Hot Fill Lines
Hinds-Bock Corp., Seattle, debuted hot fill lines ideal for a wide variety of food and bakery products such as soups, sauces, stew and cheese, among other items.
These hot fill lines feature heated filling machines to maintain the proper fill temperature. Heat options include insulated or jacketed hoppers, which accept plant-supplied hot water or self-contained hot oil heat systems with multi-zone control to heat the entire filling flow path. These systems can maintain plus or minus one degree at temperatures up to 210°F.
