Case Study – Falcon Equine Feeds Ltd.
Location: West Chiltington, West Sussex, United Kingdom
Falcon Equine Feeds provides the very best natural ingredients for equine diets. The feed is produced to the highest quality, ensuring maximum freshness, palatability and nutritional analysis.
Therefore when the Director / Owner approached Universal at a trade show, they were looking for a filling machine manufactured to the very highest of food and pharmaceutical quality standards.
Having extensive experience in the Veterinary / Animal Health industry, Universal was delighted to be chosen to work with Falcon on this very important project.
Falcon Equine Feeds was looking for a machine that would fill a wide range of Nutritional Supplements for horses into containers up to 5 litres in size.
Products to fill:
- Linseed Oil
- Vegetable Oil
- Nutritional Supplements
- Cod Liver Oil
Our solution was the Universal P5000 semi-automatic volumetric filling machine with 2 heads. All metal parts on this machine are manufactured in high grade 316L food and pharmaceutical quality stainless steel. This P5000 machine specification ensures repeatability, speed and accuracy and manufactured with a full diving nozzle assembly overcomes issues associated with foaming liquids. Pneumatic nozzles also ensure drip free and splash free filling for the customer.
Universal also supplied a Capping Machine to work in conjunction with the filler.
The P5000 can also be manufactured with one filling head. We can also manufacture an automatic 5-litre filling machine – the Posimatic EV-5000 fully automatic volumetric filling machine. The twin head P5000 Falcon purchased is modular in design – therefore they have the option to upgrade the machine to an automatic system in the future when production demands extra capacity.
