The BB50 is a fully automatic bag-in-box filler manufactured by EnoItalia in Italy. The most advanced model of EnoItalia’s bag-in-box fillers, the BB50 automatically feeds bags into its vacuum filling system, cuts and separates the bags, and feeds them down a conveyor for box packaging. The system consists of three modules – the filling machine itself, a stainless steel enclosed control panel, and a motorized roller conveyor where boxes receive the filled bags. The possibility to choose between different types of flow sensors allows the BB30 to be used with liquids of different viscosities, including wine, fruit juices, olive oil and more. Filling can be carried out at room temperature or hot up to 212°F / 100°C. In the case of hot filling, specific accessories are available depending on your set up. A self-priming volumetric pump with rubber impeller is installed as standard. This pump offers a high flow rate, the possibility to prime/draw from any container, an anti-pressure by-pass valve and a total drain valve for emptying the filling circuit.
If you will install a filter station before the filler, it is recommended to install a buffer tank in between the filter and the filler. Two options are available: the Atmospheric Tank and the Isobaric Tank. The Atmospheric Tank is a simple solution, 200L in size with internal level sensor and external control for a pump. The Isobaric Tank is a more professional 100L automatic buffer tank that uses nitrogen to push liquid into the filler. With this configuration, the BB50 will not include the pump, and the control panel will have an automatic program to set the pressure and used during filling or washing.
The Autotuning function allows automatic calibration of the machinery, eliminating the need to carry out countless samples. Repeatability of volumes with an error of ± 0.2%.
The Siemens PLC control panel allows you to manage all the filling phases, adapting the machine to any type of liquid treated (wine, fruit juices, oil, water, creams, etc.). From the touch screen control panel, you can program and manage the filling cycle, adjust working speed, calibrate dosages, and execute washing and sanitizing operations.
The machine can be sanitized with a CIP circuit using the special stainless steel tap and the automatic program. Furthermore, the BB50 is designed to perform 230°F / 110°C steam sanitization.
