Honey Filling Machine 2

$1,299.00

Honey Filling Machine

201 Stainless steel.

Every machine tested by an engineer.

This is the quick and easy way to accurately fill honey containers. Suitable for any type of liquid.

Easy to calibrate measure of 50 gm to 2500 gm. Digital scales.

Semi automatic.

Use the control pad on scales to set volume of honey to be dispensed. Connect pneumatic line to air compressor ( not supplied ).  Plug into electric supply single phase 10 amp. Fill the 33 litre tank with honey . ( 47KG ). Press the foot pedal or fill button on scales.

Air compressor needs to be 550 watt , or greater , with minimum 9 litre a minute output. Doesn’t need to be food grade. Coupling for air hose is standard 1/4”. 43 – 116 p.s.i. , same as 296 kPa – 800 kPa.

Honey flows at 80 gm a second, 4.8 kg a minute. That is according to the manufacturers specifications. Flow rate will vary due to viscosity of honey. May be a slower rate for thick honey. Flow nozzle altered to larger size.

Fill accuracy + / – 2 gm , within 1%. This has been tested and found to be reliable.

550 watt motor.

Height adjustable legs.

Instructions are in English on the machine. It’s very easy to set up and operate.

Hearing protection recommended.

Easy to assemble and clean.

1/4” air line included. Connects to air compressor.

12 month warranty under normal working conditions. ( All day , every day !! )

Price includes freight to anywhere in Australia. Set up instructions in English included.

We really did our homework on these. They are factory tested twice. When we got them we distributed to 5 customers. We stayed in touch with them all at once on Messenger while they assembled then used the machine. We had a Chinese engineer and a sales rep on stand by , but they were not needed as all went fine. The machine worked perfectly.

VISCOSITY OF HONEY

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1081/JFP-120016626

This is an excellent article dealing with the viscosity of Australian honey.

I will quote…..” Knowledge of the rheological behavior of honey is of practical interest and is critical during storage, handling and processing.[1,2] Viscosity, one of the important rheological
properties of honey, is influenced by several factors. The viscosity of honey is highly temperature sensitive.[3] As honey is heated, it initially undergoes a very rapid decrease in
viscosity per degree rise in temperature. At temperatures in excess of 30C the change in viscosity is much slower, while between 45C and 60C the decrease in viscosity is almost
negligible.[4] Generally, as temperature rises, viscosity falls because there is less molecular friction and hydrodynamic forces decrease.[5]
Moisture content is another factor influencing viscosity. The moisture content of honey shows varietal differences and may range from 13%[1] to 29%[6] but is generally considered to have an average of 17.2%.[3,7–9] Generally, higher moisture content results in lower viscosity.
Honeys of similar moisture content but different floral origin vary to some extent in viscosity.[3,4] These variations are attributed to the composition of individual sugars and to
non-sugar, and colloidal material.[3,4] The major sugars in honey are the monosaccharides fructose and glucose.

Additionally, small amounts of disaccharides (sucrose, maltose, and
turanose) are present. The gross physical attributes of honey are largely determined by the types and concentrations of carbohydrates.[10] The higher the number of monosaccharide units the higher the viscosity.[5] While, there is no research published on the sugar concentration dependence of honey viscosity it is proposed that viscosity can be related to
the molality of solutes.[11]

Armed with this information we went back to our supplier who in turn went back to the manufacturer. We arranged for a higher capacity flow nozzle to be installed on all of these latest machines. As this has never been used before the flow rate quoted above may be exceeded. Different thicknesses of honey will vary the flow rate. Be assured this machine will deliver our 2 objectives, a fast as is reasonably possible flow rate with a high degree of accuracy.
