Contract manufacturer in the US Stapleton-Spence has placed a new monobloc liquid rotary filler and capper purchased from Pacific Packaging Machinery into its beverage production line.
The company updated its 120,000ft² processing plant in Gridley, California to fulfill growing demand for beverage copacking projects.
The rotary pressure/level fill system and rotary chuck-style capping system has been designed to support three-shift, seven-day per week operations with a filling speed of up to 300 containers per minute.
Supported containers, which are constructed from either glass or plastic, range from 12 to 96oz. For each container size, handling parts include quick-change, tool-free installation.
The plant has six production lines. In 2012, the company installed a solar water heating system that includes 20,000ft² of solar panels, at the plant.
Stapleton-Spence produces and distributes copack, private label, and brand food products. It copacks bottles, cans, form/fill/seal and pouch bags, and aseptic products.
