Spee-Dee Combination Filler

Combination Fillers for Multiple Cereal Components

Spee-Dee’s combination fillers are used when two or more additives are required, such as instant oatmeal with oats and dried fruits, pre-mixed in the same package.

  • Several configurations available to meet specific breakfast food filling applications
  • Easily integrate an auger (for pre-mixes) with up to two volumetric cup fillers (for additives)
  • Fill two particulates and a powder in a single pouch at rates up to 120 containers per minute with a three-filler equipment configuration
  • Reduces cleaning time by separating allergens from the rest of the filling line system

Advanced Volumetric System (AVS) Offers Precise Fills

Spee-Dee’s AVS directly mounts over a VFFS bag machine, replacing large, complicated multihead weighers that typically require a mezzanine. The AVS delivers precise fills when cereal packagers need to fill by volume and sell by weight.

  • Smart filler automatically adjusts fills based on feedback from the checkweigher to account for density fluctuation of cereal, oatmeal and other breakfast foods
  • Less than half the cost of a more complicated multihead weigher
  • Simple, operator-friendly design with fewer moving parts and less to maintain
  • Quick changeover of cups and tooling within minutes boosts uptime productivity versus several hours with typical multihead weighers
