ABA-M425 is a dual head volumetric liquid filling machine designed for an intrinsically safe (explosion proof) area with a C1D1 rating. Although this machine itself is filling latex paint, it is located in a plant with a C1D1 rating which must be adhered to. This machine features our 5 gallon double acting piston pumps, topoff system, a lid placer with orientation, a 5 gallon roller lid press, and a stainless steel product supply tank. 

Anthony Barber Associates is proud to offer an extensive line of machines designed to fill in hazardous areas. Our intrinsically safe (explosion proof) machinery can be designed for both C1D1 (Class 1 Division 1) or C1D2 (Class 1 Division 2) areas. We have both volumetric and net weight machines and both semi and fully automatic models. ABA-M425 is a volumetric machine designed to fill in a C1D1 area. As with all the filling machines we manufacture, our intrinsically safe models are customizable and feature any combination of additional equipment such as lid placers, droppers, placers, etc. As always, working with our customers to create the most beneficial machine for their fill environment is a top priority of ours.

This machine features ABA's 5 gallon double acting volumetric piston pumps, the ABA-2000-GCV's. Our entire line of volumetric piston pumps are built to the same high standards using cast ends and elbows and stainless steel and Teflon wetted parts. We only offer double acting pumps as we believe they are higher quality and longer lasting than single acting alternatives. The efficiency of these pumps coupled with their easy to maintain design make them a popular choice with high speed and high accuracy applications. A simple to use handle with counter allows the operator to make quick stroke adjustments and duplicate those adjustments easily by utilizing the counter to set pumps to the same stroke number. 

Our high speed lid placer, ABA-LPHSC-5, is optionally available with lid bung orientation, which is displayed on this machine. The lid dropper is designed to self-center lids onto the containers as they pass below it and comes with adjustable release paddles which allow for the placement of round, square, and rectangluar lids. An infeed linestop automatically spaces the incoming containers and the chute is automatically primed with lids for the next container. The sensors on the unit notify the operator when the lids are running low and it automatically stops containers when it runs out of lids completely. The lid orientation system spins the lid until the bung is facing the correct direction according to the information input in the recipe.

The ABA-PRESS-5NAR is  our non-powered 5 gallon roller lid press which is designed to press lids on to pint containers through 6 gallon pails. This press features 32 gradually declining steel rollers and a stainless steel sheet metal guard to cover the chains and sprockets associated with height adjustment. A hand crank located on a corner of the unit allows for quick and simple height adjustment.

Lastly, this machine showcases our ABA-TOPOFF-COV-100 cone style fill head designed to deposit anti-skimming agents onto the surface of an already filled container. This design ensures that the anti-skimming product is more gently released and does not forcefully break the surface of the liquid in the container below.
