production requirements or not.
What type of products is the filling equipment designed for?
Make sure you know both the prior use of the filling equipment as well as the compatibility with your product. Used filling equipment is designed for specific types of products including liquids, powders, granules, and more, so to ensure proper filling, you’ll want to understand the machine’s compatibility.
Types of used filling machines include gravity fillers, piston fillers, overflow fillers, vacuum fillers, net weight fillers, auger fillers, volumetric fillers, time-pressure fillers, aseptic fillers and more. Revelation Machinery offers a regularly updated inventory of used filling machines for a variety of industries. View our wide selection of used filling equipment above.
What is the fill accuracy of the equipment?
Fill accuracy is how precisely the equipment can dispense the desired amount of product into each container. Not only is fill accuracy essential for maintaining a quality product, and avoiding waste, but also to ensure you’re meeting regulatory requirements. Many times, fill accuracy is included in the product listings on a used equipment dealer’s website, but you can always reach out to check the fill accuracy and other specifications you may have questions about.
What is the condition of the filling machinery?
Most used equipment dealers will offer many photos and oftentimes, videos, which can give you a good look at the equipment from a variety of angles. Assess the overall condition of the used filling equipment, its physical appearance, signs of wear and tear, damage or malfunction. Ensure critical components are in good working condition including pumps, valves, sensors, and control mechanisms.
How old is the used filling equipment and how long has it been used?
Ask if there is documentation of the filling equipment’s maintenance and service history. This can help you determine if the machinery has been serviced regularly or if any major issues or repairs have arisen. Purchasing well-maintained equipment can ensure reliability and longevity.
What is the filling speed of the equipment?
Filling speed is how quickly the machine can fill products. Before purchasing a used filling machine, make sure it can meet your desired output by confirming the filling speed.
Is the equipment compatible with your packaging materials and container sizes?
Make sure the filling machine you’re interested in can handle your specific packaging materials and meet your production volume. To determine if it’s compatible with your specific product and packaging requirements, you’ll want to factor in the type of product (liquid, solid, powder), viscosity, particulate size, container size and shape, and the packaging materials you use, such as bottles, cans, and pouches.
Has the filling machine had any equipment upgrades or modifications?
Many times, you can find upgrades or modifications on a used equipment dealer’s product listings, but it’s best to always speak with a used machinery expert to confirm whether any upgrades or modifications have been made to the machine you’re interested in. If so, find out how these upgrades or modifications change or enhance its performance, efficiency, or compatibility with your needs.
Does the equipment require any specific utilities or connections?
Make sure your facility can support any power requirements the filling machine has including voltage and phase, as well as air, water, or other utility connections you’ll need to operate the filling equipment.
Is the filling machine energy efficient?
Energy efficient equipment can help minimize operating costs and promote energy savings. Speak with the used equipment dealer to find out if there are any energy efficient features or technologies associated with the filling equipment including energy-efficient motors or automated shut-off systems.
What factors should be considered with the cost of the filling equipment?
When looking at the cost of used filling machinery, you’ll want to factor in the manufacturer, model, age, condition, features, and capabilities. Look at potential return on investment and the possibility of selling the used filling machine to a used equipment dealer in the future. You’ll also want to take transportation costs into consideration. While many used equipment dealers have their equipment stored in one location, Revelation Machinery has used equipment across the country, saving you money on transportation costs.
Does filling equipment come with safety features?
While safety features are usually included in the details of a product listing on used equipment dealer websites, you should always double check with the dealer to find out what safety features are integrated on the filling machine. These can include safety guards, emergency stop buttons, interlocks, and other measures that can help ensure a safe operation and protect filling machine operators from potential hazards.
