Monoblock for Micro-tubes and Micro-vials
The ESS Technologies, Inc. Monoblock Filler/Capper for Micro-Tubes and Micro-Vials offers servo driven filling and capping components and handles over 100 micro-tubes per minute. The large, full color touch screen provides an operator interface to adjust the servo controls for the diving nozzles as well as the pump fill rates. Mechanical filling systems may be specified for lower filling speeds or systems that require intrinsically safe controls. A unique infeed design delivers tubes directly into the zero-backlash turret, eliminating the need for a container infeed system. This allows for a fast and easy changeover that can be completed in less than 15 minutes typically. The ESS designed capping station and magnetic stainless steel clutch system guarantee precise, reliable, and repeatable results. The stainless steel exterior and hard-anodized aluminum inner frame allow for ease of cleaning. Standard machine guarding is constructed of aluminum profile with Lexan panels to ensure safe operating conditions. ESS also offers a new compact, cost-effective Mini Monoblock, the Model MB 25, which fills up to 60 bottles per minute. Contact ESS for more information about the MB 25 Mini Monoblock.
