Winegrowers Supplies  -  semi-automatic and fully automatic fillers for Bag in boxes

A small buffer tank is always needed between a pasteuriser and Bib filler. The Bib filler does not run continuously - while placing and removing the bag the filling valve is closed and the pump switches off. This change in the juice flow is compensated for with the buffer tank.
Inside the buffer tank a small stainless steel float is installed which will switch off the pasteuriser if the buffer tank becomes full.

A comparison of the Technibag with the Voran and Kreuzmayr models:-

They are two totally different systems.

The KBF 900 and KBF 1800 are nearly the same as the Voran MBF 500 and MBF 750, they are all gravity fillers.
With one filling nozzle you cannot achieve a high filling speed. To reach a higher speed Kreuzmeyer has combined two of the units as the KBF 1800.

Technibag pumps the juice into the bag.

The Kreuzmayr and Voran models are made completely from stainless steel.
Technibag has everything in contact with the product made from stainless steel, the frame is made in powder coated steel. The powder coated frame is very resistant to corrosion.

With Technibag the tap is removed and placed using a manual lever. That’s a big advantage. In cool rooms the taps are not easy to remove manually.

The Technibag creates a vacuum before filling (less oxidation during filling) and is ready to inject inert gas after filling if required.

Technibag Sympaty has an automatic start system. You place the bag into the fork, use the lever to remove the tap and move the filling nozzle on to the neck (all that needs only 3 to 4 seconds). Then the machine keeps the valve automatically in position, makes the vacuum and fills the correct quantity, then fits the tap.
