Company: Hinds-Bock Corp., Bothell, WA
Equipment Snapshot: Hinds-Bock Corp.’s new 8P-06 Ultra-Hygienic filler was designed with food processors' food contamination concerns in mind. It features minimal flat surfaces by using slope-top covers and NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosures. Wire looms separate all wiring and airlines for quick and easy sanitation. A tubular frame allows for wash-through to reach all parts of the filler, while a tilt hopper provides quick access to product ports. Spout holders prevent spouts from resting on contaminated surfaces during sanitation. The 8P-06 filler also is designed to be fully disassembled in less than 5 minutes, limiting production downtime. Accompanying the filler is Hinds-Bock’s new Ultra-Hygienic version of its P-128 transfer pump, which has been redesigned with all controls mounted in a NEMA 4X stainless steel enclosure and minimal flat surfaces.
