For lower capacity box filling or for applications where space is limited, the Tong single box filler offers gentle and efficient filling of vegetable boxes. With simple operation and optimum health and safety in mind.
GENTLE BOX FILLING
Manufactured with a hydraulically operated box platform, the single box filler works by lifting the empty box in a pivot action over the fruit and vegetable conveyor. As the crop enters the box, the crop sensor controls the steady lowering of the box as it fills, and when the box fully down in its original position, the feed belt continues to fill the box, automatically stopping the belt when the box is full. When the full box is replaced with an empty box, the start button on the box filler can be pressed and the cycle continues, effectively completing the box filling.
So, if you’re looking for a safe, effective and gentle box filling, suitable for use on a wide range of vegetables including potatoes, onions, carrots, brussel sprouts and more, choose a Tong box filler. Contact us to discuss your requirements further.
HYDRAULIC BOX PLATFORM
The single box filler operates with a hydraulic box lifting system to carefully tilt boxes over the crop feed conveyor. Ensuring crop is delivered into the bottom of the box as closely as possible, for minimal drop and the gentlest handling.
BUFFER HOLDING CONVEYOR
When operated with the option of a buffer conveyor, there is no need for the grading or processing line to stop whilst the box is replaced. The buffer conveyor holds crop that is fed onto it from the handling line, until the box is changed and ready for filling to commence. This option means minimal downtime and maximum throughputs from the single box filler.
Designed to offer gentle handling of crop, the single filler ensures minimal drop at all times throughout the entire box filling process, with the pivoted box staying as close to the feed conveyor as possible at all times.
