Filling has become a vital process in the packaging industry and this coupled with recent growth in the packaging industry has fueled the growth in the filling equipment market. Furthermore, the recent technological advancements and increased focus on process automation has revolutionized the way filling equipment industry works. Major companies are developing new filling equipments to meet the demand as per changing needs, which in turn has also widened the applications for these equipments.
The piston filler is one of the conventional fillers used in the packaging industry and is suited for filling thick or high viscous products that are either paste, semi paste, and chunky or for viscous chemical preparations like waxes, epoxys, lubricant oil, grease, adhesives etc. These fillers are primarily manufactured to meet food grade standards as it measures a product using a reciprocating piston of predetermined volume. Piston fillers are also suited for filling of products ant both low and medium speeds.
Piston Filler Market Dynamics:
Piston fillers are more cost effective, accurate and also are the fastest way to fill viscous products. These factors together with the lower cost conventional technology that is easy to understand for most users drives the demand for the piston filler market. Despite the advantages associated with piston fillers, there are several factors that act as restraints in the piston filler market. Few of the hindrances associated with piston filler market are as follows: these fillers are not suitable for thin products because there is risk associated with leakage of thin products and piston fillers are not mechanized for that. In addition, the cleanup of this fillers becomes very difficult and time consuming, when multiple product and container size changes are involved and also there is a particular range of fill volumes that can be run on the machine. Furthermore, the arrival of servo positive displacement fillers can make piston filler technology obsolete and can negatively impact the demand in the piston filler market.
