Silgan Equipment introduced the newest member of its WC capper line, the WC150. This compact capper is designed for use by smaller filling operations or contract packagers seeking a cost-effective addition to their capping lines.
The WC150 is reportedly designed to apply 27-110 mm regular and deep Twist-Off and press on (PT)Ò caps on glass food jars at rates of 100-150 per minute, depending on cap type and jar style. The system could accommodate jar heights of 50-285 mm and Jar diameter 40-140 mm.
The WC150’s features could make it ideal as an introductory machine, or in operations where production requirements are moderate and floor space is limited, but reliable performance and quality results are essential. The new system incorporates the main features of the larger WC systems at a lower price point and occupies a reduced footprint.
Silgan Equipment’s proven steam vacuum technology reportedly provides a tight hermetic cap seal, and the WC150’s synchronized machine head and conveyor drive ensure a smooth capping operation. The unit features a compact footprint: 60.6 ins. in length, 63 ins. tall and 39 ins. wide.
Constructed of high-quality stainless steel (VA, 316L), and acid-resistant plastic materials, WC150 meets the hygiene design requirements of food operation environments, including being wash-down safe.
