QUESTIONS ABOUT FLUID FILLING SYSTEMS
What is special about Wilkris fluid filling systems?
The key issue is reliability.
There are two main reasons why a Wilkris fluid filling system is reliable:
1. The system verifies every fill cycle. The volumetric system is verified by the fluid level system every cycle.
2. The system uses a variable rate delivery system that makes the mechanical portion of the system superior.
Can the Wilkris fluid filling system catch one in 10,000 improper fills?
Yes, The system verifies every fill cycle. In addition, diagnostic checks of both sensing systems are run with each cycle. If a fault is discovered, the system stops the process.
Can the Wilkris fluid filling system handle multiple fluids?
Yes, Wilkris Company has a great deal of experience handling multiple fluids and error proofing the process.
Can the Wilkris fluid filling system handle multiple fill points?
Yes, Wilkris Company has experience handling multiple fill points and error proofing this process as well.
Can the Wilkris fluid filling system provide a dripless fill system?
A truly dripless filling system is dependent upon the final configuration of the product and the fill head. It is impossible to say yes without the final design of both components. However, Wilkris engineers are striving to create a truly dripless fill head.
Can a customer's system communicate?
Yes, Wilkris Company has a large amount of experience in most of the standard industrial communication networks and protocols.
What kind of programmable logic controllers (PLC) or computers are provided with Wilkris fluid filling systems?
Wilkris Company uses most of the major brands of PLC's depending on the customer's requirements. Allen Bradley is supplied if there is no preference.
Can the Wilkris fluid filling system read bar codes or radio frequency identifcation (RFID) tags?
Yes, Wilkris Company has a great deal of experience in both methods of identifying products and gathering information.
Is the Wilkris fluid filling system system going to add labor to industrial processes?
No, the Wilkris fluid filling system usually reduces labor because it offers an increased level of automation.
Is the Wilkris fluid filling system system going to increase manufacturing time?
No. the system reduces the time it takes to manufacture products in three ways:
1. The variable rate filling process is superior to conventional filling processes; the system can attain faster cycle times.
2. The level of automation is generally higher and therefore allows the operator to perform other duties other than filling.
3. The system performs two functions at the same time, filling and quality assurance. This is normally a two step process.
How long does it take to get a filling system?
A simple one fluid system takes 6-8 weeks from down payment to run-off at a Wilkris production facility
