Case Study – Amphora Aromatics
Location: Bristol, United Kingdom
Amphora Aromatics fills a wide range of liquids from free flowing floral waters through to viscous creams and gels into a wide range of bottle and container sizes, so flexibility was an important factor. Amphora Aromatics had been using a number of small filling machines as well as having some products packed by sub-contractors, which was time-consuming and expensive, so they wanted to automate what they could and bring most of the production in-house.
Some of the liquids being filled are flammable, so ATEX certification for use in potentially explosive atmospheres was also a requirement.
Products to fill:
- Essential Oils
To accommodate the wide range of liquids, Universal Filling Machine Company supplied the client with a Voluvac liquid filling machine. This unique machine combines Universal’s Posivac filling system for vacuum level filling of free flowing liquids, such as the floral waters, with a Posimatic EV1000 volumetric filling machine for the more viscous liquids. Cap tightening is done using Universal’s Posicap cap tightening machine, before transferring through a Herma labelling machine.
